We love when we receive a phone call from someone who wants to share a positive story about our employees. This week, Cydney Mulieri from Silver Spring called to share how she has been watching her young grandson and taking him to visit our Hampstead Streetscape Project.
She said her grandson, Matteo, knows the names of all the trucks and loves watching our employees work.
“I want to commend those workers for being so kind and so generous with their time,” she said, noting that they have given little Matteo a toy bulldozer, a hardhat and a CJ Miller Dump Truck. “I just wanted somebody to know that you should be proud of the workers. You know, not too many people today go out of their way to be so kind.”
We are thankful to Cydney for taking the time out of her day to call us, and so grateful to have employees like Site Superintendent Jake Orndorff; Foreman Jack Nelson; and HMA Field Technician Dwight Gladhill as well as others, who extend their kindness to young children who are so enthusiastic about our industry. Building America’s Infrastructure makes a difference in the community, and we are proud that our employees patiently share their enthusiasm for that work with the youngest members of the community.
Back in December, CJ Miller Excavator Operator John Decker spotted a senior woman attempting to cross the street where CJ Miller is working on the Hampstead Streetscape Project. It was raining, and John was quick to come to the woman’s aid in helping her navigate the construction zone.
“I always want to help,” said John, who, also dropped off a letter at the post office for the woman. “It feels good to help someone out.”
Unbeknownst to John at the time, Hampstead resident Kristen spotted the random act of kindness and quickly snapped a picture, which she shared on the Hampstead, MD Facebook page.
Many people liked and commented on the photo, including one woman who said John should be commended for his good deed.
We agree, and today our Utilities Superintendent Donnie Reed was on hand at Streetscape to present John with a special safety sticker he can place on his hardhat, and to offer donuts and coffee to everyone on his crew.
Thank you, John, for your chivalry, and we are certainly happy to have you as an employee!
In 1978, Jimmy Carter was the American President. Minimum wage was $2.65. The top song was “Night Fever,” by the Bee Gees. 1978 was also the same year this particular Mack Super-liner that CJ Miller recently purchased from the Midwest, was built. First introduced by Mack Trucks in 1977, the Super-liner is a heavy duty truck that remained in production until it was discontinued in 1989. CJM will showcase the Super-liner at area events. While adding this piece of history to our company, we thought we would take a look back at some of the vehicles we did have in operation 40 years ago.
