Launch of SyngentaProud Community Service Day
We were pleased to have been chosen for the kick off of a new corporate community service program called SyngentaProud. Beth Mathews of Syngenta's Protein Expression Product Safety Group in the region pulled together 24 employees to come to the lake on August 27. They hopped aboard with Captain Don's Triangle Boat Tours in the morning to see the beauty of the lake and its soaring birds. Lunch was at the Visitor Assistance Center of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers perched above the lake with a great view to the B. Everett Jordan dam. Captain Don then ferried them a short distance across the Haw River Arm for an afternoon of service with us. These hard working volunteers picked up trash all along the tip of the peninsula known as Wilderness Island.
They carried 32 bags and rolled 3 tires back to the waiting pontoon boat for the return trip to the Corps' dock and unloading .
Beth said "we really enjoyed our day at the lake and were so glad we could help out in the community. I received a lot of feedback that the event (both boating and the cleanup) were a success."
