TFMoran’s Bedford employees showed their spirit at the TGIF holiday party, held last Friday just before our holiday break. Our favorite dishes from the Puritan Back Room were served along with some sweet homemade treats like sugar cookies, peppermint bark, and ginger snaps. A beautiful gingerbread house that Julia and Sophie decorated was also on display.
Those up for a fun activity enjoyed gift-unwrapping games hoping the box they opened would contain a prize! We played the “lucky layer game” where each participant gets to unwrap one layer of the gift and pass it on! Jason Hill was the lucky person to open the last layer, revealing a $25 gift card! We also played “name that holiday tune”, which Sophie and Rich both won!
Happy Holidays from all of us at TFM!
