What We’re Thankful For (Hint: It’s not just Turkey)

One thing that I really appreciate about the holidays is the refocusing of interest on people. It’s a time to get together with people you love and celebrate that love. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of life we forget about the little things, but here at QuintEvents we try to always keep people—whether it’s our employees, clients or families—at the center of what makes our company great.

It’s been a wonderful year at our organization and we are all thankful for having a great place to work. With Thanksgiving upon us, we asked our employees to tell us what they are thankful for. Their responses may (or may not) surprise you, but they will definitely bring a smile to your face. Enjoy!

Turkey Thanksgiving

“The opportunity to spend time with my entire family, for the first time in a while over our time off, and my father’s health.”
