Our Employees are the Best

It was a perfect summer day for the Employee Picnic. Employees and their families joined the sisters for the annual appreciation event. Food, fun and friendship were shared; games and swimming were enjoyed. “Our employees are very special people and we are happy to tell them how much we appreciate them with this picnic,” said Sister Anne Wambach, prioress. “They do so much for us and we are very grateful.”

The picnic was organized by Sister Judith Trambley, Personnel Director, Sister Diane Cook, Treasurer, and Sister Diane Rabe, Monastery coordinator. One of the highlights of the event is the Chinese Auction. Each employee gets several tickets to distribute among the items they like best; every employee gets one ticket on the grand prize. “I love to see the faces as the winners are announced for each prize,” said Sister Diane Cook. “It is especially fun when the prize is for a child. There is nothing better than those little beaming faces when they realize their mom or dad won something just for them.”
