Saturday, August 29, FreshPoint Charlotte hosted their annual family fun day at Frank Liske Park in Concord, North Carolina.
Every year, FreshPoint Charlotte hosts an annual family fun day for their associates and family members. This year, FreshPoint Charlotte decided to close down business for the day to recognize and thank their employees for their hard work and dedication. While closing down business can be a difficult decision, especially when it can impact business and customer needs, the decision was made so that all associates could come out and enjoy the fun!
Employees arrived at the park and checked in with Human Resource Manager, Keya Parsons, and Customer Service Representative, Deirdre Davis. Upon check in, all associates and family members received tickets to play the game booths, and wristbands for free rides and entry to paddle boats and miniature golf.
With so many activities to participate in, we couldn’t expect the employees to run around on an empty stomach! BBQ was catered courtesy of Jim ‘N Nick’s. Employees and their families had an array of options with BBQ chicken, beef brisket, shredded BBQ pork, coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, pickles, an assortment of BBQ sauces and cheese biscuits. After all bellies were full, the excitement continued with activities galore! Face painting for all, volleyball, corn hole, a live DJ with dancing, and a wet bounce that was a hit with the little ones. With good food, good company – good times were sure to be had! The fun continued with paddle boats, a balloon animal maker, and game booths.
And no picnic would be complete without a dunk tank! FreshPoint Charlotte gave everyone the chance to dunk their favorite managers and watch them go under. The Dunk Tank was a hit and a definite crowd gatherer! All is fair in love and dunk tanks!
All in all, this year’s Annual Family Fun Day was a success! FreshPoint Charlotte would not be a successful company without its employees and the support from their family members. We thank each and every one of our employees for their contributions to our success! FreshPoint values their employees and family members and seeing everyone with a smile on their face is a very rewarding gift.
