Chugach Alaska Corporation’s annual Halloween Celebration has grown to epic proportions, and this year was no exception. As in years past, employees and their families were invited to attend, dress up and celebrate the holiday in spook-tacular fashion with fun games, cake and, of course, lots of candy.
The Chugach offices and boardrooms were transformed into landscapes ranging from the macabre to the lighted hearted and whimsical. After navigating our decorated headquarters, attendees were treated to a cakewalk, in which costumed participants eagerly walked around a numbered circle with scary music filling the air. Then, with the music abruptly stopping, a number was called out, and the individual standing on the lucky number won a cake!
After the children secured a cake, parents and their costume-clad children toured the headquarters and—just in case an entire cake wasn’t enough—enjoyed a traditional round of trick-or-treating. Employees, in costumes of their own, greeted the children and filled bags with an assortment of tasty treats. Smiles and sugar were definitely had by all.
New to the Chugach team and this annual festival, Chugach’s Events Coordinator Dee Pletnikoff was very pleased. “It was so much fun! Seeing all the families and kids dressed up and enjoying themselves was very heartwarming.”
Thank you to Dee and all the employees who embraced the holiday and made for another amazing year, and we’ll see you next year.
