We have all been very busy this past year, so slowing down and getting into the Thanksgiving holiday spirit may be a little tough. Let’s take a trip down memory lane to mid-November 2002 at something called a “Turkey Bowl”.

I had just joined the DL Howell team when Denny invited me to their annual Turkey Bowl event. It was a rough touch football game to get your appetite up before the big Thanksgiving dinner. As it turns out, I am better at photographing and documenting sporting events than sports itself.

Please enjoy a few throwback photos from the game! Remember, this was about 20 years ago, so all of the guys in these photos are in their early thirties.

The game was four on four. Things started strong, and these young engineers had the energy to run up and down a field. Strategy was important to them, but it didn’t really make a difference in the outcome of the game.

After attending the Turkey Bowl and learning more about DL Howell, I knew that this company was one that I wanted to grow with. Now, 20 years later, I’m sitting here writing a newsletter about one of the very first events I attended at DL Howell. Back then, we were a team of fewer than ten people. Today, we are a company with over forty engineering, land surveying, and administrative professionals. Our company/family is just a little larger now, but the feeling I have for the company I work for and all of the people I work with remains the same. As we continue to grow, we are always looking for good, hard-working people to join our team. Feel free to contact us if you are interested. 😊

Enjoy the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities and have a great, relaxing time with your family at home, but don’t forget those work family members! It’s a great thing to be able to make fun memories with them as well.
