The solar event of a lifetime came to Nashville, and we at MP&F were lucky enough to have a front-row seat! Our internal “RAA-RAA” Committee planned several surprises to mark this special occasion. Everyone received a special black and white eclipse goody bag Monday morning filled with eclipse safety glasses, glow sticks and “solar snacks,” including Milk Ways, Eclipse gum, Starbursts and Capri Suns. The team then staked out a viewing spot on the lawn of the state Capitol, provided boxed lunches and created the perfect pump-up playlist for when Nashville went dark!

By Katy Varney Mark McNeely likes to tell the story that one of the conditions of my joining MP&F in 1993 was that we would have an annual off-site company retreat. There was no way to predict back then what would evolve into years of company tradition and lore. Mention retreat to any MP&Fer, past or present, and you are sure to get a huge smile and likely several stories that will have you wishing you were there.
