Annual Company Meeting
The day-and-a-half event was spent with a variety of sessions on financials, contract review, health and safety, and highlights of various projects and programs we have. We also had some time to relax and catch up over drinks, food, and bowling! We crowned Austin Quick as our Blackstone bowling champion with a high score of 176 and rewarded our lowest score, Theresa Ferguson, with a prize for her efforts (we won't mention her score).
