Driving up to Yaak, Montana for the Company Christmas Party was like being in a winter wonderland; the party was held in the local community center to give it a feeling of being in a warm cabin on a wintery night. It was a great time to mingle with our colleagues. The food was to die for as it was prepared by Bob’s catering services. Throughout the event, there were games played and gifts exchanged.One of the lead supervisors mentioned how nice it was to celebrate with friends that have the same mission in helping troubled teens. David, the program director, gave the analogy to the staff that they were like the stars in the dark sky that gives light to the students at Turning Winds Academic Institute. Despite the cold weather, the spirit of Christmas warmed all of our hearts.
