Having fun with the Terra-Petra Gang at Casa Bianca in Eagle Rock, CA

September 27, 2010

Due to the nature of our work at Terra-Petra it is not unusual for us to go weeks on end without seeing every member of the team.  Since we’ve all been very busy as of late,  we haven’t had an opportunity to slow down enough to just be able to catch up with one another.

Fortunately, this past Saturday night we were able to do just that. Terra-Petra employees, spouses and children alike were able to make it out for a casual evening of pizza and wine (wine was for adults only of course) at Casa Bianca restaurant in Eagle Rock, CA. Casa Bianca proved to be a gracious host for our fun-loving group. Serving up huge antipasta salads, some of the best thin crust pizza in L.A. and home-made cannolis and tiramisu they made sure no one went home hungry.

Most of the evening was spent catching up with everyone. This evening it was really nice because we also had a chance to meet some new faces.  Our Methane Barrier Inspector, Christian Coronel brought his son Anthony, while Supervising Inspector Dan Valdez brought Christina and their girls Delaney and Brenna.  Of course the kids were more than happy to help us finish the pizza. Denise (our accountant) introduced the group to her husband Dan. It was also great that our Project Designer Fernando Monay and his wife Miriam were able to make it out. They are expecting their second child on October 7th and will soon have their hands full tending to their little ones.

Our General Manager Hugh Avery (and his wife Zsuzsa), Engineering Geologist Alex Feucht (and wife Kuan), PE John Conaway (and wife Judy), Project Manager Justin Conaway (and wife Robin) and other Lead CADD Drafter Richard McClanahan were all in good spirits as well. The few members of our team that couldn’t make the dinner were missed.

Of course John (Conaway) had to get up and give a light-hearted toast before the night was through (what he does best). The festivities wrapped up around 10:30 pm with a round of hugs, goodbyes and a feeling that we all need to do this again soon!
