This year, there 51 employees earned one the 20, 30, 40 and 50 year service awards, including: 38 twenty-year awardees; 10 thirty-year awardees; two forty-year awardees; and one fifty-year awardee.

The 97 guests in attendance at the event enjoyed dinner followed by a presentation by Carmella Huser and Erin Shatara of some of the major events, names in the news, movies and happenings at SLAC during the first year each set of employees started at SLAC. See the story 'What Was Happening 20, 30, 40 & 50 Years Ago?' for some of these interesting details.

“I thought the evening was well-planned and presented,” said Vickee Flynn (CEF), who received her 20-year award pin and gift clock. “HR is to be commended for putting on a memorable evening.”

Later the guest speaker for the evening’s festivities, Roger Blandford, gave a special presentation titled 'Observing SLAC'.

Blandford discussed his observations of SLAC since his arrival in 2003 as the new director of the Kavli Institute at Stanford.

Laboratory Director Jonathan Dorfan congratulated the awardees on their long-term service, dedication and importance to the successes at the Laboratory. Each awardee was presented with a Stanford pin and a special commemorative gift as mementos of their years of service.
