Prominent local construction and restoration company staff gets in costume to surprise preschoolers

Stuart, FL – Venture Construction Group of Florida held Minion Day at The YMCA Of The Treasure Coast on Jan.12th at the Stuart branch located at 1700 SE Monterey Road. The company held Minion Day after finding out that the children thought their construction crews were Minions, seeing the Minion themed construction signs throughout the facility. After finding out about their newfound celebrity status, the Venture Construction Group of Florida staff and crews surprised the kids by dressing up as the Minions characters from the popular movie, Despicable Me. YMCA pre-schoolers received construction vests and stickers and took fun photos with the Venture Construction Group Minion Crew.

“The Venture Construction Group team really got into the spirit of things when they found out the kids in our preschool got the idea that Minions were fixing the roof,” says John Lass, CEO of YMCA Of Treasure Coast.

Venture Construction Group of Florida began roof replacement work on the YMCA Of The Treasure Coast Stuart location on Monterey Road last week. Venture crews will begin roof repair at the YMCA Sportsworld location located at 2700 Willoughby Blvd next week. Extensive damages were due to the hailstorm in Martin County on April 27, 2015.

“Our staff and crews had a blast dressing up as Minions for the children, and the smiles on their faces were priceless,” says Steve Shanton, founder and president of Venture Construction Group of Florida.
