Logistics manager’s last day at Innovative Energy

Fridays are usually the most anticipated day of the week in many offices, including ours. But that was not the case this past Friday here at Innovative Energy as we held a farewell celebration for our logistics manager, Andrea Day.

Day has been a part of the Innovative Energy team for eight years. She recently balanced work and classes as she completed her first year of graduate school in pursuit of a master’s degree in education. But in preparation for the upcoming fall semester, Day decided that it was time to focus solely on her classes.

To mark the bittersweet occasion, employees gathered in the break room to surprise Day with cake, roses and a Pandora bracelet.

“It was our pleasure to work with Andrea for the past eight years. Hard-working, dependable, trustworthy, honest and innovative are just a few words to describe her, the list is long,” said Carrie Smith, office manager.

“We will miss her here, especially her signature laugh and sense of humor, but we wish her the very best and support her decision to leave the company to further her education and make this world a better place.”

On Monday, Day reflected on her first work-free work day.

“When I passed IE, I felt an ache in my heart. I knew today was going to be hard on me,” she said. “I don’t think it’s going to get better anytime soon.”

However, we think that it might get easier for her sooner rather than later … right about the time she starts to become overwhelmed with school work.

Good luck Andrea!

Cook-off time at Innovative Energy

Winners of Innovative Energy's cook-off
Lisa Sizemore (middle) won first place in the guacamole cook-off while Tammy Snyder (left) came in second place and Wendy Brownewell (right) came in third place.

We may not be in the food industry, (although we do offer insulated packaging products for those who are) but Innovative Energy employees sure can cook. This was evident at yesterday’s company potluck where an array of dishes, including tacos, salsas, rice and bean dip – not to mention the desserts – were enjoyed.

What was the occasion? Just a good old-fashioned cook-off. The featured dish – Guacamole.

Guacamole dishes
There were five entries in the guacamole cook-off. The winning recipes can be seen in this photo as numbers 1, 5 and 4 respectively.

Five employees decided to throw their best guacamole recipe into the mix to see who would be crowned this year’s cook-off champion. With only one vote left to be tallied, Lisa Sizemore, sales assistant in the Commercial Division, and Tammy Snyder, executive director of the Packaging Division, were tied for first place.

The last vote put Sizemore ahead and she was awarded the big spoon – our cook-off trophy. Snyder walked away with second place while Wendy Brownewell, logistics manager, picked up third.
