SJF’s Holiday Party – 2012

On Friday December 21st at noon,  SJF Material Handling shut down operations to celebrate the past year with a Holiday Luncheon for all employees.

Sam Sterner, SJF’s lead buyer, proved he can track down more than just equipment by spear-heading the food acquisition which was catered by Dicky’s BBQ Pit out of Eden Prairie, MN.   All employees were in attendance, including SJF’s  Founding Father,  Gerald (Jerry) Sterner.

After everybody enjoyed their BBQ, several awards were presented.  Here’s a recap.

Awards for Tenure

The following people were given recognition for their tenure at SJF.  SJF traditionally honors employees for every 5 years of service with the company.  The following employees “earned their stripes” in 2012.

After the awards were distributed, Frank Sterner (CFO) gave the yearly financial recap and announced that everybody in the company would be receiving several very nice SJF shirts (which would arrive after the new year).  The party started to wind down and everybody was dismissed to have a well-earned Holiday Break.
