In mid-April the entire Smith-Midland family gathered for a luncheon to celebrate the work anniversaries of their fellow associates. Of special note was the retirement of Andrew Washington who has spent over 40 years watching the growth of this place and the lives of the people he has worked with. His daily presence will be sorely missed. Queenie Webster and Carlos Martinez Chicas were equally honor for their big milestones of 30 and 20 years respectively. Every associate honored was met with heartfelt appreciation from co-workers and management alike. As each honoree was recognized a letter from their supervisor was read (see each below). Then awards were handed out, speeches made, a meal shared, and good time was had by all.
