Downtown Walnut Creek is the place to be for St. Patrick’s Day!

WRECO staff tried out a new spot for our St. Patrick’s Day company happy hour this year. Though we missed having cheap green beer, we enjoyed the beautiful weather, craft beers, whiskey, and tasty appetizers at Sauced, a local barbecue joint in Walnut Creek.  It was a great way to relax and unwind after a hard day at work!

Walnut Creek Community Service Day

WRECO encourages its employees and their families to volunteer in the community and give back locally. This year’s Walnut Creek Community Service Day features more than 50 projects and offers something for all ages, all interests, and all skills levels. WRECO staff volunteered at the “Make Walnut Creek’s Downtown History Shine Event” and the “Pine Creek Cleanup – Oak Grove Area Event.

WRECO staff put their bowling skills to the test and cheered each other on at our staff’s bowling night on June 30 at Danville Bowl. While our lanes had some technical difficulties, like the conveyor belt not bringing the bowling balls back, everyone enjoyed having a chance to unwind, chat, give bowling pointers, and get competitive. The winning team actually had the most evenly matched scores in each game, with each member scoring around 80 in the first game and around 120 in the second game. Our president, Han-Bin Liang, also gave out prizes for the second worst male and female bowlers (so that no one would strive to do the worst!).

Mt. Diablo 5K Trail Challenge

Last Sunday, April 19th, WRECO participated in the Mt. Diablo 5K trail run hosted by Save Mount Diablo.  The run was located in Mt. Diablo Regional Park in the Castle Rock area and it was a hit!  WRECO wanted the opportunity to get out of the office and enhance our fitness while simultaneously helping the non-profit Save Mount Diablo preserve the open space and trails around Walnut Creek.  The trail consisted of climbing up moderately rough terrain and running through 4 different creeks before turning around and doing it all over again.  We found out that part of the Castle Rock area is temporarily closed right now to help facilitate the nesting of a listed species, the peregrine falcon.  Mt. Diablo is home to many indigenous creatures that only live in this area (14 in fact!), and we were proud to help support the preservation of their habitats.

We had a great time and some of our employees turned out to be quite athletic.  Cuyler Stapelmann finished 16th overall, and 2nd in his age group, at a great time of 26 minutes and 13 seconds.  That’s fast!
