“Pre-Super Bowl TGIF” Celebration at TFMoran’s Bedford Office

The Bedford office celebrated with a “Pre-Super Bowl LIII TGIF” gathering on February 1, 2019. Members of the Bedford office wore their favorite NE Patriots themed attire to work, from sweatshirts, to sox, to earrings, and met in the lobby at the end of the day to enjoy appetizers and beverages. The delicious appetizers (including chicken wings) were catered by TGI Fridays. Everyone had a great time, discussing plans for the Super Bowl and reminiscing on memories of past Patriot’s Super Bowls. This was the 9th time that the Patriots have been to the Super Bowl in the past 20 years, and would marked Tom Brady’s 6th Super Bowl victory!

Monday morning talk around the water cooler was how the game was a defensive battle but the Patriots managed to pull away in the 4th quarter after a terrific catch by Gronk, a touchdown from Sony Michel, and a field goal by Gostkowski to seal the game.

Congratulations to the Patriots on another Super Bowl victory!

Looking Back on TFMoran’s 50th Year Celebration

As we start a new year, we’re taking a moment to look back on 2018 – a year of celebration for TFMoran. Last year marked our 50th year of service, and we found ourselves “Celebrating 50 Years” throughout the entire year. To commemorate this milestone, we designed a Gold Anniversary logo that  was used on all company collateral including polo shirts, pens, notebooks, and even brandy snifters.

Throughout the year, TFMoran hosted special events with staff  and guests to celebrate our 50-year-milestone, including two summer barbecues held at our Bedford office. Great food and great fun were key elements as we shared our success with those who have made our 50 years in business possible. The barbecues featured steak tips, hamburgers, chicken, summer salads, topped off with anniversary cake and ice cream, of course!

In addition to the commemorative gifts and barbecues, TFMoran held a 50th Anniversary celebration luncheon at the Bedford Village Inn just before Thanksgiving. TFMoran’s principals gave thanks to the more than 60 dedicated staff in each department: Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering, Land Surveying, Traffic Engineering, Landscape Architects and Stormwater Management Group.

The year-long celebration concluded with an office family Christmas party, decorated in theme with blue and gold ornaments, a beautiful live tree, and festive poinsettias.

Now that 2019 is underway, TFMoran has retired the 50th Anniversary logo and has introduced a slightly revised logo to start off our 51st year. Here’s to continued success and another 50 years!

Best wishes to Joe Sears – 40 Years dedicated to TFMoran!

Everyone at TFMoran wishes Joe Sears the very best in his retirement, well-deserved after working over 40 years with the Company!  In September, on Joe’s 40th Anniversary, TFMoran staff celebrated his 40 Years with an office party dedicated to Joe. And, just before his last official day of working for TFMoran, president Bob Duval gave a few words of congratulations at the Company’s Annual Harvest Lunch:

“If one thing is clear; that is Joe is more than a fellow employee, Joe is an institution. Over the years, Joe has had many roles here: party chief, office manager, blueprint-maker, copier service technician, courier, delivery man, file card indexer, light bulb changer, Christmas decorator, bartender, supply orderer, receptionist, fix-it man, furniture maker, keeper of tools, file manager, grounds crew, and this is just the recent part of his career.  I could go on and on.

Although there is one thing he wasn’t particularly good at – that is, throwing things away.  We had to do that when he wasn’t looking.

In the past few years, perhaps Joe’s most important job has been getting our work down on paper and getting it out the door on time.  It is perhaps too easy to take this for granted, but ultimately our best work does no one any good unless it is plotted, scanned, copied, collated, and mailed or delivered into the right hands at the right time.

Joe was an indispensable part of that process, and we all learned to rely on Joe – often at the last minute – to get it done.  And he never let us down.  This is just one example of the extra effort on the part of every single member of the team that is necessary to become – and remain – a successful company.  The saying goes that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.  And Joe has been a strong link in his many roles for the past 40 years.

So it is with great pleasure that I present this small token of our appreciation and ask everyone to join me and congratulate Joe on 40 years of service to TFMORAN!!

Forty years ago Joe graduated from college in 1976 with a BS in Business Management. He came out of school seeking a job at a Navy shipyard. While waiting for that position to begin, Joe took a temporary position at TFMoran. Lucky for us, temporary became permanent. Beginning in 1977 in Manchester, NH, Joe was among the original TFMoran crew. Beginning as a land surveyor/service technician, Joe tried out almost every position in the office.

We thank Joe for all he has done, and wish him the very best in his golden years! We expect and hope he will drop by now and again, to let us know what he’s been up to in retirement life.
