On Apr. 7, 2017, the Highway Equipment & Supply Co. Drums branch held its fourth annual Customer Appreciation Day at Whitetail Preserve in Sugarloaf, Pa. A large turnout of local customers came to look at the equipment lineup and enjoy a day of skeet shooting, trap shooting, sporting clays and free giveaways.

Whenever a white sporting clay appeared, the lucky shooter received a free Volvo CE, Carlson Paving Products, or LeeBoy Performance branded hat or Volvo CE t-shirt. In addition to shooting, customers also were given the opportunity to test their skills on a Volvo excavator simulator, operate a remote-controlled Bobcat skid steer loader and attempt to pick up soccer balls and tennis balls with a Bobcat excavator.

The event also featured a raffle, courtesy of Christopher Hanley, district finance manager of Volvo Financial Services. The raffle included two Samsung televisions, one Amazon Echo and two Carhartt jackets.

Following a hearty lunch, Ryan Flood, vice president, and Mary Alexander, marketing and communications assistant, drew and announced the winners:

• Dale Lindenmuth of Blaschak Coal Corporation and Larry Wynn of Linde Corporation were the lucky television winners;

• Karl Bettleyon of Central Builders took home the Amazon Echo; and

• Todd Smith of Pennsy Supply and Gregg Gerko of Mrs. T's Pierogies won the jackets.

Some of the sales and marketing representatives from Highway, including Flood; Alexander; Bob Palermo, sales manager; Justin Bloss, service manager; Joe Rick, Adam Bogert and Brian Hoffman, territory sales managers; Jamie Kane, Bobcat line sales representative; Adam Drumheller, product support manager; and Jason Bissol, product support representative, were directly responsible for promoting the event, coordinating it and making it a success for the fourth year in a row.
