Hamburg, NJ (September 17, 2019) – On Friday 9/6/19 Ames held their 70th-anniversary employee appreciation barbecue at their Hamburg, NJ headquarters. With more than 100 teammates in attendance, Ames celebrated the event with fun and games.
Teammates enjoyed leisure time that involved members of the management team cooking and serving food as well as games and music.
Teammates took time to catch up with one another in a relaxed atmosphere while celebrating the 70 years of hard work they and their predecessors have put in to help make Ames the industry leader it is today.
The event also featured a fundraiser which benefited the American Heart Association. The fundraiser was highlighted by a dunk tank which saw several members of management volunteering to be dunked for the cause. It also included a tricky tray sponsored by Ames suppliers and distributors which helped raise funds for the cause.
“When the discussion around adding a fundraiser portion to our 70th-anniversary celebration was raised, we knew immediately it would be a hit and that wide-ranging participation and generosity would be the response.” Director of Business Development Derek Eversdyke stated during the event.
