Lynn-based Learning Resources was joined by guests from the USA when it staged a celebratory evening at Lynn Town Hall to mark its 20th anniversary.
Employees, friends and families of the educational toy company marked the occasion with evening of fun and entertainment joined by Rick Woldenberg, chairman of Learning Resources’ parent company in the USA.
Employees past and present attended the event, which included children’s entertainment for the younger guests.
Dennis Blackmore, managing director, Learning Resources Limited, said: “Twenty years in business is a fantastic landmark by any standards, particularly in the face of some of the most challenging trading conditions in living memory. At Learning Resources we have a market-leading portfolio of educational toys that are of the highest quality and which are the brand of choice for teachers and parents alike.
“The team we have assembled here in Lynn is outstanding and I am delighted to be able to celebrate this moment in the company’s history with so many friends and colleagues.
“We’re lucky enough to work in a really fun industry that focuses on children, so it was important to us that this was very much a family celebration with all ages welcome.”
