Another Summer Season is upon us, and everyone has a lot going on. Vacations, visiting relatives, graduations, weddings, or hitting the beaches and lounging poolside trying to stay cool. Then of course let’s not forget about those who took a relaxing cruise.

We all wish Tom Hutton, our longtime receiver and friend, a happy retirement!

We had a few changes in our departments with managers. Welcome Jeff Burns (Assistant Manager), Andy Powers (Deli Manager), Steve McPartland (Meat Manager), Barry Rakoczy (Frozen Food Manager), and Rich Nelson (DSD).

Our front end had a few cashiers graduate from high school this year. Congratulations to Noah Blondo and Destinee Green!

We had another addition to the Oropeza Family, proud dad to a baby boy, Isaeas, is Abel Oropeza, and Celeste Oropeza’s granddaughter, Isabella is turning one year old in August.

Our condolences to Rich Nelson, Andy Powers, Steve McPartland, and Nanda Mohamed on their recent losses.

Here are a few of our employee’s vacation destinations. Jimmy Abello took a cruise to Hawaii, and Jimmy Khalil also took a cruise to the Caribbean Islands. Steve McPartland took a flight to Jamaica with family. Andre Marc went back home to Haiti to visit his family. Frank Costello took a car cruise to Ocean City Maryland for a two week stay. Tom Angelo in our meat department walked his daughter Lisa down the aisle on May 1,2016 to give her away to her husband, Eric. It was an emotional day for Tom to give his baby away, but all went well.
