On December 19, AIEC staff celebrated another annual holiday themed event, the Ugly Sweater Contest. The contest provided the perfect excuse to dig deep in the closet and turn an ugly garment into the sensation of the season. Retired employee, Mike Henry, judged the sweaters and decided the ugliest sweater (1st place) was worn by Kathy Feraris. The “uglier” (2nd place) sweater was worn by Sandy Wolske and Dan Gerard took home 3rd place. The AIEC had a great time turning the celebration into a friendly competition with hilarious results. Snacks and laughs were enjoyed by all. A Secret Santa gift and cookie exchange followed the party.
