The annual Little Red Hen Holiday Party was held on December 16that the Lifespan Center. This event was a great time for everyone in the Little Red Hen family to come together to celebrate the holidays. It is a rare opportunity for everyone from all of our locations to come together under one roof for food and fun!
The Holiday Party is also the time of year that staff and instructor promotions are awarded. Staff Trainees can be promoted to a Staff Assistant after working with Little Red Hen for at least 3 years and demonstrating professionalism and a mastery of job skills. The promotions are announced during the holiday dinner, and newly-promoted staff are then presented with their brand new name tag.
There were a number of promotions this year including staff from Online, Gift Shop, and Kitchen Store. Promotions are given to staff who show initiative, take an active role in helping others, and in the words of Executive Director Teresa Wolk-Hayes, "Go above and beyond."
The highlight of the Holiday party for many of us was the fun and often times goofy pictures, taken in front of the photo back drop. It was a joy to see so many slapping on Santa beards, festive hats and other props for their photos. Everyone was having a great time laughing, eating and photo bombing as we closed out the year. Happy Holidays everyone!
