Today’s Quaran-tip is from Emily Moline Meyer: “On my work from home days, I make a point to get out and walk in my neighborhood part-way through the day. If I have a lunch meeting, I take a late break and walk to nearby Corbin Park and back. Having time away from my screen actually boosts my productivity for the afternoon, and gives me an opportunity to work problems out in my head. Without the commute and reasons to get up and chat with a coworker, it is easy to stay put for hours at a time in my home office. Gotta enjoy the great weather while we have it!”
#ThrowbackThursday to our first company rafting trip in 2015. Since then, our trip has grown to include every family in the office, with 2019’s trip growing to 80 people camping together for two nights. We have greatly missed our big team-building event this year, but know there will be much to celebrate when we emerge from the challenges brought by COVID-19. Go, Team!
#ThrowbackThursday to the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Vancouver, Washington, designed for joint use by the U.S. Army Reserve and Washington Army National Guard. The 115,000 s.f. complex includes a 78,000 s.f. Headquarters Building, a 14,000 s.f. Organizational Maintenance Shop, a 23,000 s.f. Heated/Unheated Storage Building, and 40,000 s.f. surface for Deployable Medical Sets.

In the Spring of 1994, Mr. Bob Wills taught “An Introduction to Architecture” to a very lucky class at Hutton Elementary School. In this lesson, he’s sharing all about the Child Development Center at Fairchild Air Force Base. We have no proof but like to think one of those 3rd graders is now an up-and-coming architect.
