Employee Spotlight

Terry McGlaughlin and her husband Mike have lead a 4-H dog agility and skill training group called Dogs-R-Us  for the past 3 years. During the workshop, students from kindergarten through senior high learn how to teach their dogs obedience, agility, rally (a walking obstacle course), and basic care. These skills are then presented each year at the county fair.


Terry, who has brought home her own ribbons and trophies from showing their Corgis at state and national events, is the head instructor. Mike is a 47-year veteran of the car business. His talents with math and numbers make him a great fit for the Moser Ford Finance office. But, it’s his talents with his hands that dovetail with Dogs-R-Us. Mike has built a lot of the wooden agility equipment on which the dogs train. 

The 4H students have shown well in recent county fairs under Terry’s direction. Last year, Terry and Mike took a student to state who won four golds and a silver medal with two different dogs! This year three students went to the state competition. Out of the eight events, the students only registered one fault. These performances earned them eight Gold Medals! Even the Dogs-R-Us float entered in this year’s Celina Lake Fest won accolades, taking home first place in the Best of Theme category.

Mike’s talents are appreciated at Moser Ford, and we are proud to have him as a team member. When you purchase a car from us, Mike is always there to help with the numbers and you can probably get him to talk about his dogs too! 

Giving Back

Food Resource Bank, a worldwide non-profit organization, provides food assistance in places of conflict or disaster, educates farmers of developing countries to improve soil health and yields, and advocates for fair food access. FRB funds 3-5 year projects in needy areas of the world with resources from local businesses and farmers. Participants from Moser Motor Sales include Phil Eicher, previous co-owner – now retired; Jim Eicher, owner; and Joe Graber, Commercial Truck Sales Manager.

Phil serves as co-chair, along with Jeff Lehman of Lehman Feed Mill, of the Adams County FRB branch, which has donated over $500,000 since the local chapter formed in 2006. Local farmers donate a percentage of their fields yield to FRB. Businesses donate fertilizer, weed control spray, and funding. Operators contribute labor, fuel and seeds. All of these people working together have helped countless individuals in the most remote and poorest regions of the world.Church of the Brethren, Catholic, Mennonite, and Methodist churches are among the different local denominations that unite with the FRB.

Phil Eicher in Columbia

Phil personally experienced some of the projects that Adams County FRB supports, visiting Columbia where farmers were being encouraged to switch from growing cocaine to growing cocoa beans. “I am convinced that faith-based grass roots agricultural development projects are the best way for people to be able to feed themselves,” Phil stated.
