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!

Indoors at the Outdoor
For the past several years our company has participated in the Annual Outdoor Retailer Show at the Salt Palace in Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. You’ll find the show filled with aisle after aisle of camping gear, climbing gear, custom water craft, outdoor apparel and the like. This year at our booth you would have also found our sweet Fold-Up Utility Trailer and our convertible Yard Cart.But anyone who’s been to a trade show knows that besides touting your own wares, half of the reason you’re there is to see what everyone else is doing. So while meandering through the multitude of retailers just trying to keep up on relevant trends, I happened across some of our tables. A configuration of several card tables made for a very practical and common use of our product – a convenient meeting area to discuss the business of the day....

I had the opportunity to go toa gamethe other nightagainst the Atlanta Hawks. It was one of the first timescoming back sinceIcollaborated with theLifetime Store to plan the area in October.

Fans leftstill hopeful though. I think we know that the Jazzwill get back on their winning streak soon! When putting together the plan for Bear's Backyard, we were faced wi...
