WPC Education | December

Happy Holidays!!

This month was our annual Holiday Party. Our host was The Westin Columbus who provided delicious food, beverages, and a hot cocoa bar to warm up our cold bones. We were entertained with Christmas music and trivia from John Wilburn with VIP Events Management. We had fun taking photos in the photo booth provided by Doug Melvin Photography & Video, Getting our palms read by Class Acts Entertainment, playing giant Jenga, making our own ornaments, & decorating cookies. We also had a White Elephant Gift exchange which is always a good time! A BIG thank you to everyone that brought a gift for Toys for Tots. Many toys were collected and they will certainly be appreciated!!

Congratulations to our trivia winners:

Brian with Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Lee with Compass Travel

Andrea with Andrea's Occasions
