Five years celebrated at President's Circle



Payworks' 5th Annual President’s Circle trip took place June 10-12 at beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake with a total of 47 staff members in attendance. This year’s festivities kicked off June 10 with lunch at Wayne Gretzky Estate Winery, where attendees not only enjoyed the Great One’s wine but also his signature whiskey. That evening was spent at Bacchus Lounge and Terrace for supper followed by a Ghost Tour of Fort George.
