Useppa Island Employee Christmas Party 2019 - Photos and thoughts by UseppaGin - A big thank you to all the employees who take care of Useppa and a thank you to all the members and homeowners who generously contributed to the Annual Employee Christmas Fund. Seventy men and women work on the island and its shore port Bocilla Marina. The Christmas Party is our chance to honor them. “Skippy” Elgin, known and loved by everyone was named Employee of the Year. Reina Escobar who works quietly and efficiently in Housekeeping was named Employee of the 4th Quarter. Stockings filled with cash or gift cards hung on the tree and were awarded to lucky raffle winners. Cash gifts were distributed based on time of employment, and for long time employees, pins were also given. Island CEO Tim Fitzsimmons received a special pin for 40 years of Island service. Only Gar and Sanae Beckstead with 43 year pins have spent more time nurturing the place we all love. The afternoon was a true celebration of Useppa and its hardworking custodians.
