NHS/AVS Attends The Nutcracker

NHS/AVS Attends The NutcrackerIndividuals and staff members from NHS/AVS Zapp’s Lower Subcontract area had a wonderful and spirited time at the PPG Wintergarden. They braved the cold weather and snow flurries to enjoy the Santa Clause and gingerbread house displays. After the Wintergarden they went to lunch at Eat’n Park where they experienced some true Christmas magic. The group was enjoying a delicious meal when a staff member saw a gentleman from the military also having lunch, so she decided to pay for his lunch with her own money. Not knowing of the kind act, the gentleman decided he was going to pay for the group’s lunch as well. This wonderful gesture reminds us all to pay it forward, especially during this time of year.
