Employees of Plant City based aluminum bleacher manufacturer lend a helping hand to American Veterans

GT Grandstand Employees Build A Stage for AMVET Post 26

This is exactly what we were looking for and what we need.

Employees of GT Grandstands, a leading manufacturer of aluminum seating accommodations, came together last Saturday to volunteer time to American Veterans at AMVET Post 26 Valrico in Dover, FL. The team of employees and their families worked and completed a new outdoor stage for the Post.

The new stage will be used for upcoming events and gatherings at Post 26. The new structure is 400 square feet in size and features mud sills, a 2 foot elevation, and helical earth anchors for stability. Post Commander Lanny Boothe said, “I can’t thank GT Grandstands enough for the time and effort into this. We will use this outdoor stage for many events throughout the year. The old stage was falling apart and had to be taken down. This is exactly what we were looking for and what we need. We are very grateful.” AMVET Post 26 will hold a grand opening dedication ceremony for the outdoor stage on Saturday April 30 at 1pm.
