The Toro Co., along with its longtime distributor partner, Turf Equipment and Supply Company, based in Jessup, Md., will provide a fleet of Toro stand-on aerators and volunteers to help beautify the cemetery grounds during the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) event, Renewal and Remembrance.

The annual event—which will celebrate its 22nd year on July 16—brings together volunteers for a day of lawn care, tree care and landscape and irrigation projects at Arlington National Cemetery.

“It’s an honor to be a part of this process each year,” said Mike Reynolds, territory manager for Turf Equipment and Supply Co. “Our team is proud to volunteer its services on this special day to honor the men and women who have given so much for our country. Just being at Arlington Cemetery is a very awe-inspiring experience.”

The compact 30-inch Toro stand-on aerators being provided for the event are designed for high productivity and offer zero-turn maneuverability, variable speed and reversible traction drive.

In addition, Toro’s newest line of stand-on aerators will make an appearance at the event for the first time. The new 24-inch stand-on aerators are both simple to operate and extremely efficient. They’re compatible with Toro’s all-new spreader attachment, so operators can pull plugs and overseed on a single machine.

“We believe our support for this event is just one small way we can help memorialize those who made the ultimate sacrifice–and hopefully bring some solace and comfort to the families and friends who are visiting their loved ones at Arlington National Cemetery,” said Chris Vogtman, marketing manager at Toro. “On behalf of everyone at Toro, we’re humbled by the opportunity to honor the service men and women who have served our country.”

NALP will hold the Renewal and Remembrance annual volunteer service event in conjunction with its annual advocacy event, Legislative Days on the Hill, on July 15-17, in Washington, D.C., and northern Virginia.
