Help our friends!

There are there are many great charities out there, and a good deal of them trust Bux-Mont Awards to be their recognition services provider.  There are two we would like to highlight in this post.

First, we are once again proud to be a part of the annual Pennridge Chamber of Commerce Toy Drive.  This Toy Drive benefits the Pennridge FISH food bank organization.  They actually set up a toy store for the holidays and allow parents in need to come in and choose toys and gifts so their kids can have a great holiday.  It is truly a wonderful thing to be a part of, and Bux-Mont Awards is offering coupons to whomever brings a toy in.

The other isn't a charity as much as a great non profit whose purpose is to honor those Marines who served in Vietnam and also those who gave their lives for our freedom.

We are involved in the production of a Marines Monument that is being erected in Quantico Virginia.  They are continuing to raise funds and you can stop by Bux-Mont Awards to support that great cause as well.  We will be supporting you at the same time you choose to help someone and every donation made at Bux-Mont Awards will receive a little something from us!

Heres to the giving this holiday season.   Remember to shop local!

Charities, Non-Profits and their stake in the recognition industry

Charities are some of our best customers.  Many of the charities and non-profits understand, for whatever reason, that proper recognition is beneficial to the bottom line.  Maybe its the volunteer nature, maybe its because of the many good and worthwhile causes that these charities are supporting.  And whatever the reason, they use recognition awards, plaques and gifts to show their appreciation for many things.  Volunteering time, donating money, hosting a fundraiser, selling tickets, educating the public, all these things we help recognize and are very proud of it.

What is special to you?  What are you doing to recognize the efforts of those helping you help others?  What motivates you to help?  Please share your thoughts and stories in the comments.

Contact us at Bux-Mont Awards if you want to learn more about how properly recognizing achievements can help your non profit or charity to succeed!

Sellersville Winterfest

As the holidays rapidly approach, we just wanted to remind our customers to come visit our town on the first Tuesday in December for the annual Winterfest celebration and tree lighting.

The festivities start at 6:30 and include not only Bux-Mont Awards but also the Sellersville museum and tree lighting across from the fire house.  Santa will also be seeing kids at the fire house as well as local businesses staying open late with different offerings.

A personal favorite was the jazz music and the fire at the new Modern Male Barbershop in the odd fellows building pictured above in addition to the free showing of It's a Wonderful Life at the Sellersville Theater.

With a couple new businesses in town it should be a good year!

The biggest trophy we ever made

You have to see this thing to appreciate how big it really is.  I will take some pictures with us next to it and post it in a future picture.  This enduro racing series wanted a REALLY big trophy for their overall team points winner, and this is what we came up with.  It turned out really good - its a bear to handle and you are going to need a small truck to take it home.  This is in addition to all the other really big (but not quite that big) trophies they are doing.  

Soccer Season continued:

Here is a sneak peak of the trophies being given away at this years SISL'r Slam tournament.  We are thankful to the SIS'L organization for their continued commitment to properly recognizing their childrens achievements with trophies and recognition items from Bux-Mont Awards.  While we are running out of room in our new digs, we are happy to store them for all 700 of them for a day or two before sending them off into the wild!
Notice how this one trophy is bigger than three boxes worth of trophies to the right of it!

Soccer Season

You know soccer season is in full swing when the materials start arriving by the truckload at Bux-Mont Awards.  The month of November has brought a good amount of activity, and I like to think our industry is a leading indicator of economic activity!

While we have had to adjust to the unfortunate loss of one of the part time people here, who took a job in her field of study.  We are happy to say she found employment at a bakery in Doylestown and seems to be doing quite well.  This has led to a shortage of production labor which isn't being felt one bit thanks to the hard work and additional hours put in by Brian, our other part time employee.  Brian, Debbie, and Dan along with the owner Greg Bencsik comprise the entire Bux-Mont Awards team.  We work together to ensure that the area has access to a number of quality recognition products in one location.

That said we are also getting ready for the holidays, with a recent shipment of glassware coming in that we will be highlighting in future holiday posts.  Stay tuned!
