A bonus day requires special attention.

ADEC gave Feb. 29, 2016 its due by creating a Leap Day Challenge in four easy steps. We invited staff to write down four things each hoped to accomplish in the next four years. We asked them to put on a silly hat, hold up the list and be photographed. Next, they needed to submit the photo electronically by 4 p.m. Feb. 28 to qualify for a gift card. The final step was to enter their list of four things in a time capsule bottle for a special drawing on Feb. 29, 2020. On that date, someone will win $400.

More than 80 staff participated, up from about 60 for the Ugly Christmas Sweater challenge. Take a look at the video montage of photos compiled by Rod Tackett, ADEC Communications Specialist.


Did you spot the horse head and bowl(er) hats? All part of the fun.

And here’s a Leap Day thought for the day: A horse is a horse, of course, of course, And no one can talk to a horse of course. That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Schrock.
