Laurel Highlands Area Customer Appreciation Days
13th Annual Customer Appreciation Day
August 28, 2021
The 13th Annual Customer Appreciation Day was held on Saturday, August 28th from 11 AM to 3 PM at the Stahlstown Flax Scutching Grounds. Over 750 customers attended the event. Free LHTC t-shirts were given to the first 500 customers with the event sponsors on the back.
This year we had 8 local businesses from the community share in our event. Somerset Trust Bank played Plinko, Duck’s Maple Farm had a variety of their maple products for sale, Financial & Group Services, Mountain Laurel Chamber of Commerce, Christian Family & Children’s Center, Exelos, Hauer Repair & Mountain Watershed Association all passed out goodies and information to the attendees.
Customers enjoyed a variety of live music provided by Quality Sounds Pittsburgh. While enjoying the great music, customers were able to play games including, Bingo! While waiting for winners of the door prizes to be announced customers enjoyed hot dogs provided by The Dog Side of the Moon, delicious pizza & pepperoni rolls by G&D Market, popcorn, chips from Snyder of Berlin, and cookies. They also cooled down with a shaved ice by Snowie or a delicious ice cream cone prepared by Joe Sarnelli and his wonderful helpers and sponsored by the CRCVFC.
There were plenty of activities for the kids this year, too. There was spin art, balloon art by Faerie Grace, and Face Paint by Celeste. Plus, kids enjoyed playing basketball, skee ball, and a soccer dart game. All kids also received a bubble popper.
At the Cable TV game wheel, customers had a chance to win a LHTC aluminum water bottle or a band aid cut kit. Customers also tested their skills at our ring toss game to win LHTC canvas bags or a LHTC key chain hand sanitizer. At Bingo, customers won $15 Gift Cards to Sarnelli’s Corner Market. Customers also had the opportunity to register to win a $100 gift certificate to LHTC Broadband to apply to their account if they submitted their email address at the LHTC Broadband info table. Everyone also had fun grabbing props and striking a pose at the photo booth provided by Moxie Events and posting their photo to social media to commemorate the day.
Everyone had a good time playing the games and socializing on the beautiful summer day. It was a wonderful way to spend the day with family and friends.
