Diamond Rental–and specially Randy Rutherford–have been so important to have enough chairs for the 2017 and 2018 Story Crossroads Festivals. Then came an urgent need to be solved in a few days. We had microphones and amplifiers reserved though another organization and found out a couple days before the Festival that they would no longer be available. I scrambled to figure out options and thought of who of my friends had their own microphones. Luckily, we already were counting on the sound equipment of the ever-generous Annie and Dan Eastmond. Finally, I called Randy at Diamond Rental. “We are certainly glad you are providing those 100 extra chairs for free…any chance we can get four microphones and two amplifiers next week?”
Randy had to call around to see if the equipment was available in such a short amount of time. He called back and said that almost all was covered. He was short two microphone stands. Thankfully, Parkside Elementary next to the Murray City Park offered two of their microphone stands and our sound crisis was averted.
I told Randy that I felt bad that the programs were already printed because that jumped up the in-kind donation to another level. I promised we would place Diamond Rental up for the 2019 Festival. Luckily, we can also celebrate here through this blog.
Diamond Rental’s motto is “What you need when you need it.” Here Randy helped us out exactly when we needed it.

You can also see a video explaining services and equipment here plus I discovered this video clip of a story of a different situation from Paul who had to solve something quick and received help from Diamond Rental.
So toss, tip, or take off your cap to Diamond Rental (Randy Rutherford)!
We also have year-round events such as the monthly house concerts and the 4th Annual Story Crossroads Festival that will be on May 15, 2019.
