On Friday July 25th we had our annual fun day for staff appreciation. On alternating years we have made it a tradition to spend a day at Shawnigan Lake at Cadillac Ski School. Proprietor Ken Worth has a small summer cottage that he rents out along with his services as a water ski and wake board instructor.
This year was another banner year up at the lake with an excellent time had by all. In addition to water ski, wake board and tubing we also rented paddle boards which were a big hit. I believe nearly everyone tried their hand at it. Andrea, Shawn and I figured out the food and I cooked up burgers and hot dogs for everyone.
As far as awards go, we have a tie for who “won” fun day. Ken arrived first, ate a hot dog AND a hamburger, went skiing, wakeboarding, paddleboarding, hot tubbing, swimming and befriended a stray dog. On the other side, Jen was the last to leave, partook in every event and kept Dave in line the whole time. Honourable mention goes to Megan’s 4 year old son Kieran who was perhaps the best behaved person of the entire bunch – even when his ears ran out of quarters.
As befits a staff appreciation day, Shawn, Roger and myself wish to thank all of our employees for their excellent work and their helpful attitude.
