Even in the middle of our busy season, we still manage to get a few other things done and have a little fun!

Getting Involved!
Jay Lohman has been elected as Chairman of the Board of University of Advancing Technology.

Big Moments
Kristen Czarnecki celebrates her 3 year anniversary (February 1st) with Lohman Company and Wendy Carrasco celebrates her 6 year anniversary (February 13th). We appreciate their service!

Cati Piorkowski's son, Jack, won the 2013 Region One Spelling Bee Championship and competed at the Arizona State Spelling Bee on March 23rd. He took 10th place overall! You can see Jack and the other finalists at http://www.azpbs.org/spellingbee/2013/ and read about his accomplishments at http://bit.ly/10wHCMp. We're always proud to give kudos to hard working kids! Congratulations Jack!

As a Mesa Chamber of Commerce board member, Craig Lohman attended an event at the Las Sendas Golf Club for their Vistas Pavilion grand opening.  The event gathered local businesses and officials to honor several guests, including Alice Cooper and his nonprofit foundation – Alice Cooper Solid Rock Foundation. Craig's now thinking of a second career as a rock star!

The Lighter Side of Lohman
Staying sane during tax season requires a little creativity! Here's how we keep our employees motivated, happy and energized.

Big Valentine's Day Bingo Game: Amanda Perrotte was our lucky $20 winner!

President's Day/Oscar Ballot Contest started with a kickoff lunch from Macaroni Grill brought in for everyone. Our big President's Day Bingo winner was Kari Kidd who took home $20 and our Oscar Ballot winner was Pamela Vaught, also a $20 recipient. She sure knows her movie news, getting 20 out of 24 correct! And not to forget those who aren't so current on the movie scene, Amanda Perrotte won $20 for the “Razzie” award, getting only 4 out of 25 correct!

On March 26th we brought in a professional massage therapist to provide chair massages for all of our hard working associates and on March 29th, we refreshed everyone again with Jamba Juice smoothies for all!

Our last winner of the month was  Kristen Czarnecki, taking home $20 in the Easter Bingo Match.

We bet all this fun makes you want to be a Lohman Company employee too! Stay tuned, more fun to come next month!
