Wordless Wednesday: Central’s Veterans Day Celebration

We know our “Wordless Wednesday” is strictly photos, but this one needed a little bit of an explanation!  Each Veterans Day, Central holds a special luncheon for all employees and invites those in the military to bring in their memorabilia.  This year’s Veterans Day celebration was different than in years past as we recently installed a flag pole in our front green space.  We raised the flag for the first time just before our luncheon in honor of our veterans and current military members.


Veterans Day at Central

For Veterans Day, Central held a luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in our picnic area for all staff members in honor of our Veterans.

Originally, lunch was to be provided for our Veterans, but a group of them came together and requested lunch be provided for the entire Central team.

The menu consisted of hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and cookies. Product Consultant Reed Harrig volunteered to cook, along with another Product Consultant, Russ Shepherd. President Troy Hanna and Customer Care Specialist Kim Swartz assisted them with clean up.

There are around 120 employees at Central and Harrig estimated about 100 came through for lunch.

Central strongly encouraged all Veterans to bring in their memorabilia to share with everyone.  Product Consultant Steve White brought in items along with National Accounts Sales Manager, Scott Ebbert.

Below is the memorabilia that was brought in:
