John Prosock Machine held its annual Christmas party in December with almost all of its employees in attendance.
Everyone enjoyed the food, as always. This year Ken, Gerald and Tyler wowed the attendees with their combined pulled pork. They were up during the night in the pouring rain to make sure the fires didn’t go out on their EGG Smokers. Barb exclaimed, “It topped anything we’ve ever had!” The meal was followed by JPM’s yearly Christmas gift auction with Helen being the winner for the biggest gift!
In addition to the food, everyone enjoyed the games, including the “famous artist” game.
In July 2012 John Prosock Machine celebrated their 30th year anniversary. Barb’s sister Suzanne attended this year’s Christmas Party, so John shared how he asked Suzanne if she would lend him $3,000.00 for his first manual milling machine which he planned to put in the basement of their first home and how the business grew from there.
To commemorate that time, JPM had special t-shirts bearing the slogan “Celebrating 30 Years” made, and each employee received one at the end of the party.
John Prosock Machine welcomed its new employees, Arturo Andreali, Bob Gingrich, Brian McGunnigle, Ian Allen, Kody McKeevor, Len Rice, Mike Guadagno, Janice Kulp and Rob DiCarlintino. JPM honored Kermit for his 10 years of service. He is now “retired,” but works two days a week. Also honored: Josh Whiteman, 10 years, CJ Farrington and Adam Bertino, 5 years. CJ and Adam received company jackets for their 5 years of working for John Prosock Machine.
Special guests included two employees who are recovering from accidents, Phil Damon, and Quincy Rogers. Phil # 31 is recovering from a very serious car accident in which he suffered a severe brain injury. Please visit the Princess Leia Foundation website at www.cosmicsnot.com/princessleia.html and consider reaching out to his family in this time of need. Their presence made the annual party extra special.
