What does the holiday season mean to you?

Chris, Purchasing Manager - “Spending quality time with family and being thankful for all we have.”

Do you or your family have any unique traditions or decorations?

Britt, Accounts Payable & Office Manager - “Every Christmas Eve, my family reads "The Polar Express" and we take turns ringing the silver bell when the page is being turned. Even living across the country from my family, this still happens – thanks to FaceTime.”
Chris, Purchasing Manager – “We get up early in the morning and prepare all of our holiday dinner food from scratch. We also like to play board games and cards.”
