Pickering’s 2018 Holiday Party Recap

By Rebecca Smith and Gloria Garcia

Our customers may not know this, but our very own Gloria Garcia plans an amazing holiday party annually for all of Pickering  Laboratories’ employees and their guests. This year our celebration was a dinner cruise on the San Francisco Bay!

We cruised out of the Berkeley Marina on a brisk Saturday evening and our vessel was the perfect size for our small but festive group! Commodore Hornblower Cruises did a fabulous job with the party; we were treated to a fun crew and great service! To our delight, it was a perfectly clear evening out on the water! (As you might know, San Francisco tends to have a bit of fog from time to time.)

Here’s a taste of our fantastic views of the Bay Bridge and the beautiful twinkles of the city skyline!

With such an excellent light show out every window, it took some awesome food and a lively DJ to capture our attention inside.  Gloria organized several hilarious after-dinner games to keep the crowd entertained, including a hybrid musical-chairs-scavenger-hunt and a modified hot potato game!

Here’s a great photo of Jim Murphy and Judy Pickering (looks like they found some tasty wine)!

Someone captured a live action shot of Gloria and Rebecca (are we on the dance floor?) to share.

We enjoyed a great night of good friends, fun games, dancing and plenty of holiday cheer! It was a fun way to close out 2018 and ring in 2019. We send our thanks to Gloria again for her hard work – we certainly appreciated the excellent results and we hope you enjoyed the pictures.

From all of us at Pickering Labs, we wish you the very best in the New Year!
