At the2013 Northeastern Forest Products Equipment Expo, in Bangor, Maine, equipmentwas meticulously cleaned. From wheels to cab, from tracks to roof, the machineshad been detailed for hours to get them in perfect shape for the show. And theystayed that way.
Excludingone machine at the Chadwick-BaRoss booth. Yes, it was prepared with the same care as the others. And yes, it wasonce shining from counterweight to processor head. But when the show started onMay 17, the glossy gleam was quickly replaced with a different kind of shine.
That’sbecause during Chadwick-BaRoss’ “Make Your Mark” event, children wereencouraged to “make their mark” by painting, drawing and placing handprints ona Volvo EC210 CL.
ToChadwick-BaRoss’ Marketing Manager, Jacob Adams, involvement in the communityis exceedingly valuable. “When we contribute locally the results are visible,not only to the company, but to the community as well. Whether it is assistinga nearby school with training, supporting local emergency departments.”
Donationswere encouraged but not necessary. Ages of mark makers ranged from 1 to 70, butthat’s not to say there weren’t any outliers! The proceeds from the event wentto Log A Load for Kids and The Children’s Miracle Network. The total donationto the two charities was matched by Chadwick-BaRoss.
