Hoss U Class #88 Graduates!
by Pam Weakland

February 23 through 27, 2015, was an outstanding week. Why?  Because Class #88 of Hoss University spent the week learning, sharing, making relationships, and sharing their talents and ideas. 

This class had a lot of personality and during graduation, the class shared some of their highlights from the week. They found the class has an outdoorsman, an athlete, a mother, a nerd, an independent, and a newlywed.  Each class is given a class project to work on as a group and then do a presentation at graduation.  Class 88 was given the task to research the web site and our application process for flexibility, ease of use, and to market Hoss’s and Marzoni’s as the place to work.  The class did an outstanding job, and I believe we will see some of their ideas put into use. 

In the  class’s words, “We have not only gained new friends, but we have gained new coworkers, new teachers, and new motivators!”  Congratulations and much success in the future!

Hoss Hero - Lori Weaver, Gettysburg
by Michele Taylor, General Manager

Lori WeaverOn behalf of Gettysburg Hoss’s, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize Lori Weaver.  On Friday, February 6, Lori performed the Heimlich Maneuver to save a chocking guest in the dining room. 

The guest completely stopped coughing and lost the ability to breath, and as her table yelled for help, Lori ran to be of assistance.  Lori is a preschool teacher and holds a certification in CPR and First Aid.  After several attempts, Lori was able to dislodge the item.

Her heroic deed didn’t go unnoticed as she was in front of a very full dining room that shared their gratitude towards her. We are very proud to have Lori on our team and thank her for her heroic deed.

Lab Rescue
by Bob Pleva

A short time ago my daughter, Jill, brought home a female black Labrador Retriever to meet our three Labrador grand-dogs, Pete, Frank and Grace. She was a breeder dog and was sent from Philadelphia to our local animal shelter. She had no name, and we decided to call her Bailey. We realized after the first couple of days that we should have named her Houdini after she escaped from her cage, opened the lid on the treat bin, ate a jar of peanuts and the chicken bones left in the garbage can. She obviously had a cast iron stomach and was also very intelligent. She looked chunky from having all of those pups, but we were surprised at her speed and agility on our walks with her and the other dogs.

Lab Rescue
Left to right: Bailey, Frank, Pete, and Grace

After about a month of fostering her, she was adopted by a family in New Jersey not far from where she had been living. The Lab Rescue group has volunteers that meet along the way to complete each leg of the journey. Pretty cool. We set out early Sunday morning to meet our Harrisburg connection named Danny. He was pacing around his car when we arrived and was concerned about the weather forecast. We told him it was no problem and that the storm was coming from the west and wouldn’t hit here until later that evening. Little did we know until we got a text as we were heading home that roads in Philadelphia and New Jersey were all closed due to a major ice storm that came up the coast and wreaked havoc on the region.

With major traffic accidents and travel restrictions Bailey may have been returned to us if they couldn’t find a place for her to stay. Fortunately, four volunteers along the way offered to take her in for the night. Even more amazing was that the adopting family from New Jersey managed to get to their destination to pick up Bailey! They took her home and they lived happily ever after. The end.

Veteran's Day At Chambersburg
by Kyle Coons, Assistant Manager

Here at Chambersburg, for this Veteran's Day, we wanted to make sure we acknowledged every veteran that chose to dine with us.  We gave them the opportunity to sign their name, branch of service, and the years that they served onto a poster board.  They absolutely loved this, creating some great conversations between different generations.  

The crew could not have been happier to say "Thank you" to these great men and women, making Veteran's Day one of the most anticipated and best days to give back to the community.

Lobsterfest for MS 2014
by Nancy Campbell

Lobsterfest for MS 2014 was an extremely successful event. On Friday, September 19, nearly 500 people attended, enjoying food, drink, music and auctions at the Bavarian Hall in Altoona, PA. For the fourteenth straight year, many of the Blair County Hoss’s family members participated in this large local fundraiser which benefits the Keystone Branch of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Hoss’s is one of the major sponsors.  I can’t imagine this event ever happening without the wonderful Hoss’s volunteers who help to make it such a success.

Attendees enjoyed a great meal of either a whole Maine lobster or a Hoss’s filet mignon, complete with steamed shrimp, salads, appetizers, and desserts.  Music for dancing, silent and live auctions are also a big part of the evening’s festivities.  Many Hoss’s family members, friends, and vendors helped by donating product and auction items, by buying tickets, and by volunteering their time and talents.  There are lots of other volunteers from the community, but the Hoss’s crew helps in every aspect of this event including organizing, decorating, preparing and serving the wonderful meals, and then cleaning up after the event.  Many in the community tell us that this is one fundraiser folks truly look forward to attending.

