MCC Picnic 2016 — What an Experience!

Memphis Communications Company Picnic

2016 MCC Annual Company Picnic

This October marks my fourth year with Memphis Communications and one of the things I have noticed is the saying "we are a family" is truly meant in this company. Each year, the company finds many different ways to celebrate this family and bring everyone together. This past Saturday, we had our annual Company Picnic and employees and family came from all 4 offices to join us in the celebration.

The Kid’s Zone Experience

In the Kid's Zone, the little ones had relay races and there were lots of blue ribbons seen throughout the day. They also had tons of sports like croquet, football and badminton to play. Sharon Bolton, from our Memphis office, reprised her role as face painter extraordinaire and made some adorable kids into adorable cats and butterflies. The lovely Deborah Nelson helped everyone find their creative side making tie-dyed MCC t-shirts. And after lunch the kids were treated to balloon animals and cotton candy and snow cones. A very special thank you to Nikki Harville for organizing the Kid's Zone events and keeping the little ones entertained.

The Food Experience

As with any family gathering, food played a major role in our picnic experience. MCC is blessed to have a resident grill master in Chad Arterburn, Memphis Document Solutions Technician. Chad spent all day Friday blinking BBQ smoke out of his eyes as he cooked 70 lbs of chicken and multiple Boston butts for Saturday's feast. With the help of his sidekick, Jean Coetzee, Jackson Document Solutions Technician, on Saturday, the food was perfect. Thank you to both of you and to everyone who brought a dish or helped out with the food. A special thank you to Linda Cole for organizing the food and ensuring everything went off smoothly.

The Karaoke Experience

After lunch, the hidden MCC talents were revealed as our employees and family members grabbed a mic and belted out a few tunes in the karaoke contest. Who knew the talent ran this deep at Memphis Communications?

The second place prize went to Kim Hoppers from our MCC Jackson office who sang a beautiful rendition of the Eagles' "Desperado". Such a lovely voice from such a lovely lady! Congratulations Kim!

MCC Jackson's got a hidden jewel! This is our very own Kim Hoppers singing Desperado to win second place in the karaoke contest today at the MCC Picnic. Great job Kim!! #BestPicnicEver

The Karaoke Experience

The first place prize went to Chandler Day, the son of our Memphis office's Document Solutions Service Manager, Chris Day. Chandler sang the Michael Buble song "Feeling Good" and had the whole audience feeling good by the end. Keep your eye on this guy...he is going places! We know Chris is certainly one proud papa! Congratulations on your win Chandler!

The Cornhole Experience

Like most families, we can get a bit competitive, and this is never more apparent than during the cornhole competition. After multiple elimination rounds, it came down to the 2 final teams. Father and son team Chris and Chandler Day, against the Document Solutions Sales powerhouses of Tim Barlow and Doug Corbitt. In the end, Tim, MCC Jackson General Sales Manager, and Doug, Memphis Document Solutions Sales Consultant pulled out the victory! Congratulations to both teams!
