The holiday season at Western State Design was nothing short of spectacular, as we gathered across our various offices to celebrate the joyous festivities. From mouth-watering Italian feasts to striking it big at Top Golf, our holiday parties were a testament to the camaraderie and spirit that define our incredible team.
Hayward: A Festive Feast and Funky Sweaters
Our Corporate Office in Hayward set the stage for a luncheon of Italian indulgence. The aroma of delectable dishes filled the air as our team feasted on catered Italian delights. Laughter echoed through the hallways during our Ugly Sweater contest, where the likes of Ryan Lucken, Jorge Lopez, and Brian De Lara stole the show. The traditional white elephant gift exchange brought forth hilarious moments and friendly competition, making it a gathering to remember.
Arizona: Swinging Success at Top Golf
In Glendale, Arizona, our team took a swing at a different kind of celebration. Top Golf provided the perfect setting for an evening of fun and friendly competition. Families joined the festivities as President Tom Marks showcased his golf prowess, leading the pack in Top Golf scoring. It was a night filled with laughter, good food, and memorable moments under the Arizona stars.
Cerritos: Tacos, Celebrations, and Farewells
The Cerritos Office transformed its warehouse (pictured above) into a festive haven, with Soho Taco Truck serving up a storm of flavors. The shrimp tacos garnered rave reviews, but every bite was a winner. Family members added to the joyous atmosphere. On the preceding Saturday, we celebrated our teams assigned to LA County and the Federal Government Maintenance Contracts at a Red Lobster luncheon. That event also marked the retirement of Dave Herman after an incredible 28 years of dedication. Cheers to delicious fare, uplifting celebrations, and a fond farewell.
Pacific Northwest Office: Strikes, Spares, and Strikes Again
Big Al’s in Vancouver, Washington, played host to the Pacific Northwest Office’s festivities. The evening kicked off with a satisfying spread and concluded with some friendly competition on the bowling lanes. While Doug Downey, Hal Westerlund, and Jim Wright were in attendance (though not pictured), the real revelation came from our Oregon Technician, Kaden Baker, whose bowling skills left us in awe.
Overall: A Year-End to Remember
As we reflect on the holiday season, we are grateful for the abundance of laughter, collegiality, and fun that filled each event. It was heartwarming to have so many family members and significant others join us in celebrating the festive season. A special shout out to the incredible team members who made these events possible, ensuring that the spirit of joy prevailed across all our offices.
A massive thank you to every member of the Western State Design team for their unwavering efforts throughout 2023. Here’s to a new year filled with even more success, laughter, and shared moments that make our workplace truly extraordinary!
