On Friday June 10 from 10:30 to Noon we hosted the Travelling Tots (Part of Mommy Connection Cape Breton). This is a group of parents who select business of interest, and ask about a guided tour/demonstration of the business. We hosted a group of twelve parents who brought their toddlers with them ranging in age from 18 months to 4 years old.
While they got here, they were greeted in the showroom and met the staff. Afterward we guided them into the shop where we had sectioned off an area to be “PPE Free”. The area was roped off for safety purposes and we staged it.
During their visit, we escorted the group into the shop to have a close up look at our backhoe and scissor lift that were currently in the shop. The parents enjoyed the close up view and the children had a good time getting to sit in the backhoe and honk the horn.
Following the guided tour of the shop, we took the group in the yard where we had our trained staff operate the machines and perform short demonstrations of the machines different capabilities. The parents were asking questions about the machines and what they are used for. The kids were enjoying seeing the machines operate and splash in the puddles as much as the staff enjoying them watching the machines operate in amazement.
After the excitement in the yard, we brought the group back inside for a BBQ lunch and cold Kool-Aid for the kids and water and pop for the parents. After the lunch, we presented each child with a gift bag to take home with stickers, crayons, CAT coloring book and some other fun stuff for them to enjoy at home.
The group had a good time getting to experience the machinery up close and see how complex some of the repairs can be. It was a good visit and we look forward to hosting them again in the future.
