Who doesn’t love a nice & heart-warming story on a Friday?!

Gary Schoch, a Reston resident and long-time customer of Koons Tysons Toyota, couldn’t believe his luck when he received a call from Toyota’s corporate office.  Like thousands of other customers, Gary had submitted his name in a drawing box while servicing his 2002 Toyota Prius at Koons Tysons Toyota in May.  A month later, he received the call that would change his life forever.  He’s now the proud owner of a brand new 2013 Toyota Prius C, compliments of Toyota!!

In an interview with Toyota executives, Gary was extremely enthusiastic about the service he receives at Koons Tysons Toyota — especially from his service advisor, Frank Lewis.  At the award ceremony, the dealership’s General Manager, Jack Ballinghoff, told the crowd:

“This win could not have happened to a nicer guy!  Gary’s been a wonderful customer at our service center, and we look forward to helping maintain his new hybrid!”

Congratulations, Gary, for a win that is richly deserved!!

Happy Memorial Day from Koons Automotive!

Today, we reflect upon all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend the freedom of our great country. This weekend we celebrate the lives of these individuals through the observance of Memorial Day.

A quick history lesson – Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day, a day of remembrance of those who have died in our nation’s service. Memorial Day was first observed on May 30, 1868, where flowers were laid at the graves of Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.

As fellow Americans, let’s unite during this most sacred of holidays to honor those who have allowed us to enjoy our freedom and diversity. Whether you attend a parade to honor military personnel, or visit Arlington National Cemetery to say “thank you,” or simply observe a moment of silence, it is important to always remember that freedom isn’t “free” – and it is this price that we honor on this holiday.

If you’d like to learn more about the history of the holiday, there are many great resources out there, such as Wikipedia or a great column about Memorial Day history.

Have a wonderful Holiday!
