Colonial staff recently enjoyed some downtime, and good competitive fun, at our summer Employee Appreciate Event. We took advantage of the Maine summer weather in our yard outside company headquarters in South Portland with a lively beanbag toss tournament and BBQ. A big thank you to Sandra Fogg for organizing the event for us, and to Karin Francoeur’s dad for doing all the grilling! Congratulations to this year’s champions – Mike Riesbeck and Ryan Coffin!
