Tuesday, December 12, 2017 was an exciting day for Van Horn Automotive Group- we held our grand opening celebration for our first out of state location in Newhall, Iowa!
We celebrated with a performance by Jazz band, Eddie Piccard, Lifetime Achievement Award presentations, a ribbon cutting ceremony, public open house, and giveaways from Hyvee, Cit Drel Supper Club, First Stop, and numerous Van Horn prize packs. Scott Saville, sports talk show host from KCRG, was our MC for the night. The event was catered by Hyvee, who provided two separate delicious food stations as well as an ice cream bar!
During the ceremony, Bill Grovert was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by Newhall Council Member, Bill Much. Steve Schallau also received this same honor presented by Van Horne Mayor, Martin Junge. Both of these awards were given to honor Mr. Grovert and Mr. Schallau’s work in the local automotive industry. Steve Schallau proudly presented Van Horn President, Dick Strong with a Ford clock that was displayed in the original Newhall Ford dealership. Teresa Van Horn presented a $2,000 check to the Benton Scholarship Fund.
Van Horn Ford Chevrolet of Newhall welcomed over 200 guests to our celebration. Van Horn Automotive Group is looking forward to our future in the Benton County community.