While I co-chair this event with my very good friend and former Hoss’s Manager, Donna Bon, there are many other Hoss’s family members who deserve the credit for their total dedication to this event year in and year out. Hoping that I have not forgotten anyone, I wish to thank the following Hossers (including former Hossers) for all that they did this year. Special thanks to Dan and Donna Bon, Bob and Karen Pleva, Bill and Julie Bratton, John and Rhonda Brown, Mark and Molly Spinazzola, Bill Campbell,  Phil Sukenik, Pam Weakland, Dave Decker,  Chip Gapshes, Rob Billet, Ann McKay, Tami Smith, Troy Horner, Pat Imler, Rich Hollingshead, Todd Hill, Amy Topole, Jim and Sandy Fogle, Craig and Christine Campbell, Nancy Homan, Jenn and Sean Neff, Barb and Rocky Rhodes, Mark Ritko, Tom and Cynthia Smith, Billie Jo and Jake Walls, Krista Soellner, Dan and Valerie Vandrew,  Patty Morgan, Ryan Mazoff, Dan Mutter, Justin Despoy, Adam Clemens,  Tim Schmuck, Bridget Chesnut, Pam Elliott and Betsy (Hoover) Lehman. (Quite a list, isn't it? Now you can see what I mean about all of the Hoss's help.)   

Some of the comments I received from folks who worked this event were: “I think everything went wonderfully. Everyone seemed to have a good time.”  “Great event!  Great Cause!”  “What a great bunch of workers!  Sure good to see everyone again.” and “I love helping with Lobsterfest for MS and can’t wait till next year.  Thank you for letting me be a part of this event.”  You can see from these comments how much fun it is to work with this group.  Their enthusiasm and dedication are so very special to me.

This year's event netted more than $40,000. All of the proceeds go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society which is a non-profit organization working to find a cure for the debilitating disease that effects so many of our loved ones. The National MS Society is dedicated to serving the needs of people with MS and their families. Hopefully, one day soon a cure will be found and events such as this will not be necessary.

Hoss U Class #87 Graduates
by Pam Weakland

"Oh, what a week!" is how I began the graduation ceremonies for Class #87 of Hoss University on Friday, September 12, 2014.  This was one of the largest classes we have had in a very long time. It was a great week with 10 new Assistant Managers and 6 Department Managers meeting faces and learning a lot of details to help with their management duties. 

During the week, the group worked together on two class projects which you may be seeing in Hossland soon!  It is wonderful to see a new group of leaders with such passion and determination.  Good Luck to all and Congratulations!

Hoss’s Wellness Challenge – The Biggest Loser
by Brenda Oakes, Benefits Manager

Hoss’s has always had an important part in communicating wellness to our employees.  We want to give our employees the tools to live healthier lives.  Our company works closely with Highmark, our insurance broker, Seubert, and Lytle Behavior to develop fun and feasible ways to bring wellness into their lives. 

Over the past ten weeks, we had a Wellness Challenge.  Employees voluntarily enrolled and paid a $10 entrance fee.  Over the weeks, there were challenges that they had to complete.  Calling a health coach two times over the period of time earned them 20 points and if they lost or maintained weight or exercised they received points.  Each employee was responsible to enter their points.

At the end of the challenge, if a person reached 40+ points they were entered in a drawing.  The winnings were $290 dollars, and Hoss’s matched the amount and would donate it to a charity of the winner’s choice.  The drawing was held at the Corporate Meeting on July 23.  We had six employees that reached the 40+ points and were entered into the drawing.  They were Betty Duncan from Shamokin Dam, Julie Lohsl from Marzoni’s GW, Tami Smith from Corporate Office, DeAnna Oakes from Central Processing, Chris Reigel from Lititz, and Christy Steele from St. Marys.  The winner was Tami Smith, and her charity was Dreams Go On Therapeutic Horseback Riding.   

Lewistown's Unsung Hero, Carli Boreman
by Dan Isenberg, General Manager

Carli BoremanSunday evening (Father's Day), a family of about 14 diners became alarmed when their littlest member, an infant of several months, began to convulse. In the next few frantic minutes, the baby turned blue and was not breathing.

In all of the confusion, their server, Carli Boreman, instinctively took charge. She immediately blew directly on the baby, which seemed to jumpstart the infant. Because the baby was now breathing, the family declined to perform additional CPR as one of the family members was calling 911.

By this time, I was able to reach their table to see a now non-responsive infant with a very gray body color. Assessing the situation quickly, I heard the EMS unit responding on a nearby scanner. I was amazed to see Carli still in complete control, running her fingers over the baby's chest to stimulate the child as everyone stood back and watched. The baby began regaining color and now had her eyes opened; she was watching Carli talking softly to her.

The baby continued to close her eyes, but Carli would immediately speak quietly but firmly to her as she continued the gentle massage. In the next few minutes, we saw the baby's color return fully, and finally she left out a cry that every mother knows, meaning she was now breathing freely.

The EMS response was great. They examined her, and with the parents' permission, took the little one to the hospital. Carli found a quiet place to sit down and reflect as her emotions finally overwhelmed her.

We received a call from the family several hours later to tell us that the baby was doing well but would remain in observation as they ran tests to determine a possible cause.

Carli will tell you she only did what anyone else would do, but it was Carli that did it, and the child is fine today!

#21-Belle Vernon Hoss Heroes
by Heather Smith, Assistant Manager

On June 16 around 6:00 p.m., we had a guest who choked on her meal. Her name is Ms. Baker. One of our servers, Erick Adams, was dining with us in the booth next to her. When Erick realized she was choking, he sprang into action and performed the Heimlich Manuever, saving Ms. Baker. One of our other employees, Anna Vasquez, who was also dining with us sprang into action to assist and call 911. These two employees are true Hoss Heroes!
