On Thursday, September 9, 2010 Jonas Software celebrated their 20th anniversary with an evening full of activities. Staff of the Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada head office attended an evening event at a local restaurant and the turnout was astounding. Over 120 employees from all divisions of the organization, Club, CHO and Construction, joined together along with the founders of the Company, Gary and Mary Jonas.
Mary Jonas expressed their feelings after the evenings events, “It was great seeing some of our original Company family and friends; and fun meeting some of the new energetic crew! The slide show brought back some fond memories.”
Twenty years is a significant milestone for the Company, who opened its door on September 9, 1990. The evening was filled with speeches, awards presented to the founders, a past and present photo slideshow and staff raffles to give away an iPad, amongst other things.
