Lether and Associates 2019 Christmas Party and Curling Event

The holidays are a special time for Lether and Associates. In addition to our annual firm meeting, the firm enjoys our holiday Christmas decorating party and our annual out-of-the-office group activity. These activities in the past included a scavenger hunt at the Semiahmoo Resort in 2015, an Iron Chef cooking competition in 2016, and a wine tasting and winery tour in 2018.

In 2019, we decided to do something a little more athletic. Drawing on our northwest roots and love of Olympic winter sports, the firm held a full-day curling event. Everyone had an opportunity to learn how to curl at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle and a little friendly competition.

We followed up on the curling with our annual tree decorating event. It was a great day enjoyed by all. Happy Holidays to everyone who participated and of course to all our clients, family, and friends.
