On December 23rd, as usual, the BWS family gathers to have a Christmas dinner together before we head out to be with or families.  The meal was fantastic and plenty to go around.

During this gathering, we also take the opportunity to present our employees with any service awards that have been earned within that 2016 work year.  And this time, we have a lot to present.

And the highest service award ever presented by BWS was given to Sheila Piper with 40 years service.  Sheila is the longest uninterrupted staff member that BWS has ever had and, in the words of Randy McDougall, President/CEO, “And that includes both myself and my father!”

On that note, Randy and Hannah wished all a wonderful holiday and congratulated our service award recipients as we shut down to relax and enjoy our families at this time of the year.
