Office life has changed in the light of COVID-19. So how do you throw an office party?

At Davenport Evans Law Firm, in Sioux Falls, SD, it’s been a few weeks since the lawyers and staff have worked side-by-side. While the firm is busy serving clients by phone, email and teleconference, most of the firm’s lawyers and staff are working from home.

A Thank You Drive-Through

With Administrative Professionals’ Day approaching on April 22, the firm decided to get creative to honor their hard-working employees while supporting a downtown eatery and Arts organization. They ordered individual meals from Leonardo’s Cafe at the Washington Pavilion, and organized a “Thank You Drive-Through” in their parking lot. Lawyer Keith Gauer, wearing a mask and gloves, met the caravan of telecommuting employees at the firm’s front steps. He was able to say a word of thanks while delivering a gourmet lunch.

It may be hard to see, but under those masks, there were smiles! We look forward to the day when we can share a meal with our entire team again! Be well, and thanks for all you do!
