Pike Nurseries management is pleased to announce the company has combined with Armstrong Garden Centers, its sister corporation in California, to operate under an established Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The plan transfers ownership to Pike Nurseries and Armstrong Garden Centers employees through a defined contribution benefit program.
“The ESOP program allows us to reward our employees for their hard work and longevity with the company,” said Mike Kunce, CEO and Chairman of the Board at Pike Nurseries and Armstrong Garden Centers. “This structure not only enables management continuity, but also ensures the employees who have built and sustained Pike Nurseries and Armstrong Garden Centers play an integral part in the future success of the business.”
In the United States, approximately 4 percent of companies are employee-owned. This rare corporate structure is designed to reward long-term associates and help them build “sweat equity” without any out-of-pocket expense. The ESOP program is governed by multiple entities to ensure it is well-managed and decisions are made in the best interest of the associates.
All other employee programs and benefits will remain constant under the new structure. Employee benefits with Pike Nurseries include opportunities with Armstrong Garden Centers in California, structured training and career development programs, sales incentives, employee discounts, paid vacation and holiday time, beautiful company facilities, a comprehensive insurance program and more.
Listen and Remember, a locally-written production concerning the life and legacy of President Andrew Jackson, ran for thirty-two seasons, moving from a field to it's own stage at the Museum of the Waxhaws, which opened in February of 1996. Sadly, as time tends to do, the cast of the production moved on with their lives, causing Listen and Remember to close after those thirty-two long seasons, making it North Carolina's second most top-attended outdoor drama before it's closing.
Now, the stage of the Museum of the Waxhaws is coming back to life, with generous support from the Union County Arts Council, in a one night only gala event.
The performance for the night is the first-time production of Sassafras Cannon, a dark comedy set in the Civil War period, by internationally published playwright Timothy D. Starnes, and directed by Ryan Fay, notable student director of UNC Charlotte, with this production set to be his last local event before departing to attend a top-level directing study program.
The performance is set for March 28, 0215. The doors open at 7 PM, the show begins at 8 PM, guests will be treated to refreshments and admittance to the museum, along with, most importantly, a seat for the performance all included in the $10 ticket price.
Works by senior studio art major Vera Shulman will be featured in the Smith Gallery. There is no charge to attend the exhibition, which is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and noon to 4 p.m. weekends in the Belk Visual Arts Center. For more information call 704-894-2519.
