There’s no doubt that the Sault Ste. Marie region received unusually high volumes of snow this winter as a result of the Great Lakes effect. After many months of snowblowing their driveways and warming up their engines before travelling in their vehicles, STEM employees were eager to pull the barbeque out of storage and get grillin’! On Friday, May 26, 2017, STEM gathered together outside at lunchtime on the lawn to delight in the revival of summer. The start of this season is an exciting time for the STEM team, as many look forward to spending quality time with their friends and family outdoors while going camping, riding their bikes, playing baseball, etc. At the barbeque, co-workers enjoyed good food, music and company. Burgers were flipped, laughs were had and the warm weather was appreciated!
Juicy burgers, hot-off-the-grill!

A STEM tradition is to bring donuts to the office on your birthday. STEM summer student, Brendan, took this obligation seriously and brought enormous donuts to the barbeque. Happy birthday, Brendan!

Due to Nathan’s promising history of delivering fantastically cooked meals, he was appointed the honourary position of main chef on this Friday afternoon. Great job, Nathan!
