Employee Party at the KQ Corral

Last Wednesday was Keepsake Quilting’s annual summer employee party and cookout. This year we had a western theme, and our talented coordinators created a ‘KQ Corral’ for all of us to enjoy!

We enjoyed a lunch of grilled BBQ chicken, pulled pork sandwiches, freshly cooked corn on the cob and pasta salad. The food competition had categories for main dishes and desserts, and all entries had to fit in with the western theme. We had delicious entries including: Lane’s Texas Slop (first place), Bonnie’s S’more Cupcakes (tie-second place), Candy’s Cowboy Cookies (tie-second place), and Gloria’s Cowpie Cookies (first place).

Activites this year included judging the costumes, eating (and judging) the entries in the food contest, a shooting corral, lasso contest, a poker table, duck toss, and a dunk tank. The weather was warm, and dunk tank was even more popular than it was last year. Our president Rob and distribution center manager Dawn were great sports and volunteered to get dunked!

Here are some photos from our costume contest, as well as fun ones from the cookout. Click on the first image to scroll through them all!
