Saturday night was a fun-filled Western themed barbecue in the Havana Room at the host hotel, The Tropicana. The entertainment was provided by Tim Gabrielson with his blend of comedy and magic, which left everyone amazed.

There was also plenty of free time for everyone to explore and enjoy Las Vegas and the surrounding area.

Company leaders called the weekend a special celebration and the perfect way to pay tribute to the 60 years of leadership of both Fred and Pete Bursch.

They thanked company staff, their families, and their clients who have made this all possible.
