for a preview of the calendar.
The first calendar
was published in 2004 thanks to the help from Pat from Altruk
vans in Connecticut. The idea was there for a while but to be
able to pull this off we needed to be able to print a good quality
calendar at a reasonable price. Thanks to Pat's connections in
the print industry we managed to get a great deal that would
allow us to print the calendar at a very reasonable price and
even make a profit that would in turn be put back into vanning.
This is a non profit project involving many vanners' contributions.
The profits from the calendar sales have been used to help finance
van and panel related websites like Showvans.com, Paneltruck.com
and Vannin.com. We've also been able to help out with events
across North America including the National Truck-In, the Council
of Councils and the CofC van shows. We also helped encourage
vanners to get out to the indoor car shows with the Vanarama
banners that were financed in part by the calendars. We've also
managed to contribute and start charitable donations like the
John Coldren American Cancer Society tribute.
