ITA Evening on the Terrace

While working in the stuffy office, we decided that work and air-conditioning are a little more than they're cracked up to be!

Summertime . . . and living is . . . not always easy here at ITA! Between summer camps, unit revamp and prep, Panda development, hiring new instructors, and not to mention summer school, we've been pretty swamped here through the month of June. So we decided it was high time to take a night off and go have some fun!

And the Terrace seemed like the place to do it! The warm evening air blowing in off the lake, a live bluegrass band, and shady trees overhanging the quintessentially union colored metal chairs, created a perfect atmosphere for just hangin' and having some good conversation.

One characteristic of our team definitely stands out - we're all so amazingly different! Each and all of us have stories, fascinating life experiences to share with one another. Our night on the Terrace finally gave us a time to sit down with one another and hear about those awesome experiences - where we've been, what we're doing, and where we're going. We often say that, "each person has something special to contribute" but it's important to really live that out and experience that together, discovering the unique experiences and talents of our fellow teammates.

Practice what we preach!
One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky

Summertime . . . and the livin' is eeaasssyyyyyyy . . .
