Antique Clock Exhibit in Glass Case in Lobby

Robert (Bob) Kleeman has always shown an interest in making and repairing things.  He built model airplanes as a teenager. In preparation for retirement, he moved on to making clocks.  He bought a few beginner clock repair handbooks, joined a local clock club, and started expanding his skills.  Bob has been repairing clocks for almost 20 years now and still gets great satifaction from restoring a timepiece to its original working condition.  He has repaired all types and all ages of clocks, the oldest ones being from the mid 1800's.  He found those clocks amazingly well designed and manufactured.  He finds it satisfying that these clocks will be around hundreds of years from now. Please come and enjoy this great exhibit in the lobby display case for the month of January.
