Every year we at VTC Enterprises celebrate the people we serve on two very special occasions. One is the Christmas Party, which has been generously hosted by the Santa Maria Elks at their lodge for over 25 years. The other is Worker Appreciation Day, a summer event held right here at VTC. It is a day when our staff honor all the hard work done by the individuals we serve by providing food, games and dancing for an afternoon of fun and camaraderie.
“An Old Fashioned Country Carnival” was our theme this year, complete with bean bag toss, topple the cans, face painting, a hula hoop contest and a pie eating contest. Of course, the highlight of the afternoon was dancing to music provided by D.J. and good friend, Andy Morris. Andy has been donating his time and resources at both of VTC’s special events for as many years as anyone can remember. Thank you, Andy!
This event started out long ago as a Safety Fair, and though the focus of Worker Appreciation Day has broadened, we still incorporate the importance of safety into the activities. For example, Smokey the Bear was on hand this time to remind us of the critical ways we can help prevent unnecessary fires! We were also honored by a visit from the City of Santa Maria Mayor, Alice Patino. Alice graciously answered questions and shook hands with many of her enthusiastic constituents.
Many thanks go out to our special guests, our generous community, and our very dedicated staff for helping to show the people we serve how much we appreciate them!
