As previously discussed on this blog, the MELT Team loves to party together. And the holidays are a perfect excuse to have more celebrations than ever. So earlier this week, we got together to make some memories and some laughter, and in the spirit of everything we hope to stand for, tried to give back a little in the process.
Through a local Angel Tree drive, we got the names of five worthy children to buy Christmas presents for, and then threw in some healthy competition along the way. While shopping for the Angel Tree presents, two teams of MELT ladies raced to get through a long list of tasks and bring back photo proof of their completion. These assignments included (but were not limited to)-
Giving hugs to strangers and stuffed animals alike,
getting in a quick work out,
requesting piggy back rides from random shoppers,
dressing up in holiday cheer,
and showing their true feelings for brand name ice cream.
After both the present hunt and the scavenger hunt were completed, everyone returned to the shop. We wrapped up our presents, ate take out from Cannon Chinese Kitchen, and reminisced (with a whole lot of laughter) about the amazing, joyful, cone filled year we got to have together.
Parties, good food, and helping others are what we specialize in, and we want to see these passions play out when we are with customers and when we are with each other, both while we are open and after hours. The MELT Team truly is a family of people who are all in love with the ice cream and community this shop has fostered, and every one of you who has come in during the past one year and eight months have been a wonderful part of that. So Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, thank you for making 2015 amazing. We hope you all are having as great of a time with friends and family this week as we had with each other a few nights ago.
P.S. A special thank you goes out to Target for letting us run around acting crazy in their store. Couldn't have done it without you.
