Ellens Equipment was proud to open their new facility in February of 2016 but waited until August to celebrate with a Grand Opening customer appreciation event.
On August 6th, we invited Dawn's Fresh Catering to do a pig roast for our customers to enjoy and come check out the new facility. There was plenty to see besides the new building including a coin scramble for the kids, a Bobcat excavator challenge, lots of giveaways and a dunk tank.
The dunk tank gave customers and employees a chance to send Don Ellens, Luke Ellens, Kyle Ellens and Brent Whetstone swimming! Each dollar that was raised at the dunk tank was matched 1/1 and donated to Friends Ministry. After a fun day and the match, we were able to donate $626 to the local ministry outreach.
The excavator challenge was one that took plenty of skill and precision. The goal was to hook a hitch pin, remove it from a cone, swing around and place it in the other cone. The winning time as 17.78 seconds!
With lots of giveaways done throughout the day, a pile of sawdust to find money in and lots of equipment to climb on, it was a pretty successful day all around.
Thanks to all who came and the team at Ellens Equipment that continues to work so hard in this community.
