In October of 2008 Capital Cares are presented with a Circle of Courage award for Belonging from Rosemont Community School.
At an assembly at Rosemont School the children presented Capital Cares with a song.
You are our partners, educational partners,
We thank you Kristen, Gregg, Nicole, Stacey, Cam.
You were so eager and enthusiastic,
You made plan and boy were they grand.
There was the BBQ back in October,
On our front awn, burgers you did cook,
Right in the back of, a half ton truck,
Every one had to take a second look.
Remember Hats On, for the United Way,
And the class that raised the most money then,
Won special cookies; with our Roadrunner logo.
They were great from the first bite to end.
Grade one and three class, went on a bus trip,
To Sherwood Library they all did go,
To watch a puppet show that was enjoyed.
We say thanks and want you to know.
There was the contest, a Lincoln car contest,
Design a Lincoln that you think is cool.
The winning designs were put in Saturday’s paper,
And they hung, poster-sized in our school.
You supplied volunteers for Christmas crafts,
Santa Store donations of toys and much more,
There was a dinner made by the Delta,
It was paid and served by you for sure.
You then collected, clothes to give away,
And organized an Appreciation Lunch,
You supervised all of the lunchrooms,
So staff had time to munch and munch.
Cam came and spent time with grade 7 and 8,
Telling them all about advertising that’s true,
They had a project, an advertising project,
Just to catch the eye of me and you.
It is March now and the Pats hockey,
When 40 people to a Pat’s game went,
Thanks for the tickets and transportation,
You don’t know just how much that meant.
From grade 7 and 8’s, four students were chosen,
To visit Rawlco Radio with Cam,
They for to see, how to be a DJ,
And guess what, they’re now all Rawlco fans.
There is Capital Ford and Capital Pontiac
Universal Collision and McKenzie Sales,
Let is not forget Thrifty Car Rentals,
All together, we call you Capital Cares.
You joined our community, our Rosemont community,
And made a difference in so many ways,
We’re looking forward to many years together.
We’re a team, three cheers to you we say….
Three cheers for Capital Cares!
Hip hip hooray!
Hip hip hooray!
Hip hip hooray!
Nelly has collaborated with Ford’s design team and DUB’s customization team to make his very own tricked-out Mustang GT which will appear on the front cover of his album’s artwork; it is set to be released in March 30, 2010.
“Nelly is a true car guy, there’s no denying that. When Nelly expressed interest in wanting to partner with Ford on the all-new 2011 Ford Mustang GT, we knew it was a perfect fit. The Mustang has such appeal within the urban market. Since it was launched, the vehicle has made appearances in several of the most popular urban films. This was just a great opportunity for Ford, and we’re excited that the Mustang GT is going to be a part of one of the most anticipated albums of 2010.” – Crystal Worthem, Ford’s Multicultural Marketing Communications Manager.

Helen Keller once said most people die with their music still locked inside of them and that we all have our hand on the music dial of life, and if the number was 1 to 10 why would you ever turn your volume down…why put it at 7 if 10 was available? Level 10 is a phrase that you hear around the dealerships daily, something people strive for and truly believe in. Level 10 comes with a creed, an expectation, and an understanding that no matter what the circumstances you will bring your best everyday, every time, without fail, no exceptions.

Capital Cares is an initiative to improve the work place and the community. That is formed by the employees of Capital Pontiac Buick Cadillac GMC, Capital Ford Lincoln, Universal Collision Centre, McKenzie Sales and Leasing and Thrifty Car and Truck Rental (Regina and Saskatoon), for the employees. The committee’s goal is to enhance the presence of team work between the employees of the different stores. The five main goals are to improve employee’s satisfaction, community involvement/charity work, communication improvement, unity among stores, and to enhance lives within the team of the Capital Automotive Group.
In 2008 Capital Cares developed a business relationship with Rosemont Community School in Regina. We wanted to create and sustain a direct, ongoing and mutually beneficial partnership with a school with hopes that by focusing on one community that we would make a bigger impact.
Our overall goal is to provide additional resources, experiences and opportunities for the students, parents and community. In forming our relationship we wish to present the children with direction toward future education and professional development; and overall enhancing the student experience. In helping Rosemont School we anticipate it will help us achieve our Capital Cares Committee goal of becoming more involved with the community, and developing a stronger bond among the Capital Automotive Group employees.
Capital Cares is thrilled to continue planning and organizing events for our partnership and was proud when we received the formal announcement from the Regina Public School Board that our partnership had been accepted.
