Graphenteen presented with Super Service Award

Jeff Graphenteen is the May winner of the Super Service Award, a monthly service prize given by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Graphenteen is a small engine mechanic at L & M Fleet on Highway 59. He has worked there since its opening in 2004.

His nomination for Super Service was from a customer that "was in a pinch" -- and said Graphenteen helped "in a very cordial and professional manner."

Store manager Dan Purkat said Graphenteen is "really a people person and enjoys doing his job to the best of his ability."

During a small ceremony on Friday, May 30, Promotions and Events Committee member Joan Peters presented Graphenteen with a plaque, $25 in chamber bucks and a floral arrangement for his customer service efforts.

The Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce has been awarding Super Service awards for over a year. Recipients have included store clerks, printing specialists, pharmacy workers and the city Parks and Streets Department.
