What Have We Done For You This Week?

This week, the Ohio Trucking Association held its annual TRUKPAC Party at the Schroyer Truck Museum in Celina, Ohio. The Schroyer Truck Museum was an idea of George Schroyer's, who spent his life promoting the trucking industry and worked to preserve its history. In the early 1980s, the Schroyers began their vast truck collection, which consists today of trucks built as early as 1915. The museum houses over 30 trucks, as well as transportation industry artifacts from the twentieth century. "We built this building in 2010," Dave Schroyer said of his museum. "Dad never saw it, but I'm sure he'd be proud of us."

The TRUKPAC event, which took place on November 14 from 4-8PM, had over 90 attendees. Funds raised from this event go to TRUKPAC, the political action committee of the Ohio Trucking Association. We would like to thank both our hosts and attendees for their contributions to ensuring that our industry's voice is heard. It is because of our members and their contributions that we can continue to support those who support the industry. Dean Kaplan, Chairman of the Association told attendees: "If you join an association at the state or national level, you join for advocacy, and trucking carries a strong voice." 

Thank you for celebrating our centennial with us; join us as we welcome our next 100 years with innovation.
