Volunteers Take on Landscaping Project at Van Buren Middle School

Larry H. Miller Dealerships employees choose school for annual Day of Service.

Larry H. Miller Group employees planted bushes at Van Buren Middle School during its Day of Service.

The courtyard at Van Buren Middle School sports a fresh look after volunteers converged on the grounds for a beautification project.

About 35 employees from the five local Larry H. Miller auto dealerships participated in the landscaping project, planting trees and bushes, spreading gravel and setting up planter boxes. Michelle Aragon, the company’s local customer retention marketing manager, said the Day of Service is an annual event. It is always scheduled for April 26, which is the anniversary of the late Miller’s birth.

“(Miller) always said, ‘Go about doing good until there is too much good in the world’,” Aragon said.

“The Larry H. Miller Group wants to support the communities it does business in,” Aragon added. “There’s just something about putting back into the community, like to help support school systems and other organizations that educate children.”
