What are Make it Happen Events?

“Make it Happen” is our team motto – as in, we’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen for our customers because we a safe, productive and high-performing team. This motto goes back generations in our history!

Make it Happen Events are held twice per year to thank our team and recognize special accomplishments. We use this time to provide important news, company updates and insight into where we’re going. We provide a hot meal, prizes and a gift for every attendee.

  • The Spring Make it Happen Event is typically held in late May/early June.
  • The Fall Make it Happen Event is typically held in late November/early December. Employment anniversaries are presented at this event.

The dates, times and location for the events are announced at your division meetings and will be published in the RED Feed.
