It was a day when parents didn’t have to say “don’t touch” or “hands off”. In fact, parents were encouraging their kids to touch and explore the entourage of vehicles that were parked at Magnuson Park on June 2nd during the Junior League of Seattle’s “Touch-A-Truck” event.
Comcast was excited to be part of this community event. Comcast Network Maintenance Manager, John Vavrousek and Network Technician, Corey Lamb, parked their Comcast bucket truck alongside construction trucks, utility vehicles, emergency responders, tractor-trailers, buses and semi-trucks. Children of all ages were thrilled to get so close to these typically “hands-off” vehicles.
Keeping with the theme of the day, children visiting the Comcast bucket truck were able to take with them an XFINITY branded squishy van. “The vans were a smash with the kids,” said Vavrousek. “We had over 1,400 kids and their families stop by to see what the buzz was all about”. Not only did the kids get to walk away with a new toy, but they also walked away knowing that when they want to watch Dora the Explorer, Bob the Builder or Sesame Street, our network is ready for them.
