VIDEO # 12 - 2015 
Family Business Surprises 40-Year Employee With a Xmas Gift of a 1972 Corvette
Wahpeton, North Dakota, December 1st, 2012 - On December 1st, 1972, Mr. Mike Boock accepted a new job offer. Forty years later at the 2012 WCCO Belting Holiday Social in Wahpeton, which was held on the same date Boock originally started working with the Shorma family businesses, he received a special thank you for his decades of dedication and hard work from the Shorma family... a fully-restored 1972 Corvette.

All of the employees attending the party, including Boock who is the current Shipping and Receiving Manager of Shorma-owned WCCO Belting in Wahpeton, were led to believe that a small program and comical "roast" were the special events of the evening. Yet WCCO President Thomas Shorma (speaker on video), whose father started the business in 1954, had a surprise in store. As the program was concluding, he gave Boock one last gift box to open in front of over two hundred family, friends, and coworkers. The anticipation in the room quickly thickened as Boock, with a look of question on his face, pulled out a small model car and car key. At that moment, two other Shorma siblings in attendance opened the back doors of the Wahpeton Eagles Club, a rumbling engine was heard, and driven into the room was a fully-restored 1972 Corvette that matched the model and key in Boock's hand.
