Toro continues support for annual Renewal and Remembrance event

Toro will once again proudly support the annual Renewal and Remembrance landscaping event Monday, July 17, 2017, at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Toro, along with its longtime distributor partner, Turf Equipment and Supply Company based in Jessup, Md., will provide Toro stand-on aerators and volunteers to help restore the cemetery grounds. This year marks the 21st annual Renewal and Remembrance event. The day of service is managed by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).

“We are proud and humbled to support such an important event,” said Chris Hannan, senior marketing manager at Toro. “Helping to ensure the beauty and significance of Arlington National Cemetery is a small way of giving back, and we’re honored to be a part of this special day.”

Toro’s 30-inch stand-on aerators are designed for high productivity and are compact enough to go almost anywhere. With zero-turn maneuverability, variable speed, and reversible traction drive, they can easily get into and out of tight areas, making them ideal for this large restoration task. Their floating operator platform isolates the operator from vibrations for an exceptionally smooth ride – particularly important when covering a national landmark the size of Arlington.

NALP is an international association serving lawn care professionals, landscape management, design/build/installation professionals, irrigation and water management professionals, and interior plantscapers. The Renewal and Remembrance landscaping event is the largest green industry day of service in the country, drawing hundreds of industry professionals each year to Arlington National Cemetery to renew its 200 acres.
