40 Years In Business

1st Lake would be having its Quarterly meeting with all management & financial team members in attendance, but this occasion was special.  In attendance were the company owners, operators, onsite management and maintenance.

Employees enjoyed a 30 minute video slideshow complete with early architectural sketches, aerial views of original job sites, and apartment homes furnished with wicker to the hilt! Also included were company picnics, holiday parties, community outreach and promotions, and publications and newsletters (Lake Living and What’s Happening Lakely!) All set to jazzy tunes such as Staying Alive by the Bee Gees, Celebration by Kool and the Gang and Right Here by Jesus Jones.

The founders of the company stood and gave speeches regarding the company’s history and expressed their overwhelming gratitude in help turning a company which started out of a trailer into the over 8500 unit housing provider it is today.  For the future, the founders spoke about regional management on the horizon and stated, “The younger generation is really going to make this company grow in the coming years.”

1st Lake employees took home many awards and door prizes.  What a great 40 years and more to come.
