“G with an O, O with a D, T with an I, M with an E, that spells: GOOD TIME!”
This probably is going to be my favorite blog to write, because who doesn’t love writing about a good time? Our Bankers South team had the opportunity to make the annual trip down to Marco Island for the Florida Cattlemen’s Association Convention & Trade Show, and what a trip it was! The trade show could not have went better. We enjoyed seeing familiar faces, catching up with old friends, meeting new folks, and giving out heaps of awesome goodies.
One of the highlights for our team, though, was the Whiskey & Wine Event we hosted Tuesday night.
We teamed up with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc. and Boehringer Ingelheim to throw a lively, energetic party. We were thrilled to have everyone come out, and from what we have heard, good times were had by all! The Seminole Tribe was gracious enough to contribute their various wines as well as tastings of their delightful rib eye.
Not only that, but we had a fantastic musician, Ed Horowitz, serenading the evening with his guitar, mandolin, and even violin. At one point, Ed broke out in “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” and a few of our own sang along!
Of course, it can’t be “work, work, all week long,” so we had a photo booth at the entrance to the party for our guests to have the chance to put on a different hat (literally!) and show their goofy, spunky, crazy sides. It was great seeing everyone, from little kids to grown cowboys, have a blast in front of the camera.
It was a wonderful evening full of food, fun, and friends – and overall was a fantastic week. After learning that we will not be calling it “Marco” for the next two years, though, it was bittersweet having to say goodbye – but we are looking forward to what’s in store for next year!
