Thanks to everyone who came out for the Christmas party at the Volare Italian Restaurant in Oakbrook Terrace on December 4th. Attendance was a packed house for this event, which made it a very enjoyable evening for all the members.
The live Musical entertainment was something that members will remember for years. New Orleans Beau and the Big East Band gave this years party a very special flavor to bring in the Holiday’s with our industry friends.
This year’s door prizes were a wine basket, rum basket, and vodka basket. Some very nice extras were included in each basket making it a very nice gift. The winners were selected by random from the attendance sign in sheet.
We wish to thank James Monroe Wire & Cable for donating the Tablet, Television, and IPod for this years Christmas raffle to benefit the Elevator and Escalator Safety Foundation. The foundation will receive $830.00 dollars from the raffle, and that will educate over 2,800 children on the safe and proper way to ride elevators and escalators. We also wish to thank all of those who participated in the raffle; your support made this event a success.
February’s meeting Affiliated Fire will be presenting on their elevator fire/smoke detection equipment. Mark your calendars for the next meeting on February 6th 2014.
