There’s an old saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and I think that’s absolutely true. We went to Mexico as a family for a week right up until Christmas day. It was so great to get away to relax, play lots of beach volleyball, eat lots, snorkel in the ocean and cave dive as a family.
This months diligent, conscientious team player shows up with meticulous attention to detail makes each working shift amazing. Liam has not only met our required expectations of him as a detailer on our unforgettable team but he has also recruited an additional valuable team member and is now part of the 3 amigos as we like to call them.
Similar to her favourite type of chocolate is the bittersweet feeling I have as I write this months team player article. There is a season for coming and a season for going. Maria’s coming to Brentwood was over 8 years ago as she joined our finance team responsibilities.
I’d like to suggest, based on the evidence we see at Brentwood, that corporate Christmas parties are not dead. In fact, we are seeing corporate teams increasing their use of limousine service. Why? Well more than ever companies have a responsibility to mitigate unnecessary risk.
Although I have been a participant on the coaching staff of the ‘04 Waterloo Wolves select group of hockey players, this year I have the privilege and responsibility to be sitting in the driver’s seat as the head coach.
October historically is very busy at Brentwood leading up to Oktoberfest this year has been unusually busy as Brent and I attended many additional community events and pleased to support so many great causes.
With Nov 11th around the corner and today as I reflect, I am grateful for our “FREEDOM”. October’s holiday unlocks our thinking to Thanksgiving and November reminds us all that our Freedom is on the backs of many who fought for us to live Free.
