On Saturday April 18th, Wilbert’s U-Pull It celebrated its grand opening with over 800 people from our community. The day began early at 7am as our employees and volunteers gathered to prepare for the festivities. Our facility was blessed by Father Tim Horan from Holy Trinity parish before a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Williamson Chamber of Commerce. After the ceremony, we were officially ready to celebrate in the beautiful, sunny Spring weather.
Big Dog Country 103.5 kicked off the day as we began playing games like spin-the-wheel for prizes and giving out our Wilbert’s U-Pull It Grand Opening t-shirts to the first 200 guests. After going on a tour of our brand new 11,000 square ft. facility and admiring the state-of-the-art lifts used in our vehicle processing, guests were able to gather outside for photo ops with race cars and a monster truck while we prepared to serve lunch. WBEE 92.5 came out to DJ throughout the rest of the day as everyone enjoyed burgers, hot dogs, pizza, cookies and soft drinks. The East Williamson Fire Dept performed a “Jaws of Life” demonstration to show our guests how they physically take apart a vehicle to save lives. All lot entrance fees were donated to the East Williamson and Williamson Fire Departments, totaling $1,000.
All in all, the day was a complete success. We could not have asked for better weather, volunteers, and guests to celebrate this very special day with us.
