A group of employees from fred, a home repair service, participated in the Potomac Day events in Potomac, Maryland on Saturday, October 22, 2011. An ice cream truck wrapped in fred banners that said, "Follow fred - the first name in home repairs - to get your FREE ICE CREAM" followed the fred employees in the parade. The ice cream truck parked close to the fred booth at the business fair and the fred employees gave away 250 free ice cream confections to the people in the community.

While the folks were enjoying their ice cream, the fred employees at the booth were busy sharing information with the people interested in learning more about all the services provided by the company.
