Simplex-IT’s 6th Annual Community Appreciation Picnic

This past August 21, 2013 saw the successful celebration of Simplex-IT’s 6th Annual Community Appreciation Picnic. Held in lieu of our standard free monthly Lunchinar, this open event is our way of saying thanks to our clients, associates, friends and community for their part in contributing to the success we’ve enjoyed.

This year the weather cooperated with us once again as we reprised our “Throw the Hard Drive Through the Tire” game and introduced the new “Nerf Cross Bow/Hard Drive Shooting Gallery.” Several attendees won prizes from our sponsor, Microsoft.

Of course, Brandon King was present to show off his Google Glass. He’ll also be featured at September’s Lunchinar where he’ll be giving an extended presentation on this exciting new product. See the announcement elsewhere in this blog and get your reservations in early. It’s going to be another sell out!

For more pictures of our picnic fun, go to our Facebook Photo page where you can view all 73 of them! If you didn’t get to join us this year, make sure you don’t miss it next year. The Simplex-IT Picnic is THE event of the summer!

Actors Reenact 2010′s Picnic

Mark your calendars for August 15 from 4:00-8:00pm and join Simplex-IT as we welcome friends, clients, local business owners and fellow Chamber of Commerce members from Hudson, Streetsboro, Cuyahoga Falls and Akron. Once a year in August we forego our regular monthly business-oriented Lunchinar presentation in favor of an open invitation picnic celebration in the back yard of our Worldwide International Headquarters (5225 Darrow Road, Hudson). This year will be no exception.

Simplex-IT will be providing the beverages, hamburgers and hot dogs; you will be providing the essential “special ingredient” and camaraderie for which this annual event is becoming known. In addition to the abundant opportunities to network with your peers we will have assorted back yard games to test your skills. And for those who may be interested, we will also have available demonstrations of many of the information technologies Simplex-IT offers the business community throughout the year.

What should you bring? Your appetite, of course, a general sense of abandon and a lawn chair. That’s it! Plan on arriving early, staying late and having a good time!!

We do have one request. To ensure we have enough food and drink for everyone, we ask that you RSVP to John@Simplex-IT.com or phone us at 234.380.1277.

Perfect weather and a great turnout combined to make Simplex-IT’s 4th Annual Community Appreciation Picnic this past Wednesday, August 17, 2011 a resounding success. With nearly 70 attendees over the 4-hour duration there was plenty of discussion and lots of networking that took place.

There were the usual suspects: folks from the Streetsboro, Hudson and Greater Akron Chambers were in attendance as were IT professionals from the Greater Cleveland PC Users Group (GCPCUG). Several associates who are ‘in transition’ and various Simplex-IT clients rounded out the guest roster.

Chef Steve manned the grill most of the afternoon (I don’t know how Bob’s wife, Julie, talked him into it!) and he managed to keep the hot food coming to meet the demand.

Several low-key demonstrations were held on Microsoft Office 365 for those who expressed interest and island music played in the background giving an extra edge of summertime fun to the occasion. There’s nothing like a little Bob Marley to help put one in the mood!

Get a taste of what it was like by visiting our Facebook page where Cyndee Duhon, Simplex-IT marketing expert and photographer extraordinaire captured the moment in time: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.268640259816485.90697.141004949246684&type=1

If you missed it and now wished you hadn’t remember that old northeast Ohio mantra: “There’s always next year!”

Thanks to all who helped make it a great afternoon :-)

But why am I telling you this? Listen to Bob and find out what a great time we are all going to have. Just click the thumbnail below and enjoy!
