McPhee Plays Ball and Honors Retirements

McPhee celebrated the hard work and dedication of two employees retiring this summer with a friendly Wiffle Ball game and picnic for its staff.

It was a beautiful day to play ball!  McPhee has hosted a summer wiffleball tournament for years sparking fierce rivalry among employees.  This year was no different as the competitive banter started weeks before the game.  Commercial Project Manager Brian Parent led one team while Utility Project Coordinator Rosemarie Nyborg captained the other.

After plenty of foul balls, base hits, and even one home run, Brian’s team took home the victory in a 6 to 5 score game.  The game took place at ‘The Gene Burube Field’ at McPhee’s campus commemoratively named for a former employee.

McPhee honored Terry Beck, our administrative assistant of over 30 years along with Richard Parsons, our Fleet & Rentals Manager.  Both will be missed and hard to replace. A sincere congratulations and best wishes to Terry and Richard in their days off ahead!
