Upcoming Holidays, & Events

2/13 Fat Tuesday – Mardi Gras Day or Fat Tuesday is the last day of the Carnival season as it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Join us for some King Cake and New Orleans style food to celebrate. Tradition dictates that finding the baby in your cake symbolizes luck and prosperity, and the finder becomes the “king” or “queen” of the evening.

2/14 Valentine’s Day & Ash Wednesday – Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14, and we are ready to shower our significant, family & friends others with love and tokens of our affection. Ash Wednesday is 6-weeks before Easter Sunday. Observed by Christians as a holy day of fasting and praying, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent.

2/17 Random Acts of Kindness Day – For those of you that wish you could change the world, Random Act of Kindness Day, on February 17, is just for you. One can never go wrong with kindness, and there can never be too much of it. Every small act of kindness is significant. It may seem like it doesn’t accomplish much but, just like the domino effect, one act of kindness can lead to more positive outcomes. Don’t hold back from uplifting others with compliments and compassion on this day.

2/19 President’s Day – Every third Monday of February (February 19) we celebrate Presidents’ Day in all its patriotic glory. There are fantastic deals on home furniture and appliances on Presidents’ Day, so keep a lookout for that throughout the week. Fun Fact – President Lincoln’s height was 6’4″, making him the tallest president ever. Note, our offices will be open, but this is a federal government holiday.

2/20 National Love Your Pet Day – On February 20, we celebrate National Love Your Pet Day, a day to embrace one special trait that makes us human: our love of our pets! Use the #YourStrategicPets and post those photos!

2/29 Leap Day – February is the shortest month in the calendar year, glad we get an extra day! Leap days are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s rotation around the Sun. Fun fact – Women in Illinois arrested men for being single on leap day in the 1940s.

Inspirational Quote of The Month

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.”

Michael Jordan

Employees of the Month

Neal Heumann – “Neal has a difficult task of picking up the pieces on projects left by his predecessor and putting them in order to execute. He has turned around many installs, found solutions to meet customer expectations, and organized a progressive path forward with very little time left on the clock.” – Chris Payne

Jeffrey Warren – “Jeff has played a huge role in lightening the IT workload for other employees. Specifically, Jeff has shown initiative and results for our latest Call Manager server outage. He helped identify a potential root cause, elevated the issue to Cisco TAC, restored the web service, and will be working to fulfill the complete restoration of the server.” – Spencer Coleman

Len Deffinbaugh – “Shoutout to Len for recently completing multiple Sales and Solution Engineering credentials for Oracle in support of our Cloud Reseller partnership. We appreciate your dedication.” – Paige Reh
