The Weekly Surge

New Year's Resolutions

It's that time of year again. People are flooding gyms and trying to stick to those pesky New Year's resolutions they made a couple of weeks ago. Did any of you make a bizarre or interesting New Year's resolution? If so, let us know.

The Austin team is focusing on a "weird holidays" calendar for 2016. For instance, this past Wednesday, January 6th was National Bean Day. Who knew? See the photos from their celebration of this weird holiday below.

The Elgin office is still working on 2016 plans for charity and team-building events. Thank you to all of you who submitted event ideas after the last two newsletters. Even though Super Bowl 50 is still a few weeks away, ideas are being thrown around about a possible pot luck and ballboard with prizes. Sounds like fun to me!
