Over 500 Lifetime Employees Beautify Two Parks and a Cemetery in West Point

westpoint_service_blog.jpgWhat another great service experience last weekend! On Saturday, September 17, the remaining 500 Lifetime employees (who did not attend Ogden’s Service Project on September 10) helped clean up Loy Blake Park, East Park and West Point City cemetery in West Point, Utah to participate in Lifetime’s 6th Annual Employee Community Service Project. Between both projects, we dedicated approximately 2,700 man-hours, saving both cities thousands of dollars in labor to accomplish complete park makeovers.

These projects included everything from installing a drainage system in the playground area that was collecting water, cutting tree rings, leveling headstones, replenishing bark, rebuilding a fire pit to painting playground equipment and picnic tables. It was quite a site to see so many people working together to make the parks and cemetery a little nicer than when we arrived.

Typically, Lifetime employees annually participate in a large group project off the clock to join forces and give back to neighboring communities, earning a credit toward Lifetime’s employee benefit program that gives a percentage of the company’s revenue to each employee. This year, with the celebration of our 25th anniversary, we increased our efforts to undertake beautification projects in four separate areas on two separate dates. Lifetime strongly believes being a good corporate citizen is vital to the local community.
 
West Point City Mayor Erik Craythorne said, “West Point City greatly appreciates the service of the volunteers from Lifetime Products. The vast improvements they are doing will be recognized and treasured for years to come. We appreciate having Lifetime Products and its remarkable employees as members of our community. On behalf of the all the residents of the city, especially the children, I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Lifetime Products and all the employees for their service.”
 
The service project concluded with sack lunches (with 150 remaining donated to the Ogden Rescue Mission and St. Anne’s Shelter in Ogden) and I can only imagine everyone who left that day, felt a little better inside. If you live in Davis County area, we hope you take time to check out and enjoy the newly transformed parks and cemetery!

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...
