11th Annual Customer Appreciation Day
August 25, 2018
The 11th Annual Customer Appreciation Day was held on Saturday, August 25th from 11 AM to 3 PM at the Stahlstown Flax Scutching Grounds. Over 935 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 15 local businesses from the community share in our event. G&D Market passed out their delicious pizza, Donegal Pharmacy checked blood pressures, and Duck’s Maple Farm had a variety of their maple products for sale, just to name a few.
Customers enjoyed a variety of live music by the Katelyn Rose Band. 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, popcorn, nachos, and cookies.
There were plenty of activities for the kids this year, too. There was sand art, a coloring table, and balloon art & face paint by the Balloon Girlz. Plus, kids enjoyed playing basketball, skee ball, tic-tac-toe, and a soccer dart game. All kids received bags filled with emoji prizes. New this year was a gaming truck by Steel City Gamerz. Kids could challenge each other on the latest gaming systems and games in a mobile gaming theater. Thanks to Living Treasures Animal Park, kids were able to pet animals such as a baby donkey, goats, and snakes!
At the Cable TV game wheel, customers had a chance to win an LHTC note book and LHTC phone ring. Customers also tested their skills at our dime pitch game to win LHTC water bottles or a LHTC tote bag. At Bingo, customers won McDonald and Subway coupons, plus AT&T Sportsnet, HGTV, and CNN network prizes. At the 97.3 Lite FM and 98.7 PA Talk tent customers tried to “Crack the Code” for a chance to win $25,000! Customers also had the opportunity to upgrade their Internet for one month for free and be entered to win an Olli Maatta autographed Pen’s Jersey! 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.
This year’s grand prize was a 65” Curved UHD 4K Smart TV. We also drew prizes every 30 minutes throughout the day. Prizes included a 32” TV, Echo Dot, Kindle 7” Tablet, Amazon Cloud Cam, Bose Bluetooth Speaker, and a Girls and Boys 20” bike. We also gave away various prizes from our local business sponsors and vendors.
