A New Service Building
Anyone who has visited the dealerships in the last several months knows 2011 has been a year of great change for the Heritage dealerships. New and different heavy-duty construction vehicles are arriving on what seems like a daily basis in preparation for the start of construction on the new 32 bay, 35,000 square foot service department for Heritage Toyota Scion.  The new building will take the place of the longest standing building on our campus: the northernmost (and original) Toyota sales building. You can check out the artist’s renderings of the new building on our website. We’re also documenting the construction process on our Heritage Toyota Scion Facebook page.

Spreading the Christmas Cheer
Our staff is also getting in the Christmas spirit and spreading good cheer throughout the community.  Two departments in the dealership have adopted area families with the help of the Salvation Army; they’ve all pitched in and shopped till they dropped to give a great Christmas to families in need.

The Penguin Plunge
The fundraising and goodwill doesn’t stop with Christmas though.  You may have noticed brightly colored boxes filled with bottles around the dealerships if you’ve visited us recently.  We are collecting bottles and cans to raise money for the Special Olympics of Vermont’s Penguin Plunge, taking place in February at Lake Champlain.  For the second year in a row, Heritage will help sponsor the Plunge, as well as gather a group of hearty individuals to brave the chilly lake water as part of the event.  If you’re interested in donating, or even joining the H-Team at the event, stop by our First Giving Team page.

From all of us on the H-Team, we’d like to wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday season!
