As with previous anniversary celebrations, great crowds and scores of manufacturer representatives came out to support the company and donate some nice prizes for the drawings. Guests and staff members enjoyed catered meals, anniversary cake and fellowship with friends, families and colleagues.
The equipment displays and technology training from manufacturers and Linder specialists at both Orlando and Jacksonville provided opportunities to learn more about each and every line of equipment Linder carries in a relaxed-fun atmosphere.
It was apparent that a good time was had by all.
