We want to thank everyone who attended the Annual Anderson Christmas Party on Thursday, December 14th, 2017.
Surrounded by all of the Anderson employees and their loved ones, we had a wonderful time at Brock’s Riverside Grill located in Downtown Fredericksburg. Brock’s provided a beautiful venue and delicious dinner buffet. The buffet included crab dip, chicken tenders, chicken cordon bleu, prime rib, salad, potato salad, green beans, roasted potatoes and crab cakes! Even though everyone was full from all of the tasty food, they still had room for dessert... cake from Paul's Bakery, an Anderson Christmas party tradition!
After everyone ate, Mark Anderson, the President of The Anderson Companies, thanked all of the employees for their hard work and making 2017 a great year. A very special thank you anniversary gift presentation was then given by Mark and Jan La Van, our Administrative Assistant, to 15 employees who have worked more than 10 years with some dedicating over 30 years to Anderson Oil and Anderson Propane.
Our Senior Vice President, Nicole Cameli, then presented the second annual Anderson Razzi Awards to those employees who stood out during the year. We have quite a few employees up for the laugh. Next, she introduced special party goer, T-Rex, who paraded around and made many friends much to the amusement of all.
This was followed by Mark and his wife, Susan, calling out the raffle winners for the many prizes including cash, a large flat screen television, Yeti cooler and a Big Green Egg!
Then just when everyone thought the Christmas party could not get any better, it was time to play Left Center Right! With Mark adding extra incentive to the pot for a more competitive final round. The lucky winner this year was Bekah, an Anderson Oil employee.
After the Anderson Company’s favorite holiday game, Mark thanked everyone for attending, and that was a wrap! Between the delicious food, presents, and good company, it was evident that everyone had a great time at the Christmas party. Anderson Oil Company, Anderson Propane Service, and Anderson Leonarkis Construction appreciate all the hard work and dedication from our employees and it was a pleasure to return the favor with gratitude, fun games, and presents.
On behalf of The Anderson Companies, we hope that you and your loved ones had a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year! 2017 was a great year and we look forward to an even better 2018!
