The Acts Housing team came together (via Zoom…it is 2020 after all) for our annual holiday celebration. There were gifts. There was a gingerbread house contest made possible by Community Action’s Gingerbread Extravaganza. There were the first-annual Acts-y Awards.
We were honored to sponsor Community Action of Rock County’s Gingerbread Extravaganza this year, and our celebrity judge was the one and only Marc Perry, Community Action’s Executive Director, who will also be joining the Acts Housing board in 2021! Just remember…when you put a bunch of people who live and breathe housing into a house-building contest…you’re going to get some creative and fabulous creations!
Congratulations to our Best In Gingerbread Show winners:
First Place: Favi, who may have gone over her construction budget, but who was 100% inspired by “Buy A Home, Build A Community”
Second Place: Sheila, who, as an Acts homeowner herself is celebrating her first Christmas in her new house. Sheila’s gingerbread neighborhood will be enjoying her Puerto Rican cooking – she even included a pig roast!
Third Place: Yaya, whose landscaping and trees cinched the title, and whose kids were ready to eat her house before the contest even started!
The Acts-y Awards
The Acts team also enjoyed the first annual Acts-y Awards. Lots of amazing work was done this year, despite it being a dumpster fire! Congratulations to all members of the team on maintaining your focus on Acts’ most important capabilities: Family Service Excellence, Operations Excellence, Forming & Building Relationships, and Talent & Culture.
While we usually focus on our amazing Acts families, once a year this incredible team deserves a pat on the back. As you can see, they’re enthusiastic, passionate, creative, and fun…all qualities that help Acts fulfill its mission year after year!
