Company Christmas Party

Bob and I attended his company Christmas party this past Saturday eveninbg.  The company Christmas party is a function that I look forward to.  The companionship of friends, the Christmas decorations, a festive atmosphere and entertainment go a long way toward getting me into the holiday spirit.

As we entered the company’s recreation center, we dropped off a bag of non-perishable food items in one of the collection boxes located inside the building. Bob’s company is having a food drive to help those less fortunate. The food collected will be given to the Salvation Army for distribution locally in time for Christmas.

We enjoyed the company of many friends, especially those who sat at our table. There were six seated at our table — Tom and Liz (Bob and Tom graduated high school together), Ron and his friend Angie, and Bob and I.

Of those sitting at our table, I knew only Ron and, of course, Bob.  Tom, Liz and Angie were friendly and sociable. We enjoyed a variety of conversation with those seated at our table. We socialized with friends at other tables as well.

Our dinner was prepared by Wells Hog Wild BBQ.  Appetizers were served at 6:00 PM and included veggie trays, smoked sausage and cheese platters and meatballs in BBQ sauce.   Shortly before dinner was served, the huge Christmas tree was lit and a word of prayer was said. Dinner was served shortly after 6:30 PM.  The banquet table was filled with delicious entrees of beef, chicken and pork as well as side dishes of mixed green salad & dressing, dinner rolls and butter, corn, baked beans, and red potatoes.   For dessert we had a selection of different flavored cupcakes from Fifth Avenue Cake Works.  The chocolate cupcake with peanut butter icing was delicious!  The bottom of the cupcake was a flat cookie, an Oreo I think.  Inside the cupcake was a miniature Reese’s peanut butter cup.

Christmas carols were provided by the Warren Area High School Madrigal Choir under the direction of Rob Pearce.

Listening to High School ChoirThe Madrigal Choir performed a variety of holiday songs and sounded wonderful.

After the Madrigal Choir’s performance, we were entertained by Stand-up Comedian Vic Henley.  Mr. Henley was funny; there was much laughter throughout his performance.

The show was followed by the music of Logan Black of Pitch Black DJ Service.  Everyone at our table left the party soon after the music started. Neither Bob nor I dance. We find it difficult to talk over the music, so we always leave the party soon after the music starts.

We received unexpected news during the party.  In addition to having Christmas Day off work, Bob and his coworkers will have the day after Christmas off, with pay, as well!  It is not unusual for the company for which Bob works to give its employees the day before or the day after Christmas off, when Christmas falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday.  I can’t remember employees having the day off after Christmas, when Christmas Day falls on a Wednesday!
