50 years ago, Bill Derrick Sr. with his wife, Mary Ann, at his side started Derrick Construction in the basement of their home on their farm outside of New Richmond. Last night, July 27th, 2017, on a gorgeous day we celebrated 50 years of being in business with our all our employees, clients, trusted vendors, friends, and community members. With 400+ in attendance all celebrated our achievement of surviving and thriving during the ups and downs of the past 50 years (many more ups than downs).
There were many stories and much reminiscing among the many who attended. The night was highlighted by a fantastic speech by founder, Bill Sr., and the presentation of a proclamation from state senator Sheila Harsdorf and state assemblyman Adam Jarchow to the Derrick Family upon the celebration of this great achievement.
All of us at Derrick Companies would like to thank all who attended and all who have sent their well wishes and we also thank our many, many, many customers, vendors, communities and of course our dedicated and loyal employees who have all helped make this celebration possible.
