The Mighty Machines Showcase is a fun, family-oriented community event that brings Mighty Machines to life! It provides adults and children of all ages with a chance to see construction and other service vehicles up close. The showcase ran on Saturday, September 17, 2016 and Strong Start was lucky to be the charity partner again for this year’s event. Our staff, and volunteers were on site to host a booth, share our story, and assist with the inflatable games and activities. The event runs rain or shine, and while it certainly rained that day, the weather didn’t stop families from coming out to see some amazing machines.

We had the opportunity to connect with families of children who had been in our programs, as well as caring community volunteers. We also had the opportunity to share the schedule of our 2017 Get Ready for SchoolTM program with preschoolers, and recruit some new Letters, Sounds and WordsTM Volunteer Coaches. We certainly had a blast, and thank Guy Exley from Impact Events Group, and Chicopee Resort for all their hard work to put this showcase together. Our thanks as well to all the families who attended the event, and shared their experiences with us. To date, the Mighty Machines Showcase has raised over $18,000 for charities, an incredible feat.
