Jimmy Senica of Senica’s Towing (left) releases cable as Zach Mennie of Mennie’s Machine (right) carefully eases a forklift off the flatbed recently at Illinois Valley Community College. Assisting with the project are Mennie’s employees Jeff Edgcomb (second from left) and Neil Buffington. Mennie’s is moving, free of charge, manufacturing equipment from IVCC’s east campus into the new Peter Miller Community Technology Center. Senica’s volunteered to transport two Mennie’s forklifts from Mennie’s Route 71 plant to IVCC. “Mennie’s and Senica’s are outstanding, community-minded partners whose generosity will save IVCC thousands in moving expenses,” said IVCC President Jerry Corcoran. “During this joyous season, they both exemplify the true spirit of giving.”
