Saturday, December 15th, featured the annual ZTL Company Christmas Party. Held for the third year at the Moose Lodge in Millerstown, the event lasted about three hours. In addition to appetizers and a great meal, everyone was entertained by “The Oxy Morons” a comedy-skit-improv group of five talented comedians from the Harrisburg area.
The celebration continued with Safety Award presentations to the drivers and Shop personnel. The Shop marked another accident-free year in 2018. Since the Shop Safety awards began eight years ago, six of those years have been without an accident or injury.
In addition to 22 drivers receiving one year safe driving pins, four drivers were recognized for five consecutive years of safe driving without an at-fault accident (each received a red jacket and $250). Seven drivers were recognized for 10 consecutive years of safe driving without an at-fault accident (each awarded a black leather jacket and $500). One driver received the safe driving award for 15 consecutive years with no at-fault accidents (a crystal engraved truck and $750) and one driver received an award for 20 consecutive years of safe driving without an at-fault accident (a plaque, $2500 travel voucher, $1000 spending money, and a week’s paid vacation). No doubt that in this profession, experience pays off! (See the December 2018 WATZT Newsletter for names, photos, and more.)
The evening ended with a fun raffle of gift cards ranging in value from $75 to $250!
