El Bat√°n Christmas party and 2009 staff recognitions

El Batán hosted its annual Christmas and holiday party on 11 December 2009 at Ex Hacienda La Resurrección, a nearby celebration hall. The event started off with an address from CIMMYT DG Tom Lumpkin, followed by staff recognition for commendable lengths of service and outstanding performance. Everyone was treated to a delicious meal, which provided fuel for the dance floor, and as colleagues boogied to live music they congratulated each other on another year of hard work and success.
