"It was nice to see a lot of new faces and old ones return to the picnic," says Sandy Hartman, LTI, Inc. Operations Specialist in Lynden, WA. "We start the planning process in January and, with a lot of help from a lot of people, it turns out fantastic."
Approximately 1,200 Lynden employees, family and friends were in attendance at the 2019 Picnic on Aug. 3, an increase from last year. "The weather was perfect," Sandy says. "Retiree Jeff Kok and his crew did an amazing job cooking the fish. Doug Gustafson celebrated his 40th picnic cooking the beef for us." Although Sandy retired in August, she vows to be back every year to celebrate with her Lynden colleagues which she describes as a "great bunch of people." Thanks to Lynden Retiree Ed Johnson for taking pictures for us again this year!
