Hilldrup Celebrates the Holidays at Home

Hilldrup Stafford was home for the holidays! Our team recently hosted our annual Christmas party at our Corporate Headquarters where there was no shortage of games to play, food to eat and prizes to win! And we can’t forget to mention, even St. Nick himself stopped by to say hello and spread some Christmas cheer!

Our office – from our front lobby to our Center for Training and Employee Development – was decorated in the spirit of the season with Christmas lights and Christmas trees. Large spreads of food were placed throughout the front lobby and training room for our team to enjoy as well. Our DJ played Christmas music to get everyone into the holiday spirit and provided live announcements as to what games were happening where and when.

Michele House, Director, International Operations, presented a “Minute to Win It” candy cane game that challenged our coordination skills collecting candy canes.  Jon Hackett, Local Planner, presented a “Mitt Present Challenge” whereby employees had to open a present with oven mitts under some serious time-restraints in order to win. Tim Licata, Manager, Local Operations, presented a “Christmas Story,” and Crystal Brinson hosted a “Left, Right and Center” game where the lucky winner received a gift card!

A photo booth was also set up so that departments, individuals and friends could all gather for a quick, festive photo to capture the fun together! Check out pictures from our photo booth here!
