The Capitol Hill BID held their annual team and family outing on Monday, August 15, at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The weather was not cooperative at times, but that didn’t stop everyone from having fun! Thankfully, our luncheon and awards ceremony was held indoors at the park’s Coyote Creek saloon. The rain stopped just as everything wrapped up inside so that team members could enjoy the amusement park with their families.

Team outings are a great way for the BID to recognize the success of our team members and reward them for their efforts to make the Capitol Hill business district a beautiful destination for residents and tourists alike. After eating a delicious lunch and watching an interactive Bob the Builder stage show, BID president Patty Brosmer and operations director Andrew Lee announced the award winners.

Award categories included:

* Most Improved Clean Team Ambassador

* Green Thumb Award

* Safe Ambassador of the Quarter

* Safe Ambassador Consistency Award

* Clean Team Ambassador of the Quarter

* Most Consistent Team Member

* FISH Award (team member with the most positive attitude)

* President’s Award

* Leadership Award

* Honorable Mentions

After the awards ceremony, the BID held a drawing for cash prizes which team members used throughout the rest of their day at Six Flags. Team members also had the opportunity to speak to the group about how working for the BID impacted their lives. It was inspiring to hear the men discuss their transition from a life of self-destruction and despair to a life as productive, hard-working members of society.

Not only do the awards ceremonies maintain a positive work place environment in the BID, but your support also means a lot to the “men in blue.” Something as simple as a smile, a wave, or even a friendly “hello” on the streets of the Capitol Hill BID help boost our team members’ morale so they stay positive and motivated.
