IDAHO FALLS — Thousands gathered outside Melaleuca Global Headquarters Thursday evening for the company’s annual summer picnic.

Employees, their spouses and children are treated to a big party every July. This year’s festivities, all of which were free, included all-you-can-eat food, horseback rides, carnival games and prizes, mechanical bulls, bouncy houses, rock-climbing walls and other attractions.

Over 100 prizes were also given away, including big-screen TVs, yard furniture, Playstation systems, gas cards and grand prize trips.

Melaleuca CEO Frank VanderSloot has said he throws the party every year to thank his employees for building a strong business. He credits them for the company’s success and wants to give them a chance to get to know other Melaleuca families.
