“Earth Day Dallas was a wonderful success for us, exceeding all expectations.” - Dr. Clay D. Hanks, Texas A&M Health Service Center (HSC).

! “One amusing highlight was a gentleman who gave our hybrid excavator a big hug because he just loves construction equipment. We gave him a limited edition "Hybrid" Cat cap to reciprocate. We knew there would be plenty of tree huggers present but honestly did not expect to encounter a real equipment hugger!” - Kathi Harris, HOLT CAT
