Dr. Bernie and her staff love our clients and patients. We thank you for your trust and loyal support. Up until this year, 2020, we gave a party for our clients in June. Dr. Bernie and her staff worked hard to keep her patients healthy and she needed to let off steam and have fun!
COVID KILLED THE CLIENT APPRECIATION PARTY DUE TO MASKS, SOCIAL DISTANCING, RESTRICTION ON SOCIAL GATHERINGS INSIDE, AND CATERING PROTOCOLS.
The first year theme was Hawaiian Luau, with a DJ, pineapples, Hawaiian punch, decorations, dancing, leis, and wide brimmed hats, colorful Hawaiian shirts, and giveaways, free raffles, and prizes.
The second year theme was country hoedown, BBQ, country line dancing with the same DJ on our spacious lawn, a large tent and giveaways, free raffles, prizes, and karaoke.
The third year theme was Rock an Roll 50s and the DJ played all of the hits to include Elvis, Frank Sinatra, and Fats Domino. We ate sliders, casseroles, milk shakes, fries, and jello. We danced the twist and the slide.
The fourth year theme was the 80s. It was so well received that we had the party at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station. The movie "Back to the Future" played on a screen while we ate buffet style and danced to the music from the 80s played by our DJ.
The fifth year theme was Mardi Gras! We had cajun food, dirty rice, jambalaya, sliders, and yummy desserts. The DJ played Mardi Gras Blues and Jazz while the staff started a parade of costumed partiers.
The sixth year theme was Paws around the world. We showcased pet breeds from nations all over the globe. We had our DJ playing music from these nations and our caterer provided delicious finger food from these nations in order to bring their culture and styles to the Haddam area.
