Foam E-Z super employee Mark Bouvier will be hanging out at the shop tomorrow, Saturday November 7th. Just in case you don’t know the history Mark has worked for us at Foam E-Z for about three years. He became our “Saturday” Guy and nurtured his own and new clientele making them laugh with his dry sense of humor. He is a shaper and an artist, the Evolution Tee Shirt that debuted at the Foam E-Z Fifteen Year Party is his creation. If you haven’t seen him lately it’s because he got into a terrible car accident on Thursday July 9th, 2009 http://www.ocregister.com/articles/police-beach-huntington-2488973-head-taken. Basically he got rear ended and the car came down on top of him, crushing one side of his head! After removing a portion of his skull to drain some fluid Mark had it replaced on September 25th and has since been sent home from the hospital to rehab. He’s had to relearn to speak and is rehabbing the rest of his body at this time. It’s absolutely amazing how far he has come in such a short time (although to him I’m sure it seems like it’s been forever). In the car with him at the time of the accident was his girlfriend Sarah who was pregnant with their first child. Thank god she walked away with barely a scratch. They have since had healthy-happy baby Jack on October 7th.
We hope many of you can come down and say hello to Mark. He would be stoked to see his Foam E-Z friends both old and new to talk shop. If he’s not in the front of the shop when you arrive he will be in the “Shaping Box” coaching his Friend Dan as he shapes a new board.
We’re working on plans for a benefit party for Mark in the upcoming weeks so stay tuned. In the meantime you can check out Mark’s MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/cheaterfives or email him board building questions or good wishes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you all-
