Squirrels’ 1940s-Inspired Holiday Party Takes Flight At MAPS Air Museum

The 2015 Squirrels holiday party featured World War II-era planes, a Frank Sinatra-inspired vocalist and a museum full of snazzy-looking Squirrels employees.

Our 1940s-themed holiday party took place at MAPS Air Museum in North Canton, Ohio, on December 11. The party was held in the museum’s hangar among classic military planes and helicopters.

The Squirrels team enjoyed a night full of laughs, cocktails and entertainment, but it also used the experience as a learning opportunity. Museum guides were on hand to educate our team about each individual aircraft, World War II and relics from the time period. The MAPS Gallery of Heroes was also open for our staff to view detailed models and period items depicting the lifestyles and American history of the mid 1900s.

The Squirrels team made sure to look like it belonged in the same room as all of that American history. Employees and their significant others were dressed as aviators, first-class citizens, detectives and various other men and women of the time period. We even had a milk man.

Relive the night with us by checking out some photos below and the rest of the photos on Facebook. Huge thanks to Retro Peacock Photos for taking all of these incredible photos and making us look good.

2015 Squirrels Chili Cook-off dethrones two-time defending champion

Every November, Squirrels employees spend hours crafting their perfect chili for a chance to be the next reigning chili champion. This year, two-time champ Jon Z. handed the trophy off to a fellow Jon—Jon B. The winning chili, “1-800-THREEMEATBLING,” was a mix of ground beef, chorizo, steak, red and green pepper, onion and more.

“I wanted to make a chili as spicy as Drake’s dance moves," Jon B. said. “There’s not much of my chili left in there, so that’s pretty good."

Ashley S. came in second with her rendition of chili appropriately titled “Chipotle.”

“’Chipotle’ paid homage to the smoky heat that is chipotle chili peppers,” she said.

Marinated in Southern Tier Warlock, the beef chili gave the fast food chain a run for its money.

The chili cook-off, now in its third year, saw nine submissions. Chiles of all types were submitted—from sans beans and meatless to Mexican-inspired and multi-meat dishes. Some who didn’t enter the chili cook-off added to the fun with supporting dishes and sweets—cornbread, pumpkin pie and puppy chow to name a few.

As we digest today, we’re already looking forward to next year’s cook-off.
