Hershey Hotel Loses Over 50 Trees while Tents Stand Tall

In spite of a severe weather event taking out more than 50 trees around the Hotel Hershey, our tents rode out the storm with nary a scratch. The storm which blew through Dauphin County seemed to concentrate its energy on the Hershey area.  PPL reported the storm caused power outages for over 11,000 people. According to the NOAA report issued Friday night,  the weather event was listed as a Microburst with winds reported at 50 to 70 MPH.  The report stated over 100 trees were affected in the surrounding area.

Developing a Production Schedule for University Commencement

University events are among the biggest jobs we produce and deliver.  To insure quality and timeliness of each event,  we develop a Production Schedule for each job, so that no detail is overlooked.  A university event such as commencement or homecoming is in the planning stage 6 to 12 months prior to the day of the event.  Planning takes into consideration staffing, material handling, trucking, subcontracting, and site attendants, just to name a few.  We produce between 25 and 30 such events per year.
