Thoro Placed First

Congratulations to the Thoro team! The results are in, and Thoro Packaging has placed first in the Heavyweight class for the Ultimate Fitness Challenge.

The Ultimate Fitness Challenge (UFC) sponsored by Sonic Boom, was based on how much activity time participants racked up over the entire month of October.  Whether it was walking, running, dancing, or bike riding… the goal was to just keep moving!  There were over 3,000 participants and 61 teams county-wide.

The winners of the UFC will have proven themselves to be the most active, eager and dedicated Boomers of the bunch!  But if health improvement and bragging rights aren’t enough, Sonic Boom is donating $1,000 to the charity of choice for each winner! The Thoro team chose the American Cancer Society.

Sonic Boom provides a wide variety of worksite wellness challenges, wellness activities, social challenges, and epic contests. Members earn points for participating in healthy lifestyle camaraderie, losing needed weight, maintaining an ideal weight, and even for gaining needed weight.

For over 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and […]

Remembering 911

Today, we honor and remember the survivors, those who were lost on September 11, 2001, and the valiant, courageous men and women that risked their lives to save others.

 Today marks the 14th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The memories of that day still cause immeasurable heartache to those who lost loved ones on that day. Near or far, we were all impacted in some way by this tragic event. We shall never forget.

Hooray for the Red, White & Blue…

We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. In celebration, patriotic displays and family events are organized throughout the United States. As we get ready to celebrate our freedom as Americans with parades, elaborate fireworks displays, picnics, and barbeques, our friends at Printing Industries of America would like to remind you to be safe. Please make sure to take extra caution and follow some of these safety tips.

Sun Safety- Protect your skin against the sun with SPF and drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.

Water Safety- Make sure everyone near the water in pools, ponds, lakes or the ocean has the proper skills to swim; keep an eye on young children and check floatation devices for leaks.
