Future Downtown Plaza Brings Light to the City of Salisbury  

Salisbury Maryland is a small city located on the Eastern Shore and most widely known for its award-winning university and close proximity to the beach. For many years now local officials have been working tirelessly to build this city to its full potential and make it an exciting and homey location for citizens to grow their families and bring new businesses to the Delmarva Peninsula. 

The evolution of this small city has been extensive by implementing the well-known Third Friday event where once a month local vendors and artisans set up booths with trinkets and treats for sale. There is often live music, food trucks and entertainment the whole family can enjoy. Salisbury has also hosted the National Folk Festival for the past two years bringing music lovers from all over the nation to the small city. 

The next step in the bettering the area is creating a newly renovated downtown plaza in the heart of Downtown Salisbury. The project will essentially be giving a facelift to the city with new sidewalks, streetlamps, and landscaping as well as allowing local businesses and residents to run high-speed internet lines.

Though the finished product is to be a beautiful new downtown area, the lengthy construction has caused problems for local business owners, some of which have decided to relocate their businesses in order to avoid the hassle of dealing with the construction.

Other local businesses, however, are please and very much excited about all the changes coming to the area. Nicole Rogers, manager of Angello’s Scoops located on E Main Street, thinks the city has great potential and looks forward to the changes that will make downtown a family destination. “It’s difficult to deal with right now but the end result is a newer, better city to raise our families and grow our business in. Who wouldn’t want that?”

Rogers and the rest of the Angello’s team are excited for all the changes coming to the area and look forward to the conclusion of the construction which is expected to end in late 2020. 

Pohanka Employees Become 8th Grade Mentors at JA Inspire

Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive Group was a proud sponsor of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore‘s latest event JA Inspire.

This massive event involved a collection of local educators and industry leaders coming together to educate over 3,000 Eastern Shore 8th graders on potential future career and educational opportunities. The students were given hands-on activities involving tasks relevant to jobs in many different industries. This gave them a chance to find a potential future career path involving a specialty they love. The fair also gave students the ability to explore apprenticeships and educational programs from local trade schools, colleges, and universities. 

The purpose of this event is to provide students with knowledge of future career paths before determining their high school workload. They get the opportunity to learn about future career opportunities from local, caring mentors who are there to help guide them. It is also a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to build their workforce and offer interactive learning. 

Pohanka of Salisbury was widely represented at this event offering mentors from their sales, service, and insurance departments. The Pohanka staff had the opportunity to discuss all of the opportunities that come with a career at Pohanka as well as how much the automotive group gives back to their community through the Pohanka Pays It Forward Program. 

Katelyn Williamson, a Customer Service Representative at Pohanka Insurance and volunteer at JA Inspire noted, “It was a pleasure talking to the children about what I do and how I got here. I wish I would have known about companies like Pohanka when I was deciding what I wanted to do. I hope that I was able to make a difference in the children’s career options.”

Pohanka truly enjoys partnering and volunteering for Junior Achievement and would like to thank them for all they do in the community. As a group, Pohanka employees look forward to attending more events in the future to educate the local youth and build the workforce on the Eastern Shore. 

 

 

 

A Truck Load of Caring 

This holiday season the Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive Group made it their mission to fill the back of a pickup truck with canned food items to donate to locals in need. Their food drive was open to the public and anyone who contributed received $10 off their next service at one of the Pohanka Service Departments

By the end of the food drive, the Pohanka stores collected over 300 cans of food as well as a large selection of bread, rice, and pasta to donate to HALO Ministries, a local organization who offers meals and social activities to those in need. 

“We really appreciate this,” says Logan Schevel, Halo’s Thrift Ministry Administrator. “We are extremely busy this time of year and we will make great use of the donations.” 

Logan and the rest of the Halo staff and volunteers were grateful for the donations. They will be serving a special Thanksgiving dinner for which the donated food will be served. 

Pohanka of Salisbury has made serving the community a prime goal of their organization since establishing the Pohanka Pays It Forward initiative in 2009. Since its founding, Pohanka of Salisbury has donated over $3,000,000.00 to more than 750 charitable organizations.
