This is the time of the year that we pause to give thanks. We give thanks to our employees, to our customers, to our suppliers, and to the communities where we do business.
On Tuesday, we paused to say Thank You to all of our employees. We shut down our facilities for a few hours, so we could get everyone together for a Christmas lunch. We had all the employees from all the facilities and shifts join us for lunch at the Staples Plant. We cleared
out the warehouse and set up tables and chairs. We had a full prime rib dinner catered By Divine Swine from Lakeville, MN. It was a wonderful time of sharing and thanks.
Also on Tuesday, we gave out Years of Service Awards for anyone that reached a milestone Anniversary. Getting awards this year were: Marty Ahlf for 5 years, Rod Hammond for 5 year, Lynn Richardson for 5 year, Connie Krueger for 10 years, Pat Manning for 10 year, Barry Hirschey for 15 year, and Scott Haskin for 30 years. Congratulations and THANK YOU to all of these employees!
We also want to say Thank You to our employees’ families, for their support. Thank You to all of our customers and suppliers, as we could not be in business without you. And, also a big Thank You to the Cities of Staples and Aitkin and the State of Minnesota for their ongoing support.
