Hall of Fame ReunionOct 19th, 2012 | By ctitchenal | Category: Spotlight
The industry held its first International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame Reunion recently at the International Towing and Recovery Museum in conjunction with the Tennessee Tow Show. Miller Industries generously sponsored the event, which attracted over 150 industry leaders and guests. The Reunion, hosted by Tow Times President Dave Jones (HOF Class of 1986) and Jerry Holmes (HOF Class of 1987), raised close to $35,000 in contributions and pledges for the museum.
“Seeing so many old friends reminded me of why I committed my professional career to bettering the towing industry,” said Dave Jones. “A lot of us may be older, but the years fade away when you’re laughing and sharing stories with people, many of whom you’ve known most of your life.
“The generosity of my fellow HOF members and other industry leaders brought tears to my eyes,” Jones said. “Left me at a loss for words — which many people found amazing in and of itself.”
