I love days like today when we have the chance to recognize people for their hard work, commitment, and dedication to Stampin' Up! We gathered together this afternoon to visit with friends and coworkers, enjoy holiday treats, and to give some well-deserved accolades.
We recognized fourteen employees in Riverton, one in Europe, and one in China who celebrated their 5-year anniversary, fourteen who celebrated their 10-year anniversary, and eight people who celebrated 15-years with the company this year. We also honored one woman who has been with us for 20 years...pretty incredible! (We'll be celebrating in Kanab tomorrow.) Of course my favorite part of our annual celebrations is the opportunity I have to give my personal thanks and hugs to some terrific people!
It was also a treat to thank all the employees who spent time during their lunch breaks to tie quilts for the Road Home, a local homeless shelter. We've been working on these quilts for months, and a few departments even had their weekly meetings around the quilting frames. The 52 twin-size quilts will be delivered tomorrow, thanks to the efforts of many people. It was a nice way to serve during the holidays.
As often as I try, I don't think I'll ever be able to adequately express how grateful I am to work with such wonderful people, and my holidays are brighter because of them!
