February staff meeting at RepairClinic.com

February staff meeting at RepairClinic.com came a day after a big snowstorm. Outside, the wind was blowing freezing drifts of snow, the roads were slippery, and huge chunks of ice were hanging from the roof of our building. Inside, we were having a potluck chili cook-off.

Raina, our young events coordinator, invited employees to bring in a pot of their own chili or soup recipe and share with everyone. The response was overwhelming. Early in the morning, people started bringing in their crock pots and plugging them into outlets in the kitchens or the empty cubicles. The wonderfully comforting aroma of meat, ham, tomato sauce, chicken and beans was dispersed throughout the building. It was not easy to wait until lunchtime.

At 12:30, everything was ready for our hungry group. Tables had clean tablecloths, and there were vases of yellow daffodils, giving us hope that spring was not too far away. The buffet table had a wide variety of colorful pots and each had a different dish inside. Here are some of the choices on our menu: heart attack chili; venison stew; lasagna soup; creamy potato soup; vegetarian chili; split pea soup with ham; buffalo chicken soup; while chicken chili; tortilla soup; fifteen bean soup with ham; hot and sweet sirloin beef chili; hash brown soup, and more. Little cups were provided so that people could try a verity of dishes. And on the side, we had chips, bread, and lots of delicious desserts.

Prizes were distributed, people recognized and the state of the company reported on. January was a good month and we were all excited about the new year. With all the bustling and energy at RepairClinic this winter, the warm days of spring will be here before we know it.

    It truely was a great staff meeting the food was wonderful & plentiful. The Potato soup was absolutly to die for. My favorite thing as usual was the georgou flowers adorning the tables making it seem so much more like a family gathering than a company event. Makes you glad to be a Repair Clinic.com employee with all the family atmosphere.
    Thanks to all who helped
    Dave

    Very difficult to get trough the post, especially the second part, without getting hungry. I failed miserably :). Hmm, fifteen bean soup? Sounds tempting.

    Glad to hear you stated the year on a high note. Good luck!
