Big Wahoo Thank You
To all IM-REC staff who worked during the recent inclement weather response.
On behalf of the IM-Recreational Sports Leadership Team, we want to extend a sincere thank-you for the many dedicated efforts to support our facilities and programs during recent storm. Through one of the biggest and most impactful storms we have seen in the area of late, your part in the response and recovery effort was also among the best overall responses we have seen.
We know that many of you braved the weather to staff facilities, lead programs, and shovel snow. These efforts to keep the buildings open, reached further than you may have realized. We have heard numerous accounts from the university officials and our peer departments about how much they appreciated us remaining open as reasonably as possible to offer students, faculty, and staff an option to maintain some normalcy through an outlet for physical activity and social interaction.
During the snow storm, 3,711 people used the gyms 5,412 times.
Again, thanks for your dedicated efforts in planning and responding in such a strong way. You have proven again how you are such a critical asset to our unit’s success. The entire department truly appreciates your efforts!
