Community support is one of our corporate values and a big part of the culture of Solomon Corporation involves giving back. The company contributes financially to a variety of organizations, but it also encourages employees to give their time and talent.

Volunteer organizer and marketing manager Cindy Curry said, “By sponsoring volunteer activities throughout the year, our team members have an opportunity to serve the community as well as spend time with one another outside of work.”

The employees dedicate their time to several organizations and projects on an ongoing basis throughout the year, and two of the biggest events occur within the next couple of weeks. June promises to be a busy month for us.

Solomon Festival Pancake Feed

This year marks the Solomon, Kansas sesquicentennial, 150 years! Many of our employees are involved in organizing the Solomon Festival, which takes place June 3-5, 2016. Events include a parade, color run, horseshoe tournament, baby beauty contest, soap box derby race and live music. We enjoy the opportunity to connect with our friends and neighbors and celebrate what it means to be part of the Solomon community.

On Saturday, June 4, our employees will be providing a pancake breakfast to everyone who comes out to Solomon Park. The breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, orange juice and coffee. We will be serving (hours), so we hope you stop by and say hello. Come hungry!

Smoky Hill River Festival

Solomon Corporation is a sponsor of the Smoky Hill River Festival, which takes place June 9-12 at Oakdale Park in Salina, Kansas. Every year, the festival celebrates the arts in a family-friendly, carnival atmosphere, which includes events, food, games, art and music.

Volunteers from Solomon Corporation will be operating a game during the weekend. Proceeds will benefit The Fallen Lineman Organization. Their mission is to memorialize fallen electrical line workers, and care for the families who have lost or whose lives are impacted by a severe injury of a loved one in the line of duty.
