Connie and Don Osborne used to receive gifts — lots of gifts — at the Houchen Bindery Christmas party.
It was tradition. The Osbornes, who have owned Houchen Bindery in Utica, Neb., for 36 years, hosted a party every year and accepted gift after gift from their 30 to 40 employees, or “team members,” as they call them.
