COMPANY HAPPENINGS – BAKERSFIELD
The Bakersfield office celebrated the holidays at the Petroleum Club, twelve stories up with great views across the city. Unfortunately, no one thought to take pictures, but a good time was had by all.
Over the last several months, lots of birthdays were celebrated by our team members.

COMPANY HAPPENINGS – SANTA MARIA
The Santa Maria office has had a VERY busy social calendar over the last several months, kicking off the holiday season with a tree trimming party on December 4. That same month, staff surprised Carmen Valenzuela (CL) with a bridal shower (see announcements for the wedding pic!) Santa Maria’s annual holiday party was held at the Far Western, with highlights including a fabulous buffet, Susan Jansen’s (Mktg) annual video recap, and a celebratory speech from Member Ron Cossa. Natalyn Huerth (HR) received special recognition for her tireless efforts to help the staff be successful. The holiday celebrations finished up with a Christmas Eve gift exchange and ugly Christmas sweater contest.
Ugly Christmas Sweaters of Santa Maria
In January, the office celebrated Val Bradley’s retirement with a dog-themed party attended by many past and present co-workers. The event was catered by Chef Ricks and Val received some nice parting gifts, including a week at her favorite vacation spot and a memory book.
Excellence Awards were presented to Teri Gonzales (CL) for going above and beyond to advise a client of their need for additional coverages, Melody Ambroff (Mktg) for helping the WC Claims department by inputting claims in AMS 360, and to Natalyn Huerth (HR) for her positive, can do attitude and being instrumental with T&W’s implementation of our new Web Benefits portal. Congratulations, ladies!!!
