Tradition is an important part of The Center’s culture. That’s why we couldn’t be happier to see last year’s picnic turning into a tradition. For our 2nd Annual Center Picnic, The Center team gathered at Island Lake State Park in Brighton on July 19th. The day was filled with food, laughs, and competition. The weather wasn’t quite as cooperative as last year, but that didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the day.
The picnic began with some friendly games of cornhole and balloon animals for the kids. We fueled up on burgers, hot dogs, sausages, chips, cupcakes, and cookies, and then the games began.
Referred to by some as “The Boyce Show,” Dan was once again the Master of Ceremonies. Even as the ominous clouds began to roll in, our MC reminded the team that, much like the financial markets, we can’t be deterred by an uncertain future! Despite the periodic rain showers, Dan maintained order and fun with his trusty megaphone.
The competition was heated in the balloon toss, egg and spoon race, and volleyball matches where The Center team’s passion and determination shined through. We firmly believe the motto:
It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.
Everyone left the picnic feeling like a champion. However, it should be noted that some team members claim they are already training for next year.
