DTB Hosts Annual Summer Picnics for Employees and Their Families


Dayton T. Brown, Inc. (DTB) held its annual summer picnics at two of the company’s locations in August. These much-anticipated events once again provided the opportunity for employees and their families to make new friends, play games, eat great food, win some prizes, and leave with a reinforced feeling of ‘family’ within DTB.

The first was on Thursday, August 5, at the Calvert Marine Museum for the Mission Systems Division employees and their families, located in Patuxent River, MD. Activities included cornhole, Jenga, giant bowling, and whiffle ball yard games, museum tours, a delicious picnic lunch, an ice cream sundae bar, and several prize raffles. This year’s event also included a memorial plaque presentation for Larry Howard, former Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Mission Systems Division who passed away earlier this year. Larry brought tremendous leadership, fortitude, and dedication to growing the operation in PAX River into the Mission Systems Division.

The second was held on Saturday, August 21, at the DTB picnic grounds, adjacent to DTB’s headquarters in Bohemia, NY. Over 350 employees and their families enjoyed water slides, mini-golf, an obstacle course, a carousel, inflatables, and carnival games, as well as a petting zoo and pony rides. Kids participated in children’s races, while the adults enjoyed the Wheel of Fortune game, offering the chance to spin the wheel and win prizes. Everyone enjoyed a fabulous lunch, Mister Softee ice cream, popcorn, and cotton candy while listening to great music.

One of DTB’s guiding principles is a recognition and understanding that its employees are the Company’s most valued assets. DTB takes its principles and company traditions seriously which helps to sustain a great company culture that values employees and their families and demonstrates it with fun events like the annual summer picnics.
