January 8th, 2020- The Office Balloon Prank

What do you think of when you hear “celebration”? We think of balloons. For 25 years on the Drive, we thought of a lot of balloons. So, we celebrated her announcement by filling her office with balloons! Her reaction? Priceless.

OFFICE BALLOON PRANK!

YAY or NAY? Would you have been more angry than Nan?The first week of Nanuary is underway! We thought we'd celebrate Nan's retirement at the end of the month by filling her office with balloons! ~robin

January 15, 2020- Employee of the Month @ Overflow Brewing Company

We got notice that our friends over at Overflow Brewing Company had some exciting news for us…Nan was named Employee of the Month, with the perks of ‘lead sampler’!

So, Wendy and Robin decided to accept this great honour on her behalf.

Nan was sort of there… check out the video below!

Robin, Wendy & Brendan upset Nan during employee of the month celebrations!

YAY or NAY? Is Nan right to be a little upset at us for "taking advantage" of her being stuck at work after the lads at @Overflow Brewing Company declared her EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH! ~robin
