The Lycos Team Does It Again
There's no arguing the holidays are the best time of year. Beautiful decorations, delicious food, ugly Christmas sweaters, and of course, holiday parties. Here at Lycos, we work hard day in and day out, but don't let that fool you. We still know how to have some fun. This year, our annual holiday party was held at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Council Bluffs, IA and it was a night to remember. Full of good food and good drinks, our team celebrated the holiday season in the best way possible: all together.
Our reserved space was fully equipped with our own bar and buffet table filled with yummy appetizers, a prime rib dinner, delicious desserts, and of course, lots of alcohol.
After dinner, we all played a fun white elephant-esque gift exchange game. The gift we were exchanging? Casino chips of all different values ranging from $1 to $100. And then it was off to the races! AKA the casino. There was money gained, money lost, but most importantly, lots of fun.
Overall, it was a great night and a great way to spend time together to close out another awesome year.

Employee appreciation is defined as an unofficial holiday to recognize, praise, and thank employees for all of their hard work to the company.
Here at Lycos, we believe every employee on our team plays an important role in the company's success. Simply put: we wouldn't be where we are today without them. From the manufacturing team, to the finish installation crews, to our office staff, we appreciate every one's hard work and dedication.
This past June, to show our gratitude, we held our employee appreciation party at The Mark in Elkhorn, NE.
Is there anything better than spending a Friday afternoon eating good food, drinking beer, and bowling with your favorite co-workers?
From 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM, we all got to kick back, relax, and enjoy quality time together. Teams of 6 were randomly assigned across 10 lanes with each team playing 2 games. And of course, we had a competition. There were three prizes given to three teams: first place, second place, and last place. Whoever had the highest average score of all bowlers took the prize.
There were games lost, prizes won, employee gifts, and yes, even a group photo.
Thank you to all of our wonderful employees who came out and celebrated with us.
I know we can't say it enough, but thank you for your valued support throughout the year. We appreciate you and all that you do.
