Pete Lewnes Day

First there was the Energizer Bunny. Then came Pete Lewnes.

Our much-loved Main Street Manager--The Indefatigable One--was honored not once but twice in the last couple of weeks.

The honoree

The Allentown Chamber of Commerce honored Good Neighbor Lewnes at its annual dinner on May 29 at the Holiday Inn downtown.

Allentown's Official "Peter Lewnes Appreciation Day," June 1

This really happened: Sunday, June 1 was the city's "Peter Lewnes Appreciation Day," and here's the proclamation to prove it:

The day needed formal recognition, so a true crowd of appreciators--Lewnatics?--gathered that day at the Allentown Brew Works for pancakes and morning alcohol, Lewnes-style. Aerial ABW photo below....

Lewnatics! Love it.

Pete was also recognized by the Pennsylvania Downtown Center on Tuesday as the manager of the year.

Allentown is lucky to have him.

Congrats on the accolades, Pete! You're becoming too important to hang out with rest of us!

You definitely need to make t-shirts with your face on them that say "I'm a Lewnatic." It would be hilarious! I would wear one. ;)
