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!

Waterproof Tables at Swim School
My son started taking swimming lessons a few weeks ago at a new swim school that just opened by our house. I must say, for a 5-year-old he does really well! He's known how to kind of swim for several years, but we're hoping this new class will help perfect his stroke so he is proficient and completely independent for this summer's swim season. The place where he takes swimming lessons has a pretty thorough system of checks and balances to ensure each child completes the necessary skills in each level. They have an instructor that monitors the swim teacher and student during the lesson and evaluates if the skill is mastered. After the skill is mastered, it is recorded in a logbook and marked off on the child's wristband. I was happy to see when I walked in the first day that they use a Lifetime 4-foot adjustable height table...
Add Charm to Outdoor Living Space with New Lifetime 3-Piece Bistro Set
With the warm weather starting to appear, it's the perfect time to start thinking about sprucing up your outdoor living space. Adding an outdoor eating/entertaining area is always an inviting idea. If you don't have a lot of space, but still want to add some cozy charm to your patio, deck, or porch, our newest product is a great solution. The new Lifetime3-Piece Bistro Set is, I think, one of our best looking tables yet. It is made from a type of polystyrene material that is strong, water- and fade-proof, looks like wood, but is not high maintenance like real wood furniture can be. Its a nice round table with two chairs that is great for eating outdoors on the patio. The frame is powder-coated aluminum, so its lightweight and wont rust in the elements. Once winter comes back, the table and chairs fold-up with an easy single-...
