On Friday, August 13th, we brought our interns, managers and other team members to downtown Galesburg in Park Plaza for an Intern End of Summer Blast! We had Smokin' Willies BBQ food truck cater lunch. (If you've never tried their food, you're missing out!) The weather was perfect and many great conversations were had!

Joe Fiorenzi, Territory Aftermarket Business Manager for John Deere, attended our Intern End of Summer Blast and talked with them about John Deere and how they can grow their careers within the business. Thanks for coming, Joe!

Also attendance were Instructors Jeff Gardner and Colin Campbell from Illinois Central College, Instructor Todd Thompson from Spoon River College and Ken Springer with Knox County Area Partnership for Economic Development. Thanks for coming, Jeff, Colin, Todd and Ken!

We also had 3 big prizes our interns could win: Weber Grill with accessories, Yeti cooler and a Vizio TV! Congrats to the following winners (left to right): Logan Wistedt (Aledo), Ethan Fowler (Galesburg), Nate Olsen (Bloomington)

Along with the prizes, each intern received a bomber jacket with our logo and Internship 2021 embroidered on it! Pictured is Dalton Kiselewski, Marketing Specialist, who did a Marketing Internship with us earlier this year after graduating from Western Illinois University with her Marketing degree.
