We hope that you enjoyed your time at the Thanksgiving, Service Awards and Retiree Celebration at the Nashville Zoo on Nov. 18th and felt the appreciation we have for each and every one of you.
A big thanks to Hellen Allen and the Leadership Team for making this special day possible.
It was a great time of fellowship, good food and catching up with people many of us haven't seen in quite some time.
The celebration was also bittersweet with us saying our final official work goodbyes to Sheila Harrison who has retired from the Communications Team with 13 years of service to the agency, and Ask the UMC's Vicki Wallace timing her retirement at her 25 year mark.
For those that would like to relive some of the fun, or for those that weren't able to be with us in person, we've put together a slideshow of memories for you to enjoy.
Congratulations again to all of the service award winners*:
