This Valentine’s Day, WRECO staff celebrated by bringing their best baked goods to WRECO’s Annual Valentine’s Day Bake-off.  We had a great turn out with 11 employees enter the competition, and everyone loved being able to take a break in the afternoon to eat and judge sweets. We had a wonderful turnout with cookies, fresh baked scones, tiered cakes, and more.

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!).
