Subject: We Have Fun!
When Alex, Doug and I visited Olympic National Park a few years ago, I stumbled upon their “passport” program which gives kids (and adults, if you’re so inclined) a passport to have stamped when you visit a national park. I’ve always enjoyed being outdoors and learning about the natural world. I think visiting my grandparents in Montana really made me appreciate being in a remote area along a stream or small river. I can only imagine what it must have been like as a frontiersman.
We’re fortunate to have a great national park system that ensures everyone will have the opportunity to see nature preserved in its natural state. Not only can you enjoy the great outdoors, but you can learn, too. They have introduced all kinds of technology to help you experience and better appreciate the plants and wildlife. The visitor centers have excellent information and interactive displays to enhance your visit to a national park. Additionally, the Internet has made things accessible to those that aren’t actually able to go to the park. Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of visiting a number of our country’s national parks; and as a result, I’m hard pressed to pick a favorite. What’s yours?
I want to thank everyone who came out and helped IT Radix celebrate our 10-year anniversary. It’s been amazing! As I was reflecting upon the history of IT Radix and our core values, I realized that somehow, we let a very important core value slip by—specifically, to have fun. I truly love what I do because for me, it’s fun. I’ll admit not everything is fun; but overall, I enjoy being part of IT Radix and strive to make it fun for those of us who work here as well as all the people we touch—our clients, our vendors and those who we simply meet. So, I’m pleased to add “Have Fun” to our list of core values…here’s to at least 10 more years of fun!
