DAN COYRO — SANTA CRUZ SENTINEL
On Sunday August 28th Videographer Peter McGiddeon called Tom and asked if he would say a few words on video for the Santa Cruz time capsule that was to be buried for Santa Cruz’s 150th Birthday and unearthed in 50 years.
Tom said “sure” and was among other interviewees including George Ow Jr., his son William Ow, former Senator Bruce McPherson, The Great Morgani and the owners of Hoffman’s Restaurant.
As part of the production, they were going to make dry martini’s that are famous at Hoffman’s to toast with. Tom expressed that he hasn’t had a drink since for almost 29 years so could they please use water in his martini glass instead of Gin.
In the video, Tom spoke about how grateful he is to be a Santa Cruzan, and how incredible it was that he has been asked to do so many milestone projects around Santa Cruz. He was asked about the picture used at the Gail Rich Awards and also on his first CD cover showing Tom half in concrete and half in a black tuxedo. Tom also said hello to his children (daughter Rachelle, sons Matt, Zach and Anthony; and Grandchildren Kailey and Tytus) and then said “let’s toast.”
TRC wins three awards at the 2016 World of Concrete two for the Santa Cruz Roundabout’s Best Video and Best Specialty Project, and also for the Aruba Project which won Best Cast-In-Place.
Tom Ralston Concrete is tingling with excitement and would like to share the honor of being on the cover of this month’s Concrete Décor Magazine. A decorative concrete company getting on the cover of Concrete Décor Magazine is like a Rock Band getting on the cover of The Rolling Stone! The Concrete Décor Cover shot is taken from our Aruba project which also won a first place national award for Best Cast in Place concrete and In addition the magazine writes about TRC winning a total of 3-first place national awards in Las Vegas this year.
Check out the Concrete Decor Magazine April 2016 for a truly honoring article about the winning projects done by the TRC Team.
