Newcomb Construction hosted our annual Thanksgiving Feast on Wednesday, November 14th on the third floor of the Spectrum jobsite in Middleton. About 90 people attended including John K. Livesey (the building owner), Newcomb field and office employees, and dozens of subcontractors and suppliers for the project. Hot turkey, gravy, stuffing, rolls, mashed potatoes, fresh fruit, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie were served as a thank you for everyone's hard work on the project.
The past three winters, Newcomb employees have donated one day's worth of their time and talents to Middleton Outreach Ministry, who matched them with local senior citizens in need of some manual labor. Dozens of Middleton residents received visits from our guys, who helped them with household projects like caulking, weatherizing, hanging shelves, changing out faucets, etc. It was our pleasure to give back to our community during the holiday season and to help those who are less able.
Newcomb Construction is honored to have won a Good Samaritan Award for helping those in need. All nominees and winners were announced at a banquet held at the Monona Terrace April 24. The awards honor Dane County businesses for thier actions that go above and beyond their usual operations. Newcomb joined forces with the West Madison Senior Coalition in December to help shovel out the area's senior citizens. Nearly all the office and field employees volunteered a full day's work to help rescue citizens who were physically unable to clear their driveways and sidewalks.
