The Smith Thornton team celebrated the end of the financial year in style at Garrison Restaurant on 3rd July. There were many reasons to smile, with the end of a hectic year, the celebration of Smith Thornton's 25 year anniversary and a chance to unwind with our comrades. Garrison certainly put on a show with delicious morsels to delight us and fabulous cocktails that looked as good as they tasted. There were a few speeches to be made, especially given the 25 year milestone and thanks, of course, to our hosts and the organisers of the event.
We couldn't be happier with the way the evening turned out, there were many laughs to be had and a chance to shake off the year that was. We recognised special staff members that had come and gone (and some who have stayed) as well as some very select clients who have been with us from the beginning. Mention was also made of some significant events over the years, it has certainly been a journey and we wouldn't have it any other way. We even had a photo display of what current staff looked like 25 years ago – given our youngest staff member, Sam Wilson, is only 22, this proved to be quite an interesting exercise! He is pictured here (centre) with Melinda Hudson (left) who has just seen out her 20 year anniversary and Nancy Lembo (right) who has been on board from day dot. Of the evening, Sam said "A great time shared with a great crew!", while Nancy, who has attended her fair share of these events to say the least, said "A lot of wonderful memories flooded back as we prepared for our special EOFY Party in celebrating the business's 25 year anniversary. There was lots of fun and laughter on the night reminiscing the many years together and recalling many funny stories to those newer team members to Smith Thornton."
Bring on the next 25 years!!!
