Bedford Staff Takes an Afternoon Break to Celebrate the Holidays

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!

Happy Halloween from TFMoran!

TFMoran celebrated the end of the week with some Halloween festivities last Friday!

The Bedford office enjoyed an assortment of mac and cheese from Mr. Mac’s! Those with a sweet tooth enjoyed Maryanne’s festive desserts: witch’s finger cookies and oatmeal carmelitas!

A costume contest was held, Alex was the funniest for his “three-hole punch” costume, Julia was the spookiest for her “Georgie” from It, and Robin and Maryanne were best overall for their “Mary Mary Quite Contrary” group costume! Maryanne dressed in her gardening attire, while Robin represented her flowers! Coworkers faced off in Pumpkin Strongman – seeing who could hold the pumpkin the longest. Zac won the contest with a whopping time of 2:26, with Nick coming in a close second at 2:20.

The Portsmouth office also celebrated with their costumes – check out their festive photo above!

Happy Halloween from your friends at TFM!
