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!

Scrapping old Memories; Making New
Scrapbooking for 3 days straight maysound like a weird form of torture... but even after the paper cuts, late nights, and reeeeally early mornings,I look forward toittwice a year. My familys crazy little tradition is called "Scrapbook Weekend". If youre anything like me; you have a busy schedule, a suffering photo album, talkative friends and family, and an endlessappetite for good cooking. Scrapbook Weekend givesme the chance to learn new layouts, trade materials, or just catch-up on all my photos. Twice a year, all my aunts and cousins (about 18-20 people total) drive to my moms house with cars full photos, paper supplies, and the fixin's for some great food. We load all the food in the fridge, spread out our cutters, paper, pictures and embellishments on about 6 or 7 Lifetime tables, and camp out for 3 days stacking page...

A proud American manufacturer. Our American Roots
During this time of the year with all the barbeques, fireworks, apple pies, and small-town parades that feature one lame local advertisement after another (did I just say that?), its easy to look over the reason for the wonderful holiday weve reduced to The 4th of July, or INDEPENDENCE DAY as I prefer to call it. This is a great country. Not only have any of my grandparents and long-past relatives fought for the freedoms and liberty we have, but Ive been blessed with the ability to be raised in this beautiful countrydiverse and unique as it is. From the very beginning, its been a country of promise and opportunity for manyand, from our founding, Lifetime Products has been a proud American manufacturer. <...
