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!

Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game
If theres one thing I love, its college football season. Having attended a large public university where football is its own institution, Saturdays are always spent in front of the TV watching the NCAA action. I hadnt had the pleasure of actually going to a game and better yet, enjoying the tailgating festivities in more than five years until recently.I might as well spill it now. Im a Gator fan I bleed orange and blue. And now is as good a time as any to be a Gator fan. In case you dont follow college football, the Gators ranked second this year and claimed a spot to play the number one ranked Oklahoma Sooners in this years Bowl Championship Series game in Miami, FL. Essentially, this is the Super Bowl of college football. As a Florida native, I knew I had to make it to this game. A couple friends and I were able to g...

Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! Love my Pumpkin Carving Table!
Halloween is such a fun time of year! Who doesnt love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations and my personal favorite pumpkin carving?! So last night, my husband and I set out on our pumpkin carving adventure. My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Over the years, he has helped me get more and more into it as well. Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didnt really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table. We live in a smaller apartment, so this is the perfect table for us. It is super easy to store and fi...
