"This was the perfect opportunity to celebrate our accomplishments in the communities surrounding our office in Greenville," said Bucky Moore, president of The Wooten Company. "For 75 years, our firm has been serving the infrastructure needs of communities all over North Carolina, and we wanted to take time with our client and employee families here to share in these successes."

In June, the Wooten Company held a similar event for clients, employees and their families of their Raleigh office at a Durham Bulls' game, and the firm will hold another later this summer with the Hickory Crawdads for clients, employees and families of its Hickory and Asheboro offices.
