Employee Appreciation Day: Excavator Rodeo

On August 28th, U.S. Water Services Corporation (U.S. Water) Region 3 put on our first annual Employee Appreciation Day luncheon with 30 employees in attendance as well as the FGUA representatives who we work with to operate several water and wastewater plants in the area. We were able to clear out the large covered carport in the backfield of the Lehigh Acres Wastewater Treatment Plant to host the event. A U.S. Water banner was hung as well as a brand-new banner donated by a local print shop Southern Style Graphics and Tees which promoted our 2020 Excavator Rodeo competition and sponsors. Employees gathered to take group pictures in front of the banners. With tables and chairs spread out, fans to keep us all cool, and some casual county music in the background, we enjoyed a relaxing lunch together, with some employees from different departments meeting for the first time and getting to know each other. Lunch was catered by Chick-fil-a, with covid-19 style individually boxed Chick-fil-a sandwiches, sauces, cookies, and chips for each employee to enjoy, graciously donated by Governmental Services Group along with coolers of sodas and waters.
