Independent Electrical Contractors Rocky Mountain (IECRM) held its annual Back to School “ IECReaM” Social and Open House the afternoon of Friday, August 17. This event was a lot of fun for all ages. More than 130 attendees –– nearly double the attendance over last year –– enjoyed hot dogs, popcorn, and ice cream sundaes with all the toppings, all while testing their skills at games. In addition to football-throwing, putting golf balls into “GolfZilla”, cornhole, and yard pong, adults enjoyed cold beers! We were delighted that apprentices and members brought their families. Activities for little ones included a bounce house, craft activities, chalk art, ring toss, bean bag toss into “GolfZilla”, and more.
Special guest, Northglenn’s Mayor, the Honorable Carol Dodge, stopped by the event and toured the IECRM Northglenn electrical training facility and labs with CEO Marilyn Stansbury.
A big thank you goes to Krista Miller and Rexel USA for sponsoring the ice cream sundae station. Rexel supplied the delicious ice cream, fun toppings, and a big crew to help out. What a great treat on a hot summer day!
Office Sensei sponsored a t-shirt making station that proved to be a Sensei-sensation craft activity for both the kids and adults. Adults and kids alike were able to create their very own designs and then have them transferred to a t-shirt that were ready-to-wear in an instant!
We are grateful to our Event Task Force members Jeff Magee of Magee Electric, Russell Tafoya of Weifield Group, and Bryan Beckett of Office Sensei for the creative ideas that made this event a success. In all, it was a fun day with something for everyone. We look forward to see what great ideas our task force members will come up with for next year’s Open House event.
