Towne Answering Service Annual Employee Appreciation Dinner

Towne Answering Service recently held our 9th Annual Employee Appreciation dinner. We met at Woodside Lodge in Schwenksville, PA for an evening of recognition of our long-term staff; anyone who has worked at Towne for 5 years is invited to participate. This year we had 13 people that qualified and 12 of them were able to attend. Also participating in the festivities were two retirees.

Appreciation Dinner

The evening began with the magician Clive Allen entertaining us with his illusions. There was much laughter as we discovered over and over again that we had no idea how he did it!! The rest of the evening was devoted to good food, fun stories and serious recognition of each person and their contributions to Towne.

Attending the event and their years of service were: Catherine Eckardt (5 yrs), Pam Zitta (5 yrs), Karl Ernst (5yrs), Debra Williamson (7yrs), Andrea Convey (7 yrs), Cassandra Reichenbach (8 yrs) Dale Kemmerer (9 yrs), Nate Gefvert (11 yrs), Rachael Fretz (11 yrs), Sue Stehman (13 yrs), Beth Damelio (16 yrs), and Theresa Horne (24 yrs). Also attending were retirees Maureen Wurst and Mary Ostertag. Scott Taylor (5 yrs) was unable to attend.

When totaling their years of service to Towne, we realize this group has contributed more than 150 years and they are still going strong. When adding in the years that Charlie and I have been in the business, the total is over 200 years of service to our community and beyond. Thanks to all who do such an amazing job of helping Towne to provide the integration of people and technology that enables our clients to serve their own customers with a higher level of their own services.

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.
