A&E Construction Out & About in Pennington

We had a wonderful time at Pennington Day this past Saturday and got to meet so many local Pennington and Hopewell residents as well as fellow vendors at the event.

In addition to Pennington Day, we had an eventful couple of weeks as owner Greg Fontaine lent his talents to Pennington's "Busy Town" parade and gave a presentation to graduating 8th graders for Career Day at Timberlane Middle School.

Pennington's "Busy Town" event is based on Richard Scarry's beloved books that introduce children to the people and shops that make up a community.

A&E Owner Greg Fontaine played the part of Mike Mulligan, a steam shovel operator to a tea! 

Organized by Cindy Persichilli, Pennington Library's Children Program Coordinator, this event was a huge success as local merchants and community members played the role of bankers, firefighters, restaurant owners, and construction workers, reading from Scarry's book for the Tollgate kindergartners and Pennington Presbyterian Nursery School children.
