My group loves music, sports, and numbers. I made this list of notable October Dates for them.  They are hard working and have become a great team. They have gotten to know each other even though we are in separate offices. It is alot of work, but it becomes alot of fun when you celebrate along with all the hard work!

This is a great time to thank your employees for all their efforts all year long. Employees: get up and pat yourselves on the back!

October is the start of a great 4th quarter, and it is all of you, inspired employees and your hard work and attention to detail that have gotten to this point.  THANK-YOU.

October Themes are here! Special Days to Remember!
