Kerr Tar Team Building Event

The staff of Kerr Tar had a Team Building outing to the Granville Haunt Farm.  We recommend this to our other local governments if you can pull some staff together to go.  We have photos of the maze and before and after photos of our staff! Staff tackled the maze by departments and were timed while trying to locate all 6 check points. The winning department was given first attempt at the Cabin Escape challenge. The event was enjoyed by all that could participate.
