On the 25th of August 2016 Maersk Crewing Ukraine held the second Anniversary dinner in order to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Ukrainian seafarers’ employment with Maersk Line. Seafarers were invited with their families to the ceremony dinner in honor of this occasion, which is really significant both for them and for the Company, as 10 years of cooperation is a huge period of time with challenges, success and constant moving towards new horizons.
The event was fulfilled with friendly and positive atmosphere; a lot of memories were recalled from the past: seafarers told about their first steps within the Company 10 years ago and their feelings, when their story in Maersk family had just begun. There were a lot of warm words and interesting discussions about the changes occurred during the 10 years period. It was great to see, that some seafarers become friends in Maersk, that they are open to share their experience and support each other with advice any time.
All participants were honored with memorable gifts from the Company. The appreciation was expressed to them for their hard work and to their families for support and encourage, which helped seafarers to overcome all challenges.
Officers also expressed their appreciation to the Company for smooth cooperation during these 10 years and everybody smiled, that such event should be repeated in future with the same participants, so it is time to start preparations for 50 years Anniversary.
Some of the guests made a surprise for Maersk Crewing Ukraine team: Chief Engineer Andriy Stakhanov and his wife brought tasty cake specially decorated for the celebration. Chief Engineer Oleksandr Penkevych constructed model of Maersk airship named “Maersk Perla” and presented it in Maersk Crewing Ukraine office.
We hope the good tradition of celebrating anniversaries together will be continued and we will meet each other in a few decades again telling interesting stories and laughing.
