Ceremony AV for 9/11 Memorial in Clemmons, NC

Posted on September 15, 2015

Ceremony AV

Sometimes the smallest events have the greatest impact on us, as was the case with our ceremony AV work for the Clemmons, NC September 11th Memorial. We were, of course, humbled and moved to be asked to join in this event and provide audiovisual support to the speakers. We were even more moved to witness this powerful display of our nation's beautiful flag atop the Clemmon's Fire Department tower ladder.

The events of September 11, 2001 across our nation are without a doubt, the most tragic and memorable events of our modern era. We judge ourselves, in our day to day work, against a standard of excellence. On a day such as this, when called to broadcast a message of memory, agony, and the intrepid determination to rise from ashes as a country, we naturally stop to ask ourselves if there is a greater standard to offer than just excellence. The sacrifice of all the lives taken on September 11, 2001 and all those lost avenging them, is so great and extreme, the little we have to give hardly seems enough.

But it does indeed matter that communities large and small gather and bow heads, and it does matter than in all our hearts we desperately wish with unreasonable fervor, that we could turn back time. That we could undo on behalf of every life lost, every child left behind, every parent who lost a son or daughter. In our powerlessness is promise: We promise to remember, we promise not to forget, we promise to teach our children. All of us at AV Connections - among us a New Yorker whose hometown was devastated by the events of that day - will never fail to keep the promise and broadcast the message. You are not forgotten, we've not lost you in vain.

Krispy Kreme Corporation continues to me a major supporter of local charities, the Salvation Army among them.

Tony Thompson joined Krispy Kreme Corporation after distinguishing himself in the management teams of Papa Johns, Scotts, Con Agra, and Coca-Cola Bottling Company. Winston-Salem was pleased to welcome him to Krispy Kreme, a heritage local corporate business of resounding success.

AV rentals for seminars


AV Connections, Inc. provides AV rentals for seminars and conferences throughout the Southeastern United States. Recently, we were pleased to work with the University of North Carolina and Clerks of the Superior Court to provide audiovisual support for their twice-yearly seminar gathering. This series of continuing legal education, outreach training, and case law updates is provided for attorneys in order to keep their Bar credentials current.

Attending several days of a conference seminar such as this can allow the legal professional to accrue all their necessary continuing education hours in one place at one time. Hawthorne Inn, in Winston-Salem, NC which hosted this summer session, was a perfect conference location to allow for multiple presentations.

During the three day period in which we provided audiovisual rentals, we provided a mixer to patch several wireless lavaliers, handheld mics, and laptop sound into the Hawthorn Inn's house sound system. It was a a productive three days for the members of the Bar in Western North Carolina and AV Connections, Inc. was pleased to be a partner in this summer seminar series.

Rental audio visual solutions

AV Connections, Inc. was happy to provide a professional rental audio visual solution for another business also headquartered in Winston Salem, NC for their Summer marketing campaign launch event. Krispy Kreme has called Winston Salem home since 1937, and their corporate office looked to AV Connections to make sure their entire workforce would be heard loud and clear as they gathered in their auditorium space.

Krispy Kreme University, where this meeting was held, is a conference and training center on the Krispy Kreme campus in Winston-Salem, NC. A center for corporate excellence, it is a daily location for various trainings. On this particular day, a larger group was expected and consequently our large AV set up was needed to be sure the message was effectively communicated to all participants.

We provided a modular system which allowed us to go row by row, seat by seat to make sure the program experience was heard equally well by everyone in the room. Afterwards, a company representative pulled our audio technician aside asking about the details for installing this type of system permanently in their meeting space. We’re absolutely thrilled to hear our services made such a good impression that they’ve decided to implement our system design permanently!
