Dragon Boat Festival Celebration
In celebration of the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, TPCO America employees gathered together to share cultures through story and food. During a shift change, Production manager Liu Jinhai and Human Resources manager Vicki Daniels called a companywide meeting. First, Manager Liu took everyone back to the days of The Spring and Autumn Period in China, over 2500 years ago, to share the story of statesman, academic and poet Qu Yuan. Covering thousands of years of history in just a few minutes, Manager Liu recalled the fabled story that laid the groundwork for Mrs. Vicki Daniels to introduce TPCO America employees to the traditional food eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival, Zongzi (rice cake in bamboo leaves). Mrs. Daniels also showed off pictures of TPCO's dragon boat team racing in the Tianjin Municipal Dragon Boat Race.
