 REC Gathers Different Styles to Celebrate Year of Snake Annual Party

DATE: Will be calculated from "Release Start Date" field.

NANJING, China — As a traditional way to end the Year of Dragon and embrace the Year of Snake, employees at Ford Motor Research & Engineering (Nanjing) Co., Ltd. (REC) presented their best styles at the annual party on January 25.
 
Nearly 1,100 employees were involved, dressing up and enjoying a night of eating, drinking and laughing.
 
Four boards featuring Global Week of Caring, Family Day, Professional Women Network and Welfare Committee & English Zone were set up in the hall to promote REC’s company events and corporate culture before the show.
 
For the first time, REC organized a Boss Show to entertain the audience. Dave Schoch, president, Ford Asia Pacific and John Lawler, chairman and CEO, Ford China along with other executives played drums and waist drums in a performance which did not disappoint the crowds and received rounds of applauds and cheers.
 
The skill teams demonstrated their team styles with diverse performances – a shadow dance performed by Product Development quality was the most creative show at the party; the Professional Women Network gave a slide show featuring different images of professional women; an impressive Peking opera sung both by International Service Employees and Local National Employees brought viewers back to ancient China. The kids’ show and Mexico style dancing gave the party different flavors.
 
Seven work-related awards including long service awards were given out and five lucky draws were conducted at the end of the party.
 
“REC’s annual party was the best in Ford party.” Said by  Thomas Oberlaender, APA Stamping Manager.
 
“It was a wonderful evening. The organizers shall be proud of the planning and preparation. Brilliant night!” said Tim Cleary, an International Service Employee at REC Product Development Digital Innovation.
 
“Special thanks for bringing me in Ford,” said a new employee from REC.
 
While having fun, REC employees didn’t forget the orphans in festival season. Charity auction cards were placed on each roundtable, in a much more casual way people could either donate or buy auction items to raise funds for orphanage educational projects. In the end, 38 employees took part in auction and 21 of them bid successfully and raised 2,980 RMB (USD500) from the silent auction.
