Pond Forum, May 1 and 2, 2009; was hosted by Carson Enterprises and sponsored by Anjon Manufacturing and Industrial Sales. The annual event was an action packed two days which allowed homeowners and individuals to work and learn alongside contractors and professionals from Anjon’s wealth of knowledge and experience.
The intense training process covered all aspects of water feature installation from using Anjon’s Pond Calculator, Vanishing Waterfall Calculator to Pipe Sizing Chart and Prefect Liner Penetrations. Scott Carson of Carson Enterprises stated, “I have never seen a company so amazingly knowledgeable regarding their products and supplies, in addition to so much kindness each person brought”, to the project.
“Anjon Manufacturing is honored to have teamed up with our Master Distributor Industrial Sales and their customer Carson Enterprises to achieve three goals; One: to work really hard in the construction process, two: to educate pond builders in techniques of building a pond the right way and three: to generate a donation to Make-A-Wish. In addition we certainly had a lot of fun” Stated Anjon Manufacturing CEO, Jon Lottes.
Lottes, standing on top of the 22 foot waterfall went on to say, “an event like this could not happen unless there are lots of partners all pulling together to make it happen.” He further thanked: ADS, Atlantic Water Gardens, Creative Lighting Concepts, Cresline, Ebara, Heritage Nursery, Spears and a 6 ton thank you to Titan Machinery, all of these companies donated their time, materials and cash for Make-A-Wish.”
As an oversized check was presented to Make-A-Wish’s Angie Kros. Kros stated; “when you help another person and give them a hand up, you encourage everyone around you. Our difficulty lies in thanking you for your very generous gift of time and efforts in raising an amazing $15,250.00 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Nebraska!” “Your hard work and tenacity and getting the community involved was unsurpassed and you made this happen;” Kros went on to say. “I accept this check on behalf of the children and their families whom you have provided hope, strength and joy to face the adult-sized battles and fears that have been placed upon them at such a tender age” Kros finished.
The evening was capped off with maniacal bull riding, Nebraska BBQ and live music.
