SJF employees and management took a few minutes to celebrate Christmas on a Friday afternoon. We enjoyed great food from Famous Daves (nice call owners!) and discussed our year and it’s accomplishments. The sales awards were also passed out and employees were recognized for all the hard work they do to make SJF what it is today.
The SJF chili competition was a big success! We had three entrants this time around. Lori Foster brought a red chili made with mostly home-grown ingredients. Vance Haugen entered a delicious red chili, and Craig Fasching brought another small pot of excellent red. Kent Powell brought home-made corn bread to compliment all of the entries. ‘Fixins were provided by SJF.
After all of the chili was tasted, the final vote count was as follows:
Vance Haugen: 9
Lori Foster: 4
Craig Fasching: 3
Making Vance the winner(…this time).
An Addendum: There were to be four entries in the contest this year, however one of the entries made it only as far as the front door of SJF. A certain owner of the company (his first name rhymes with Tank) forgot about the tupperware bowl full of chili in his briefcase. As he entered the building, briefcase in hand, he wondered aloud what smelled like chili before realizing that it was the entire contents of his bag.
