Holiday Extravaganza

It’s been a great celebration week at work. We had name that holiday tune, snowball shake, cookie decoration contest and a candy cane toss. Each day we had a dress up theme, PJ day, Christmas sock & hat day, winter warm up, favorite Holiday Character & today Christmas Sweater day.

We have dozens of gifts to give away, both by our “Punch-a-Bunch” game as well as drawings. We’ve done this while wearing our masks and remaining socially distant. I hope you holiday celebrations are fun, successful and safe.
