Dayton’s Appreciation Day included goats, pizza from Marion’s and Oreos for dessert in honor of National Oreo Cookie Day! The team combined the celebration with a fundraising event for its 2020 charity Learning Tree Farm. Associates could enjoy a chance to pet the goats for a $2 donation.

WHO DOESN’T LOVE OREOS?
Cleveland’s Appreciation ceremonies started with second and third shift warehouse on March 5 with General Managers John Kelly and Trudy Saraz-Marvin leading the ribbon cutting of the new bottle fill water fountain in the warehouse. They also served up dinner from Stancato’s Italian restaurant. The next morning the celebration continued at 5:30 a.m., greeting the drivers and giving them boxed lunches to take with them on their route. Then on to a meeting for sales, admin and operations Associates where Wine General Sales Manager Ron Utterback conducted a “prize frenzy” for lucky raffle winners. Some of the office crew helped President Sean Hice cut the ribbon for the new bottle fill water fountain in the office. All Associates received a ceramic mug to use at the new water fountains or for coffee. A good time was had by all!
