Primm News and Announcements: Team Members Get Active In June

The Primm team sure is jumping into summer 2013! With Harbor Fest coming up this weekend, we are growing more and more excited for summer festivities in Hampton Roads and beyond. And since June is National Employee Wellness month, we thought this would be a great opportunity to update you on how a few members of our crew are using their spare time to get active, get outdoors and serve the community.

Last weekend, programmer Lucy Conn completed a 150 mile roundtrip bike ride up and down the Eastern Shore. We highlighted Lucy on the blog a few weeks ago and are happy to report that she had a blast while cycling to benefit Multiple Sclerosis research! And we have some awesome photos from the weekend to share:

Great work, Lucy!


Primm CEO Tom Noffsinger also participated in the event, “Bike MS,” by riding his motorcycle alongside the cyclists and offering assistance (food, bike repair, moral support) as needed.

Speaking of Tom,  he heads out to New Jersey this weekend to teach signature sea kayaking skills at the first annual Garden State Sea Kayak Symposium. Tom has taught at similar events in the past as a seasoned kayaker and instructor but he looks forward to participating in this the inaugural year of the Garden State Sea Kayak Symposium.

Here are some photos of Tom in action last winter. That water sure does look cold!

The Symposium will have its base camp at Lake Lenape Park in Mays Landing, NJ and will last from Friday to Sunday. Good luck, Tom!
