About 37 years ago, Midwest Land Company began a tradition called “End of the year Office Party”.
“We started that to just wrap up the old year with friends and fellow business owners,” Ewing added. “At first it was just downtown businesses, but over the years we’ve expanded to include friends and associates from all around the area.”
Midwest Land Company invites all to attend from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. Friday to enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
“We used to do this on the final workday, Monday – Friday workday,” Ewing mentioned. “But, we kind of figured most people were not going to be working on Monday, so we accelerated it this year to Friday.”
