Pats on the back and a steak lunch were in order for Master Technician Jim Meehan at Hopkins Honda, who has nearly 30 years with the shop and 40 with Honda.
“In today’s times, there’s not a lot of longevity with one brand,” said Honda District Manager Kevin Barlow. “We can look at him as a coach for the younger generation.”
To the far northwest, it was Master Tech Ken Dathe at Luther Family Ford, who celebrated 40 years with the store. Service Manager Brad Jordet said the drivetrain expert is steady, hardworking and “knows his stuff.”
