A Corporate Gift

"Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun". Noel Coward could have added PerkinElmer employees to that group! This Tuesday, as hot and muggy as it was, these folks lived up to their commitment to display corporate citizenship by spending the better part of the day making improvements to one of the newer sections of the Shelton Rec Path.

The first team hit the ground running, rakes, shovels and hay forks blurred as they spread wood chips pre-placed by the Parks and Recreation Department.

The wood chips were used to help stabilize the edges of the rec path and impede erosion

Fortunately, most of the day's work was done in the shadier section, making the task at hand a bit more bearable

"Let's go home!" The PerkinElmer gang gathers their tools heads back to civilization, having put in a good day's work and personalizing their company's slogan, "for the better". The corporation will be providing more work parties in the weeks ahead. Thank you, PerkinElmer and your community-minded employees!
