The Continental Shelf Associates (CSA) family of companies takes pride in crafting creative venues and consumables for its annual employee party held in Stuart, Florida. Previous years have seen us eating crawdads or having a fish fry, usually outdoors at picnic tables under festive tents and surrounded by games for the kids and adults alike.
This year, CSA employees transformed a local ranch in the country just west of our office into a fun venue for an afternoon and evening soiree. Southern barbecue with all the trimmings, a cornbread baking contest, and a table festooned with employee-made desserts were the cuisine of choice for the shindig. Senior management took shifts serving on the chow line, with more than 100 folks in attendance. Local employees and their families attended the festivities, as well as our branch office representatives from Houston, Rhode Island, California, and Trinidad.
Cornhole, giant Jenga, horseshoes, and a boomerang throwing contest were among the games enjoyed by the adults, but the biggest hit was the bounce house for the kids, followed by making s’mores around the fire pit. As the sun set and the stars came out over this lovely part of Florida, graced by the best weather of the year, we celebrated the comradery and talent that make CSA such a special place to work. Thanks to management for the party, to the setup and cleanup committee, and to everyone who joined in the fun. See you next year!
