Mechanics rev up support for Sequim Irrigation Festival
With the help of two mechanics, Sequim Irrigation Festival’s royalty is about to hit the festival circuit again.
Tom and June Calonder of T&J Machine Shop donated services to rebuild the festival’s float trailer 1992 Chevy one-ton truck’s engine, totaling about $5,500 in in-kind services.
Marv Fowler, owner of Sequim Auto Clinic, who does ongoing maintenance on the truck, referred the festival to the Calonders. Tom Calonder said he wanted to help the community in any way he could.
“This is truly one of my favorite parts of being part of such a great team and community is people like that that are willing do what they can to help in their own way,” said Deon Kapetan, Irrigation Festival executive director.
The float and royalty will travel to 12 more parades through the summer thanks to the donation.
