Memorial Day Barbeque

Every year Stout treats its employees to a delicious bar-be-que lunch the Friday before Memorial Day. John assumed grilling duty but this year he had some help from his Dad, Bill Greenawalt! The atmosphere is relaxed, as evidenced by Bob Greenawalt enjoying some down time outside while lunch was being grilled. Everyone pitches in to make this festive feast possible, from bringing in delectable treats to providing the necessary kitchen utensils. Once again, it was a smashing success!

Designing 4 Hope donation

Earlier this Spring, Stout donated some fabric to the charity 'Designing 4 Hope'. From their website: "Designing 4 Hope is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping critically ill children and their families by giving them dream bedroom makeovers. Our goal is to design and renovate their rooms providing them with a special place to rest, recover, heal and dream. Our hope is to help them forget about hospitals, treatments and needles for just a little while.". Stout was honored to supply the fabric to bring Julianna's dream bedroom to life.

Kathy Kolb's Retirement Party

After 41 years of loyal service, Stout's beloved associate Kathy Kolb has retired. We are extremely sorry to see her go but wish her all the best in her new adventure called retirement! She surely deserves it! To honor her, Stout celebrated her dedication with a retirement party at a local restaurant. Kathy had a wonderful evening surrounded by family, friends, and colleagues.
