National Teacher Day

National Garlic Day!?

Happy National Garlic Day! Yes, there is a day dedicated to garlic. Some people love it, some people hate it. Did you know that Egyptians worshipped garlic as a god—and even used it as currency? That’s not all. Garlic supposedly gave strength to Greek athletes and warriors, warded off the evil eye, and protected maidens from evil nymphs. Not to mention, vampires. (Thanks, Dracula!) Just think about all the garlicky foods we love. There’s garlic bread and garlic fries for starters. If you feel as strongly about garlic as we do, celebrate with us on April 19.

Thank You & Happy Holidays

Dear Shipyard Owners, As we approach the holidays, I just wanted to take a moment to tell you all how much the staff appreciates everything you do.  This past Friday night, we had a wonderful staff holiday party at the Beach Club. We had a silly holiday sweater/shirt theme with great food, fine fellowship among co-workers and their families, and so much fun.  We had the highest level of owner contributions to the staff holiday fund that I can remember, and so the staff received a very generous gift because of all of you.  So on behalf of the team, …
