Operations General Manager Arrested
On January 25 Grant Symon, General Manager, Calgary Operations,
Graham Group Ltd. was arrested, cuffed and put on "office" arrest. His
crime? Supporting a great cause! The arrest was part of the Canadian
Cancer Society's annual Jail-N-Bail Program.
Grant Symon was unaware that employees of the Calgary Operations
office snitched on him to participate as a jailbird in the program.
Grant was read his charges by a representative from the Cancer Society.
The charges laid against him were, "requiring fellow golfers to wear PPE
because no one can yell FORE that often!" Grant spent the afternoon in
his office calling his contacts in an attempt to raise money to make
bail for his release.
Grant was a great sport about the event, "supporting the Canadian
Cancer Society is an important initiative that sadly affects all of us.
The Jail-N-Bail program is a fun way to fundraise for the staff and
participants," said a good humoured Grant. He managed to make bail and
raised over $1,300 in support of the Cancer Society taking 4th place as a
Top Jailbird in Calgary.
The Jail-N-Bail Program was adopted in 1988 by the Canadian Cancer
Society and has proven to be an excellent way to raise funds for the
fight against cancer. This year's goal for the Jail-N-Bail program is
$179,000 across Alberta. This was a great effort by Calgary Operations
to support this year's goal for the Cancer Society. Thank you to the
many Graham employees that donated and supported this event!
