Wabash Valley Contractors Association rings in the new year with local partnerships and projects
The Wabash Valley Contractors Association’s New Year was met with an energized excitement and anticipation for 2020 while the end of 2019 was closed with the same matched energy. In December, Wabash Valley Contractors Association (WVCA) hosted their annual Christmas dinner where over 300 people gathered to reflect on the year and anticipate the coming projects and partnerships of 2020.
At the dinner, WVCA announced their partnership with the Terre Haute Children’s Museum for the Under Construction Exhibit. The exhibit will provide kids of all ages learning opportunities on how buildings are built, careers in construction and how to use the tools needed on the job site.
“Our collaboration with the Children’s Museum is an opportunity to introduce the trade union industry to kids. It also provides hands-on learning using equipment and tools that they will see throughout the community with the many projects set to take off in the coming year,” states WVCA President, Bill Hann.
The Under Construction Exhibit will be located on the third floor of the Terre Haute Children’s Museum while providing a unique view for the coming construction site for the new Terre Haute Convention Center.
“The support from the Wabash Valley Contractors Association has been instrumental in making this exhibit a reality,” states Terre Haute Children’s Museum Executive Director, Susan Turner. “We are on the cusp of a building boom in Terre Haute so having the opportunity to open this exhibit right now is wonderful. This exhibit will help the museum offer an incredible learning experience for children and families.”
The exhibit is scheduled to open on January 24.
