Company Christmas Party Cancelled

Due to the inclement weather and no alternate dates/locations to choose from, we have decided to cancel the Christmas Party this year.  We have never had to cancel our Company Christmas Party so this was a tough decision but we feel that it is the best decision considering all factors.

5 year and 10 year awards will be provided to the Clinical Supervisors at the next monthly meeting to be distributed to recipients.

Merry Christmas and please be safe.
