Over dinner at Van Alstyne’s quaint Durning House, many of the professionals responsible for Brooks & Associates’ 9th successful year came together to celebrate the holiday season and the team camaraderie that brought the agency through a somewhat tumultuous 2009 with flying colors.   Amidst the lively conversation, laughs and holiday spirit, long-time friends and new colleagues shared stories and battlescars, and looked forward to the New Year.

When it came time to reflect on the past 12 months, Roger and Virginia, company founders, chalked the year up as one of the more challenging of the past decade.  “It is truly the power of the people here tonight that kept our clients well-served and our agency strong,” Virginia remarked. “We’ve all been blessed to have the opportunity to work together for another year.” 

Roger’s PR advice for the New Year?  In keeping with Julianuary, the unique “Merry Madagascar” celebration – “Stay off the Naughty List!”

Here are a few snapshots that highlight the evening’s fun.
