Second Annual Gingerbread House Competition

Last week, the Staff and Partners at Graham Scott Enns LLP participated in our second Annual Gingerbread House Competition. There were 15 entries this year, which was great to see! All of the houses were amazing, some were truly inspirational, but as this was a competition, we had to crown a winner!

Everyone voted for their top three choices, and while it was a tight race, three houses were victorious!

In first place was Lisa – What’s UP for Christmas

In second place was Tara – Beautiful White Masterpiece

And in third, Michelle – Reindeer Farm

Every submission had their own unique style, which made them all winners in the end. Congrats to all who entered!

 

Thank you to the Social Committee for organizing such a fun event!

Christmas Care Donation

A big thank you to the Staff and Partners at Graham Scott Enns LLP on their annual donation to the Christmas Care program!

Staff are encouraged to make a donation of toys and food, which is then graciously matched by the Partners to make sure that everyone has a good Christmas this year!

This year’s total donation was over $1,200! Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to the Christmas Care drive, and thank you to Courtney and the rest of the Social Committee for organizing!

GSE Annual Holiday Party 2021

Last week, Graham Scott Enns held their Annual Holiday Party to mark the end of a long year.

While things were a little different this year, it was still a great way to connect with friends and family, and to celebrate together, as best we can, this festive season!

Thank you to the Social Committee for planning such a fun and festive event!

Congratulations CFE Writers!

Graham Scott Enns LLP would like to congratulate all successful CFE writers on their incredible accomplishment!
We are proud to acknowledge our own successful writer, Eduard Aslani, who has completed this incredible career milestone. Congrats Eddy!

Wishing You All The Best

The partners of Graham Scott Enns LLP wish fellow partners Bill Luyks and Megan Siemens along with manager Michael Helder well, as they leave the firm to form a new partnership, Luyks Siemens Helder LLP.  While we have all greatly enjoyed working together over the years, the time has come to explore new opportunities to meet our mutual goals of providing excellence and quality in client service.

Clients currently working with Bill, Megan and Mike will be contacted over the coming days and weeks to discuss the best path forward to support their accounting and taxation needs.  The change will be effective January 1, 2022.

We thank all our clients for your support during this time of transition and look forward to serving you for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Small Business Week

This week October 17-23 is Small Business Week.

Did you know that 98% of businesses in Canada are considered to be small businesses whereby they employ fewer than 100 paid employees?

GSE is a proud member of Elgin County’s small business community!

Springwater Picnic Lunch!

Earlier this week all Firm Members gathered on a beautiful fall day at Springwater Conservation Area for a picnic lunch, lawn games, and a walk. We’ve missed gathering as a large group over the last 18 months and enjoyed the opportunity to spend time together away from our computer screens.

Similar to many other employers, we are working on our new “normal” work environment, but what’s important to all of us is to maintain our culture and remain connected.

 

 

 

 

 

 

GSE Baseball Day

This past Friday, GSE held their first ever baseball game! This was a great opportunity to meet new staff, and to socialize outside of the workplace. This family friendly event brought together Staff, and Partners from both offices for some fun in the sun, followed by a tasty BBQ dinner! Congratulations Team 2 on your win! Thanks to the Social Committee for putting on such a great event!

 

Sometimes accounting is a walk in the (ball) park!
