Adrian Banuelos from Branch 311 organized his first event with Truly Nolen this month. Teaming up with Branch 70 on March 21st, they participated in the Andress High School Marching Band’s 1st Annual Car Show. There were food trucks, jumping balloons for the kids, live music, and an assortment of vendor booths. The mouse cars and Truly antiques were definitely crowd favorites. All proceeds of the event were donated to the Andress Marching Band to help fund their upcoming trip to San Antonio.
The El Paso branch had a great time at the 2015 Home & Garden Show held at the Las Cruces Convention Center last weekend. The event showcased local businesses that cater to the home improvement and proved to be a fun weekend for the whole family. Close to 5,000 people attended the 2 day show and it gave us a great opportunity to get out and mingle with the Las Cruces community.
Team 70 was involved in an Event for Region 19 Education Head Start Center this weekend over 750 families attended the event. Team 70 provided bags which were used exclusively for event and the mousecar balloon was a hit with the crowd. Being part of an event that empowers parents and teaches them to be primary educators for the children was awesome.
Branch 70 was lucky enough to be able to help out with the Franklin High School Baseball’s 100 Inning Fund Raiser this year. The branch donated hot dogs, buns, waters, sodas and condiments which were sold to raise the funds for the team to attend the Phoenix Tournament this year, where the players will be exposed to college coaches and have the opportunity to take their game to the next level.

Branch 70 is sponsoring a local baseball team, Xplosion and they’re already off to a great season. The guys really stand out in their red Truly shirts and they won both of their games at Blackie Chester Park on Sunday. The second game was a complete shutout! Go Team Xplosion!
Robert Munoz recently represented Truly Nolen at the LeBarron Park Elementary Career Day. He set up a display table to show off everything we have to offer and spent time going over all sorts of interesting insect facts with the students. After his presentation, everyone got a chance to check out the Mouse Car, which was definitely a Career Day highlight.
Service Coordinators Herman Pulido and Carlos Cruz attended the El Paso Hispanic Chamber Meet & Greet this week and had a great experience. They welcomed a new customer into the Truly Nolen family and have another person that will likely be joining us in the coming weeks. They got a bunch of information about upcoming community events and even set up a golf tournament for this summer. One of the highlights of the evening was bumping into Leo Caraveo from the El Paso Baseball Hall of Fame
Service Coordinators and the 070 Branch Manager paraded in Mouse Cars across the city and then canvased a neighborhood in East El Paso. They covered a lot of ground and finished off the event by visiting customers.
Team 70 did a community event at the Las Cruces Hooters location. Hooters has been a Truly Nolen customer for a couple of years and we actually met the manager, Will, at an event and now he is allowing us to use his facility for one of our events. The Mouse Car Balloon made it’s first appearance in New Mexico and really got people’s attention. Las Cruces Territory Manager, Robert Munoz, handed out $10 Hooters gift cards to potential customers and everyone was extremely appreciative. A big thank you to all of the service coordinators who helped make this event a success.
