Ready or Not, Here Comes Summer!

  All of the staff River Riders have been working extra hard these past few months on summer preparations. The boys in the shop, as you can see, have been working on finishing the upstairs area which we are planning on utilizing as an extra check in area for the summer. Ben, Ed, Bill, and Adam are under the pressure of deadlines. They did finish the upstairs area in time for inspection, which went very well. Ed has been working double-time on finishing the counter (which looks amazing thus far) while Ben, Bill, and Adam moved on to repairing rafts and duckies for next summer.
  The girls in the office have been working hard as well. Angie, our administrative assistant, has been doing a great job working with vendors, paying bills, sending out tax information, setting up employee incentives, and working as Matt's right hand woman!
  The office girls Meredith and Rebecca, have been pounding away at their keyboards entering in important information to our database. When they aren't in front of their computers they are doing a wonderful job cleaning the retail area and getting it ready to display our new merchandise.
  Lauren and Amanda are working on setting up summer programs and booking reservations for larger groups with special requests. Lauren has been doing a great job updating our website and processing summer camp applications. Amanda is working with applications for employment, promoting the company at trade shows, ordering merchandise, and developing relationships with different parks and recs in the area. 
  Amanda is also working on getting musicians to play for us on Saturdays during the summer time.
  We are all working very hard on getting everything just right for you, our guests and employees! Here is to thoughts of warmth and the longer lasting sunshine of summer!
