    Thursday was a day of celebration and remembrance at Dant Clayton.  Gathered in our Algonquin Aluminum Plant, all team members joined together to combine two special events: our Fall Chili Cook-Off and 2nd Annual Car Show in honor of a beloved employee, Mr. Kenny Williams.

    Despite the gloomy weather, spirits were high as employees checked out a selection of cars and voted for their favorites in various categories. All entries crossing their fingers for the Best of Show award.

    Team Member Choice Award: Eric Goss, 1967 Chevy Custom “Bourbon Mobile” (Pictured below)

    There was a record amount of chili entries this year and several desserts, but only the top three winners in each category walked away with gift cards, and bragging rights for the year.
