Lifetime's Annual Service Project 2010- Park Beautification

This past Saturday, October 9, Lifetime Products employees met at Clearfield City’s Steed Park for Lifetime’s 5th Annual Local Community Service Project. What a sight! More than 800 employees were busy laying sod, trimming trees, leveling baseball diamonds, picking up trash, and much more, to beautify and improve the 23-acre Steed Park for local residents.  

It was a great experience working together outside of our normal everyday jobs to do something to give back and help improve our local community.  It was also a true team effort.  Everyone pitched in to help in some way or another... even Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson was busy trimming trees by the pond.  Me?  I rolled up my sleeves to help stain the pavilion which was a little messy, but fun nonetheless. Clearfield Parks and Recreation coordinated much of the work, and employee team leaders guided 18 large teams working simultaneously on the projects, resulting in a complete park makeover in approximately three hours.

At the conclusion of this beautification project, remarks were given by Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson and Clearfield City Mayor Don Wood.

“There aren’t even words adequate to express my appreciation for what you have done today,” said Mayor Wood. “There are people who drove by here last night, who will drive by tomorrow and think- what happened?” After his remarks, the Mayor presented Hendrickson with a plaque in recognition of Lifetime’s efforts.

Lifetime utilized much of its own manufactured products for the project, including Lifetime folding tables, wheelbarrows, yard carts, kayaks and trailers.

Thanks again to all of our wonderful employees who made this event a success.  All Lifetime employees worked off the clock, earning a credit toward January Profit Sharing, Lifetime’s bi-annual employee benefit program that gives back a percentage of the company’s revenue to each employee.   With everyone pitching in to help, this year's community service project employed approximately 2,400 man-hours, which Mayor Wood estimated to save Clearfield City an estimated $31,200!

Labor Day Fun
I always look forward to Labor Day with such mixed emotions. Naturally, I love having the three-day weekend and having my hubby home for an extra day of fun or to-do projects. But, it also means summer is officially over.:( My son, Nathan, started preschool today so we wanted to spend our Labor Day weekend enjoying the last remaining hours of summer freedom. We took the kids swimming one day and we also took them to Six Flags Fiesta Texas. So much fun! Nathan was tall enough to ride a few of the adult roller coasters this year so that made it even more exciting for all of us. (Wow, there is nothing more heartwarming than watching your child grin literally ear-to-ear all day long from having such genuine fun and thrills!) But, just like my last post, our adventure started off with Lifetime! Its everywhere! To enter Six Fla...
And the Winner of the Picnic Table Is….
... Brett R. of Logan, Utah! Brett is the lucky random winner of our June contest. Thanks to all of you who entered this month. As the winner, Brett will receive one of our new A-frame 6' picnic tables which is maintenance free - it can endure weathering without chipping, cracking, peeling, or rusting. The table also featuresan umbrella hole and folds completely flat for storage. And, since the polyethylene tabletop is stain resistant, spilled ketchup or baked beans will be easy for Brett to clean at his July 4th BBQ this year! Another great feature of this Lifetime picnic table is that it is lightweight and easy to move, whichBrettwill behappy to hear since he actually said in his entry that he was looking for a picnic table that is easy to move around to use on his patio and for camping. He also wanted a table that was eas...
See Lifetime's Factory on Live TV!
Lights, camera, action! It has been another exciting week here at Lifetime. On Monday, Lifetime was featured in a Made in Utah segment on Studio 5, KSL's local lifestyle show. The hour-long show featured a pre-recorded segment (starring yours truly) that was filmed in the Lifetime Store, as well as three live segments with host Darin Adams in our factory. Studio 5 is doing a week-long series to show products and companies that are made in Utah. We were honored they decided to start with Lifetime! Filming the pre-taped piece was SO much fun. Studio 5 Producer, Stephanie, was a blast and great to work with. She was very creative and full of energy. Who knew sipping lemonade on a Lifetime Glider Bench would be so fun? For the live segments, the KSL camera lady, Jen, showed up about 10:00am to get things set up, find a broadcas...
