Last year Team RMON has had a handful of fantastic internal events. From costume contests to amusement park happy hours we have had a blast! Let’s look at some pictures that capture these moments our team has shared together.
Business after hours at Canobie Lake:
We had a great time taking off after work as a team to go to Canobie Lake park for the Greater Salem Chamber’s Business after Hours event. You are never too old to ride a roller coaster!
We were having a sleepy week so we figured, why not see who can get decked out in the best pajamas?
Red Nose day:
On May 23rd we all wore red noses for a great cause. The proceeds from every red nose we bought, along with everybody else in the United States, went to the Red Nose Day fund which aims to donate money to the best nonprofits with the strongest track records to help end child poverty!
Fisher Cats game:
We had a blast watching a New Hampshire Fisher cats game like royalty in a private box. The food, fun and laughter was all icing on the cake!
Labor Day BBQ:
We were very excited to send off the team for Labor Day weekend in Hawaiian style complete with lots of food and a Hawaiian shirt contest.
Food Truck Friday:
We were happy to partner with local food truck Winniez Mobile Diner to have some fun on a Friday eating hearty home cooked meals as a team.
Halloween Costume Contest:
We had a blast this Halloween with our costume contest and pizza party! We are sure some of our employees turned heads driving to work in costume too.
At the end of November our team cooked some of their favorite dishes and we all shared a in the collective food coma. What a great day.
December Holiday Party:
Team RMON had a blast at our annual holiday party in Portsmouth. We had a great food and enjoyed some awesome gifts from the Yankee Swap.
