Scaring up some fun!

No tricks…only treats this Halloween at Focus Forward. The team enjoyed a frightfully delightful Philly-style Cheesesteak buffet for lunch. A terror-ific time was had by all!

Focus Forward Paints the Town

The Focus Forward Team met at the Painting With A Twist studio to unleash their creative spirits! The evening started with adult beverages and a buffet, then the team put on their aprons and picked up their paintbrushes. Everyone composed their own interpretation of a soothing ocean landscape, with step-by-step guidance from the studio instructor.  Hidden talents were revealed, and everyone took home a masterpiece!
