It's Fat Tuesday!

It's time for that Mardi Gras celebration, but did you know another popular way to celebrate Fat Tuesday is Paczki Day! It’s a Polish tradition to stuff up on paczki — donut-like treats — the day before Lent begins. There are a large population of Polish families around the Chicagoland area where the Elgin office is located, so bakeries all over will be packed with people picking up their paczki. Eat your paczkis or enjoy throwing your beads. No matter what, it's a good day to celebrate wherever you are.

Continuing their trend of holiday celebrations the Austin team acknowledges Fat Tuesday today with a King Cake.

More photos of Austin's events and Elgin's Super Bowl Lunch Party from Friday can be seen on our private Facebook Group page the TRP/HCS Water Cooler.
