Local Heroes Day
The 1st Annual “Local Heroes Days” event was held to honor our local heroes including Law Enforcement,
Firefighters, First Responders, Past and Present Military, Educators, and Medical Workers. This is not a sales event. Monticello RV Center will not be open for business during these three days. This will allow the staff to focus exclusively on the heroes event. This will be a community with Free admission and no charge for the general public to attend.
“Local Heroes Days” will showcase our local heroes and have representatives and vehicles (new and old) for viewing and interaction with the general public. Wright County Sheriff, Sherburne County Sheriff, State Highway Patrol, Monticello Fire Department, Big Lake City Police, Minnesota Army National Guard plus many other organizations will be in attendance. The front area of the sales lot will be cleared of RV campers and replaced with “heroes” vehicles for the public to view. There will be booths set up inside the dealership so that heroes groups can have information regarding their entities structure and purpose available for attendees. This will allow the public to become more educated about all they do to serve the community.
Each day during the event there will be free food and beverages for the public while supplies last. Hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, sweet corn, and rootbeer will be served. Any kids who meet and talk with one of the law enforcement officers will be given a coupon for a Free ice cream treat redeemable on site at the Cub food table.
Monticello RV Center will be coordinating with their vendors and other community businesses to collect prizes to be given out to any “local heroes” who attend the event. There will be a separate drawing for the general public prizes. Additionally, Free tee shirts will be given out to the first 500 local heroes who attend the event.
“This is a great opportunity for our community to show support for our local heroes.” stated Scott Kunz owner of Monticello RV Center. “These people all work beyond their pay grade. We are grateful to have the venue to host and honor these local heroes at a community event of this nature.”
