The Arc of Orleans County's Best Kept Secret

Did you know The Arc of Orleans has an Auto Detailing Shop at the Gardner’s CITGO at 11337 Maple Ridge Road in Medina, NY?  If you answered no, we aren’t surprised.  Sharyl Thomas, Direct Support Professional in the Vocational Department stated, “People in the area still don’t know we are here.”  Surprising, as Auto Detail moved to the Gardner’s CITGO location in 1998.  Prior to 1998, it was located at the old armory building in Medina.  The program is run by The Arc’s Vocational Department with Sharyl Thomas supervising.  Cindy Dowdall, Joe Battle, Jennifer Tabor, and LJ Jurs are the hard-working individuals served by the Agency that take great pride in detailing your vehicles.  They work on cars, pick-ups, mini-vans, and conversion vans.  They will even work on tractors, boats, and tractor trailer cabs.

Valerie Riemer from Waterport, long-time patron of Auto Detail, has had a weekly appointment there for many years.  Valerie stated, “I think it’s awesome.  They do a fantastic job.  The workers are friendly and go about their work.  It’s a great way for me to help out and they in turn help me by providing me with a nice clean car.”

Auto Detail is open year round and is run Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.  Please call ahead for an appointment.  To learn more about The Arc of Orleans County and its services, please call (585)589-5516 or visit us at
