In 2018, we will build the 150,000th Walker Mower. Well over a year ago, we began to plan for the Walker Family Reunion III to celebrate this milestone on July 13 through 15, 2018. For all of you that attended Family Reunion I and II, I am thinking you have good memories of celebrating the 50,000th and 100,000th Walker. For those who have not attended, we think you would have a great time if you are able to come to Colorado this July.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Walker Announces Third Family Reunion
Walker Manufacturing Company, producers of the Walker Mower, have announced their third milestone production celebration for Friday through Sunday, July 13-15, 2018. The event will celebrate the production of Walker Mower #150,000 and will mark 40 years since the creation of the first Walker Mower.
“We are a company that likes to celebrate,” explains Walker President Bob Walker, “We believe taking time to recognize achievements both big and small helps keep a company healthy and reminds us of our blessings.”
The Walker Family Reunion will consist of a number of events including the Walker World Championship Obstacle Course, The Walker Advantage Driving Experience and Skills Challenge, factory tours, workshops, a family area, various bands and two nights of entertainment headlined by Josh Wilson and Doc Walker.
“This celebration is also a reminder of the profound opportunity we have to impact others,” explains Walker, “We see business as multiplication of opportunity; our factory team is only a small part of the overall impact of this product when you consider our suppliers, distributors, dealers and the customers we are blessed to work with.”

Mark your calendar for July 13 through 15, 2018, for the third Walker Family Reunion at the factory in Fort Collins, Colorado, to celebrate the production of the 150,000th Walker Mower. This event will draw Walker owners, operators, salespeople, suppliers and friends from around the world who will participate in a variety of events, and enjoy a great family-style weekend.
On August 1-2, 2008, Walker Manufacturing Company hosted the Walker Family Reunion 2 at its facility in Fort Collins, Colorado, to celebrate the production of the 100,000th Walker Mower. Approximately 2,300 guests from around the world were in attendance: guests from 37 states, Canada, 13 countries in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
"We came to the reunion because it sounded like a great idea and we wanted to see the factory," relates long-time Iowa Walker users Chuck and Dana Rosacker. "I put my business on blocks for two days to be here," adds Connecticut based Ed Cook. 'I wanted to show my support for the Walker family and wish them the best of luck in the coming years."
