Clark, Campbell, Lancaster & Munson Retreat

The attorneys and management of Clark, Campbell, Lancaster & Munson, P.A. recently met on the Homassassa River for our Attorney Retreat and a bit of R&R.

The first day of the event was packed with discussions about strategic planning, how we can provide better service to our clients and what makes our firm such a great place to work.

The second day was spent on the beautiful Homassassa River. We set out at sun-up for a bit of fishing and fun in the sun. We had perfect weather all morning and by noon, we all caught something. Afterward, we retired to the house for a lazy afternoon of backgammon, napping and just enjoying each others’ company. We finished the night off with some fantastic, fresh-caught fish and homemade slaw, compliments of our great fishermen and Chef Ron!
