Holiday Party 2009 – Merchants Overseas Style

Posted on: December 21, 2009

This year’s Merchants Overseas Holiday Party was packed with great food, people, and LOTS of wine! Our night was spent eating, drinking, swapping gifts and expressing appreciation for everyone’s hard work throughout 2009.

Since Merchants Overseas has been in business for almost 6 decades, every year is spent acknowledging those that have been dedicated employees for the long term with the gift of wine!

Fun Facts:

  • 16 people have been with the company for over 5 years
  • 4 people have been with the company for over 10 years
  • 11 people have been with MO between 16 and 28 years!

Our Newest and Oldest employees:

Susan Furtado 28 years, Sarah Moniz 1 month

Every year MO supports 1 or 2 local charities, and those who donate are entered into a raffle for a grand prize.  This year our staff supported Crossroads Rhode Island Homeless and Women’s Shelter and The Ronald McDonald House Providence.

This year our winner was Chuck and he won an LCD Flat Screen TV!

What was once started in 1950 by Eugene Wachtenheim has continued down the generations and is still family owned and operated by the Wachtenheim Family:

After the passing of our founder, MO started the Eugene Wachtenheim Distinguished Achievement Award to recognize 1 hard working individual each year for best exemplifying the goals and ideals that EW stood for:

o       Being kind and generous to others

o       Respecting the other person’s position and opinions

o       EW’s belief that the customer is our most important asset ~ the customer always comes first

o       Making “it happen”

o       Following through on individual projects and goals

This year’s winner was Cidalia Melo!
