Pen Bay Healthcare Thanks Employees and Community
December 20, 2013
To The Editor:
The Pen Bay Celebration Committee wishes to thank all the employees and their families who worked on and attended the recent Pen Bay Healthcare holiday party at the Samoset Resort.
The Committee also thanks the community member organizations who donated beautiful centerpiece decorations for the dining tables. The organizations include: Shelley’s Flowers, Hoboken Gardens, TJ MAXX, Seasons Downeast, Harbor Farms and The Chrismas Greens Shop. Marti Stone Photography offered her photography services to take photos of Santa with children and families for which the Committee is grateful, as well as the many Midcoast businesses who also donated gifts and services for our raffle and door prizes.
All told, families appreciated an uninterrupted evening spent together while kids had fun getting their faces painted, visiting with Santa Claus and making holiday ornaments and cookies. The festivities included holiday music all evening by DJ Jim Leitny, singing performed by the Camden High School a capella group, “Upbeats,” and traditional carols sung by a group of volunteer Pen Bay carolers who gathered for a month to practice for the performance.
Ever humble and gracious, Judy Benner, a 37-year Pen Bay employee and Special Care Unit support partner, was announced as Employee of the Year. Judy was previously honored as Employee of the Month last June.
Many thanks to the community for helping to make this evening special for the Pen Bay family!
