Mustang Annual Picnic Brings Lots of Fun for All

7 Sep

August 18th turned out to be a sunny, pleasant, balmy day for the 163 Mustang employees & family members who attended Mustang’s Summer Picnic 2012. Employees with families in tow started arriving at the park at 10:00 am for a fun-filled day at Six Flags Amusement Park in Agawam, MA.

Some stayed in the park and tested their mettle on rides like the new Goliath roller coaster while others spent the morning cooling off in the water park.

Starting at noon, everybody made their way to River’s Edge Picnic Grove and quickly identified which pavilion was Mustang’s. Employees and their families first posed for a souvenir photo taken by the company’s HR Manager, then dug into a lunch buffet consisting of hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, salads and all the fixin’s.

The kids thought the best part was the portable freezer stocked to the brim with frozen treats like ice cream sandwiches and fudgesicles. It was such a thrill to meet the families of co-workers, some of whom we’d only heard about and now could put a face to a name.

Some families showed up with newly acquired toys such as inflatable bats and colorful capes. The parents wanted to linger over lunch, enjoying the seating in the shade. The kids, however, were eagerly encouraging a return to the main park so as not to miss any of the excitement. By 2:00 pm, the buffet was being packed up and the last of the employees were making their way back to the main park where there awaited costumed characters, spontaneous group dances, a parrot show, a refreshing water park and all the rides and excitement you could ask for.

The following Monday, employees received their souvenir photos of the day and reminisced about the wildly successful 2012 Company Picnic thanks to Mustang and Six Flags.
