The staff of Westvac Industrial lit up the links recently, making the company’s third annual staff appreciation golf tournament and BBQ a rousing success. About 30 people hit the course for a day of fun and team building, followed by a tasty meal.
The Westvac Industrial team of Andrew Havrelock, Tasha Laurie, Ed Jackman, and Charlotte Vermeulen won the top prize, although no one went home empty handed. Thanks to generous sponsors, including Stertil-Koni, there were great prizes for several holes and a raffle.
“The weather was amazing,” said Charlotte Vermeulen, who does marketing and communications work for Westvac Industrial.
“A lot of people who came are non-golfers, but that didn’t matter, because it was all in good fun,” she added. “The event is really great for morale and team building.”
Although the tournament wasn’t about the competition, it still provided plenty of thrills, as well as some good laughs. Coming down to the wire, three teams tied for first place after the final hole. That required a hit off, naturally.
Only this time, the players couldn’t take aim at golf balls. Instead, the tees were loaded with marshmallows.
“Whoever could hit it the farthest won,” said Vermeulen. “It went about 30 yards.”
The staff of Westvac Industrial sure knows how to have a good time. But they also know how to get a good job done, right. With its head office in Acheson, Alberta (near Edmonton), Westvac Industrial sells and services industrial equipment throughout Western Canada. The main office is supported by branches in British Columbia and Saskatchewan.
Westvac Industrial is a major distributor of Stertil-Koni’s family of heavy duty vehicle lifts, offering the finest in vehicle servicing capabilities in Western Canada.
“Our golf tournament and BBQ was one small way that we could show our appreciation for our talented staff, who work hard all year long,” said Gary Vermeulen, president of Westvac Industrial.
Dr. Jean DellAmore, president of Stertil-Koni, said, “By donating prizes to Westvac Industrial’s third annual tournament, Stertil-Koni was proud to support this wonderful team, who are integral partners for us and help our customers meet all their vehicle lifting needs.”
The day’s prizes included gift certificates, a golf bag, apparel, and other items. But the best prize of all was a great day outside, enjoying the camaraderie of colleagues. Now that’s lifting each other up!
