The holidays are a time full of giving, family, friends and cheer that always starts early and ends too quickly. At Distributor Wire & Cable (DWC) we like to prolong the holidays just a bit with our After Christmas, Christmas Party.
On January 9th, 2015, we invited the DWC Family and guests to The Tavern Downtown for a night of fun and celebration. It wouldn’t be a DWC party without a little friendly competition. Wagers and laughter quickly broke out over the mini bowling, shuffle board, billiards and foosball table to see who could be crowned the winner.
While people waited to take on the champion at each game, a BBQ buffet was available for fuel. It came fully stocked with BBQ chicken, brisket, potatoes, cornbread and of course, Wickles the spicy pickles because no BBQ would be complete without them.
As the night wore on, the victors at each table were defeated and new champions were crowned. One exception was the shuffle board table, which was dominated by Steve Thorpe and Seth Gunderson.
Once everyone was defeated by the mighty shuffle board duo, the Year in Review video blog was played. It captured a few great highlights and silly moments from another Crazy, Stupid Fast year.
The Outside Sales Team flew into Denver HQ the week of the party for training and team building. It was nice to have the whole DWC Family together to reconnect, learn and plan for the year ahead.
“It was great to see so many Family members laugh, talk and enjoy each other’s company. I got to spend time with people I hadn’t even met yet. What a wonderful way to kick off the new year,” said Laura Kitto, people development specialist and new DWC Family member.
Overall, it really came down to the fact that we could not bear to see the holidays end and this was our fashionably late reason to have just one more party. Thanks to everyone for making it a great start to the new year.
