Uncle Paul Retires from Positively 3rd St. Bakery

Uncle Paul Steklenski, aka “The Cider Man,” is retiring after 27 years of baking wholesome breads for the community. He is one of the bakery’s founders, establishing the worker-owned co-operative in 1983. Luckily he will still do some part-time maintenance.

Good for you and good for our team!  My dad always said that retirement was the best job he ever had!  Hope you can relax and enjoy it.

Aw!  I bet you'll still hang out there, just later in the day.  Great for you!
