Lancaster Honda donates new minivan to city

Lancaster Honda General Manager, Dave Clutter, shakes hands with councilmember Sandra Johnson, after presenting the city’s Parks and Recreation Department with a new minivan.

Lancaster Honda was recognized for the donation at Tuesday’s council meeting.

LANCASTER – City partner, Lancaster Honda has donated the new “Parks on the Go” minivan to Lancaster’s Parks, Recreation, and Arts Department.

“When the van that we had been using for the past ten plus years became no longer viable, we found ourselves in need of a vehicle dedicated to transporting special event program staff and supplies,” said Parks, Recreation and Arts Director Ronda Perez. “Rick [Clutter] promptly came to the rescue by providing the new minivan. We greatly appreciate this generous donation by Lancaster Honda.”

Lancaster Honda is the city’s first official “City Partner,” and has partnered with the city for more than four years.

Contributing to multiple programs and events, including the annual California Poppy Festival and Bark at the Park, Lancaster Honda is also the premier sponsor of the City’s Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix, to be held from September 14-16 this year.

“Lancaster Honda is one of our finest partners,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Along with donating a new vehicle to our Parks, Recreation and Arts Department, we are thrilled that they have chosen to sponsor such local programs and favorite events as our upcoming Grand Prix. It is wonderful to have partners which share our vision for growing Lancaster [into] an exciting, thriving destination.”
