Our Employee Appreciation Dinner Was A Real Testimony To The Towne Culture

dinner-croppedOn Sunday, October 16, 2016, Towne Answering Service held our 10th annual Employee Appreciation Dinner!

Any employee having worked at Towne for 5 years or more is invited to attend. This year we honored 14 current employees and 2 retirees at our gathering. In today’s world of people always looking for the ‘next’ job opportunity, that is an amazing testimony to the culture that has been created at Towne over the years. Our people do a great job of providing unsurpassed customer service in a friendly and professional manner and they love being able to help our clients and their customers.

An amazing evening of food and fun was enjoyed by all. Charlie and Deb Crown were able to extend their appreciation to all of their people that provide the excellent service for clients 24/7/365, whether it be on the front line or behind the scenes. Although there were many serious and earnest words spoken as gifts were presented for years of service, there were many fun gifts presented as well.

In the spirit of ‘What happens at our dinner, stays at our dinner,’ we can only suggest you guess  who earned the prized fun gifts for wearing many hats, having a headset that is too large, being perky and on and on…  In the same vein, we may sell copies of the song that was written and performed by two of the attendees that describe a day at Towne!

We were able to honor Theresa Horne for 25 years of service to Towne and still going strong!!

After looking at the picture that was taken of all the attendees, Deb added up the accumulated years of service and came up with an astonishing 225 years of combined service to Towne! Thanks to everyone for a job well done! We are already looking forward to next year’s event!

About Deb Crown

Towne Answering Service was established in 1968 to provide answering services for medical and commercial clients in the southeastern Pennsylvania area. Utilizing the best technology available at the time (the time was 1968 and the technology was a switchboard), Towne was able to establish a very faithful clientele, the majority of whom are still with us today. As time passed and technology advanced, so did the equipment. The answering service equipment evolved from switchboards to a basic computerized system with handwritten messages. From that, we were able to move to a fully computerized, paperless, state-of-the-art messaging system with digital lines and switching and were able to partner with our clients and provide a higher level of service.
