Team AEW comprised of employees, friends and families, had a great afternoon at Jimmy John’s Field on Sunday, August 13, 2017.
AEW’s Employee Activity Committee (EAC) did another great job of organizing our second annual family outing at Jimmy John’s Field in downtown Utica where the Birmingham-Bloomfield Beavers were taking on the Westside Woolly Mammoths. Michele Ankawi’s son, Calvin, threw out the first pitch, and the Beavers bested the Mammoths by a score of 11 – 6.
The beautiful summer day included a delicious pre-game BBQ luncheon in the patio area, beverages for kids and adults, an opportunity to meet the players and mascots and participate in the large flag ceremony at the start of the game, grandstand tickets to the game, and the kids had the opportunity to run the bases immediately following the game.
Jimmy John’s is a perfect venue for families, and many employees brought theirs to enjoy the day’s family-friendly activities. The patio was the perfect spot to enjoy the delicious BBQ luncheon.
Special thanks to our EAC members, and to AEW’s Board of Directors for the very special family event. Jimmy John’s is in its second year of operation, and is a great place for families to enjoy a number of fun activities in addition to cheering on their favorite team.
