Last night, Leanne and I had the privilege of attending the annual “Winter Celebration” for my company. The event was held at the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. Honestly, when I heard where it was this year, I was somewhat apprehensive. It was in NJ which is farther from our home than the locations in years past. Also, Camden doesn’t have the best reputation for being the safest place in the country. In fact, I believe Camden had one of the highest murder rates per population in 2007. Honestly, I was wrong.
The location of the event was incredible. It only took us 45 minutes to get to the aquarium from our house. Parking was great and the facility certainly seemed safe to me upon arrival. The banquet room provided spectacular views of the aquarium’s shark tank and of the Philadelphia sky line. (If you’re looking for a place to host your next big gathering, check the aquarium out.)
Besides these details, this annual event also gives us a chance to let our hair down so to speak and to celebrate the year past. It’s also a chance to say thank you to our spouses for putting up with all the stresses that go along with our jobs. Coincidentally, this event fell on my 12th anniversary of being with the company. In a way, this fact seems quite amazing. I am truly thankful for my job, for the opportunities and projects that I’ve achieved, and for the people who I get to work with every day.
Until the next post, watch out for the sharks…
