What happens when seven Ventrac tractors and a group of Ventrac salesmen are put together? It becomes an exciting and interesting time of safety and educational training, testing, demos and just plain hands-on fun with Ventrac tractors and attachments. The salespersons gathered together for their continuous training days to learn as much as possible how Ventrac tractors perform. The salesmen spent their training days running the tractors through the paces and tested them to limits that wouldn’t normally be done on a day to day basis. The information and experience gained will serve as a valuable tool to assist customers with finding the right piece of equipment that will meet their individual needs.
The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri is located near the starting point of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The park was established to commemorate several historical events and is maintained by the National Park Service. With its beautiful pristine lawns sloping down towards the Mississippi River, this 91 acre memorial park sits on the site of the original city of St. Louis and consists of the Old Courthouse; the Museum of Westward Expansion and probably the most well known icon of the city, The Gateway Arch. The Gateway Arch towers over the city of St. Louis as a reflective symbol of the western expansion of the country during the nineteenth century. Standing at 630 feet, this stainless steel structure is a marvel of modern engineering.

They met with Jim Jacobs, Gardener Supervisor, and his crew, to catch a glimpse of just how they keep the park in its amazing state all year round.
