Family Movie Day 2016

The Vedder Group hosted our family movie day in June and had a swimmingly great time! Four different auditoriums were filled to capacity with families and friends all dedicated to “FINDING DORY”. 

Annual Guys Night

“Breezes, Brews and Buddies” seemed to be the theme of our 2ND annual Guys Night at Proof Brewery last month. The weather was perfect, the craft beer was tasty and the laughs were infectious. Our guests also enjoyed a private brewery tour and viewing of the canning process.

Family Movie Day  2015

We could barely contain the excitement of hosting clients and friends at The Vedder Group's annual family movie day in July! Nothing says fun like movies, munchies and minions. Thanks a “MINION” to all our guests for making the day so much fun!

Happy 20th Anniversary

Congratulations to Scott, who celebrated 20 years with Northwestern Mutual in May. Time flies and hairlines recede when you're having fun! 

Guys Night Client Event

The Vedder Group hosted clients for a pre-summer beer tasting event with Tallahassee's own Proof Brewery in May. Everyone was able to sample the different flavors and experience a brewery tour.

Family Movie Day 2014

The Vedder Group had so much fun at our first annual family movie day watching DISNEY BIG HERO 6 with our clients!  We look forward to continuing the tradition...

The Vedder Group sponsors MILES FOR MASON 5K & FUN RUN

Scott Vedder and his team, caring deeply about their community, jumped at the opportunity to become major sponsors and roll up their sleeves to work as volunteers for the MILES FOR MASON 5K & FUN RUN on October 24, 2014. This community wide event was created as a remembrance and fundraiser for the sole benefit of the Mason Rhinehart White Foundation. Mason Rhinehart, a sweet second grader and Tallahassee native, tragically lost his life summer 2014.
