Our 11th Annual Customer Appreciation Day was held on Saturday, August 25, 2018 from 11 AM to 3 PM at the Stahlstown Flax Scutching Grounds. The weather was perfect! The sun was shining and the temperature was great for August. Over 935 customers attended the event making it the biggest turn out yet! The first 500 customers received our annual LHTC Broadband Customer Appreciation Day t-shirt. For those of you have attended since 2007, you have quite the collection of t-shirts!
Not only did our attendance increase but so did our local vendors. We had over 15 local vendor’s who participated in our event this year. They add so much to the event and its great for our community to learn about new businesses and activities. G&D Market really made the customers happy with their amazing pizza samples!
So, what makes this event so much fun? For us it’s bringing the community together with food, games, and music. It feels like one big family reunion! The Katelyn Rose Band got everyone on their feet and singing along from classic country to today’s hits. And come on who doesn’t love hot dogs, nachos, popcorn and cookies! Then to top it off, B-I-N-G-O!!
The kid’s area was a big hit this year! This year we tried something new and added inflatable games like Skee Ball, Basketball, Soccer and Baseball. Plus, we brought the game of all games…Steel City Gamerz gaming bus with all the latest video games! Kids got to try out new gaming systems and new video games, plus they got to enjoy some A/C! And for the kids who wanted to connect with nature, Living Treasures Animal Park brought again this year a petting zoo. So many kids got their faces painted and the balloon art was super impressive. One of the best parts for us was giving away two bikes to two very lucky kids from the door prizes.
There were lots of cool giveaways this year like a cell phone ring, water bottle, notebook, and tote bag, plus over 15 door prizes, but the grand prize was what everyone was waiting for at 3:00; 65” Curved UHD 4K Smart TV!
A lot of work and preparation goes into this event every year and each year we keep trying to make it bigger and better. We see how much it is appreciated by our customers and we can’t wait to start planning for next year! We thank everyone that makes the day such a success, from our employee’s, to the vendors and sponsors, and of course our CUSTOMERS!
We hope to see everyone next year on Saturday, August 24th. (That’s right the date is already booked so mark your calendars!)
