The annual Thanksgiving lunch is one of the special times each year that all of the TyRex companies come together as one – and this year’s festivities included an extra special treat! As part of the “2 Groups, 1 Family” iRex initiative, seven teams signed up not only to work together assembling a Personal Energy Transportation (PET) vehicle, but to then decorate their PET with a Thanksgiving theme. The first annual – and probably first of its kind – PET Decorating Contest was an incredible success, and the projects were truly breathtaking. The volunteer time and energy spent by each team far exceeded expectations, illustrating the imagination, innovation and community citizenship that makes the TyRex family truly unique.
After an assembly completion score, plus votes from Thanksgiving lunch attendees and special guest judges (including PET-Austin president John Rudd) were tallied, the Soaring Innovators (Fabricio Aleman, Marie Harris, John Sansoucy, Ronneece Hall, Yanely Medina, Trey Hall) took first place, just beating out The Turkey Trotters (April Gurney, Cynthia Ferrell, Maria Aviles, Hortencia Hernandez, Jenny Casadas). A heartfelt thank-you goes out to these participants and to everyone who contributed to this event!
