We Thank Those Who Have Served

Veterans, A&K Painting Company Thanks You   A&K Painting Company Inc. Copyright 2014  All rights reserved.We say thank you for your service.

On the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the First World War ended on what was commemorated as Armistice Day dedicated to world peace. While the observance of Armistice day in other countries in more closely matched to our Memorial Day in May, the United States continued to celebrate Armistice Day until it was given its new name in 1945 at the end of the Korean War.

Veterans Day is observed as a day to honor all veterans.  We remember and thank all those who served and all those who currently serve our country.

Take every opportunity to say thank you to our veterans and those currently serving. When you see an old timer and younger adult wearing a Veteran cap from his or her military branch, stop and say “thank you for your service.” When you see active duty military man or woman, make sure to say “thank you for your service.”

A Very Special Operation Pink for 2014

A&K Painting Company 2014 Operation Pink Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness

The A&K Painting Company Team works to help spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness with our Operation Pink 2014. In doing our part to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, again this year, the A&K Painting Team are on projects wearing pink A&K logo shirts that stick out on our job sites. Our company vehicles are again sporting large pink ribbons. This year, 45 jumbo sized pink ribbons adorn our work vans and trucks along with other company and personal vehicles all to help identify BC Awareness.

This year Operation Pink takes on a very special meaning at A&K with our Director of Repaint Division, Amanda Hibberts, becoming a Breast Cancer Survivor. Amanda, pictured above being cheered on by A&K Team Members, has been very busy this month, with speaking engagements, a television interview and other promotional events, all to promote Breast Cancer Awareness.  The A&K Team is very proud of Amanda and celebrates her leadership and determination to share her message of hope, survival and strength.  Please consider supporting the work of the American Cancer Society and their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks in your community. Thank you!
