PAIR Day at Ft Leavenworth
MilitaryAvenue just had a very exciting weekend attending a special event at Ft Leavenworth, Kansas hosted by the US Army's Family Morale Welfare Recreation. The Post Activities Information and Registration (PAIR) Day was held on Saturday.
It provided a great opportunity for us to spread the word about our wonderful patriotic business partners and share information with the large Army population and other service members stationed at Ft Leavenworth. The best part of this opportunity is that many of the military family participants are there for schools varying in length from 4-8 months and will be moving to your neighborhood soon! So we shared information about us and you at the same time to a very mobile commuity looking for your services and products in the near future!
Our booth featured easy to take business cards, small brochures and media kits about MilitaryAvenue and we had the biggest banner in the building for the 3,000+ military personnel who visited us. The MilitaryAvenue installation sponsor at Ft Leavenworth, Central Michigan University was in attendance and had a booth as well. We had a MilitaryAvenue Partner, Main Street Pet Resort and Day Spa right next to us and they provided extraordinaire support--Thank You Susan! We shared carnations with military spouses and smiling little girls from Platte City Flower and Gift Shoppe and had several drawings for gifts as well!
Shields Manor Bistro donated two wonderful giveaways, a large Magnum of Champagne and a coupon for $100 for a special night out for a military couple too! We had a sensational dinner at this fine dining restaurant with a wonderful ambiance and tremendous food and could recommend it to anyone! It is a best kept secret of Platte City! Thank you Dede and Max! DejaVu Salon & Day Spa donated salon products for a third drawing as well! We had MilitaryReward coupons from Goin Postal and Cooper's Creations that we shared with participants too!
USAA supported us with two iPods that we are giving with our monthly drawing for August for the new military signups at Ft Leavenworth as well!
We had fun, it told our story to a large military family audience and we shared our trademark plastic army men with a bunch of fun kids and laughing moms and dads! Do you have a military fair near you? Call the installation's Morale Welfare and Recreation folks and ask them for ideas. Maybe you could help start something new! Let us know of other events that you participate in for opportunities too!
