Christmas is just a few days away, and there is an abundance of holiday cheer with the island staff thanks to the generous gifts from so many of you, our owners. Over the last several weeks, many of you have sent contributions to the Employee Holiday Fund. Today, the checks are being distributed to the staff, and everyone sincerely appreciates your kindness. We also deeply appreciate the box of sweets and cookies that was carefully prepared on Sunday afternoon and delivered to each one of us earlier this week. We are all certainly fortunate to be part of such a generous and caring community.
Last Friday afternoon, our staff gathered at the Alley in Charleston for our annual holiday party. The afternoon was filled with lots of food and fun. We had a fantastic time together, and we thank you for affording us the opportunity to celebrate together as a staff.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family. On behalf of the staff, I would like to say thank you for your gifts to us, and Merry Christmas to each of you!
