On February 9, 2018, THD’s entire team headed South to celebrate a terrific 2017!! Each year, THD kick starts our New Year with our annual team celebration in February! Everyone arrives by dinner on Friday night to hang out and mingle with their department. We were disappointed that some of the employees couldn’t make it with the outbreak of the flu. This year the event was hosted by the Hyatt Regency and the accommodations were fantastic! As everyone arrived the magical energy was in the air.
On Saturday morning, the employees had the activity choice of horseback riding, golf or free time. Most of the employees chose horseback riding and had a great time trail riding the hills of San Antonio. Other’s went shopping, toured the Riverwalk or visited the historic Alamo! The management team performed their annual funny skit and channeled there inner “Big and Rich” for a stellar performance and spoof of “Save some Time, Ride a Cowboy” for the company! Immediately following everyone headed to the Alamo for a great fun group shot of everyone in their newest 2018 THD shirts. Later that evening was the big awards show, and a very special video tribute to our President with the past year in review. A lot of deserving rewards were handed out, in addition to recognizing those tenured employees that have been with THD 5+ years!
The emotions were high and the entire room was lit up by smiles. After the awards, everyone went to a wonderful dinner at Paesano’s on the Riverwalk! After dinner, most everyone attended a very fun piano bar – Howl at the Moon. Everyone sang and danced and continued to celebrate each other! The entire weekend truly was wonderful and everyone got to spend time and bond with their THD family. This is one event that goes down as very special and each team member will never “Forget the Alamo – THD style!”
