Celebrate Coast Guard Day!

In Michigan, we are blessed with super-great summers (usually), where you can find families soaking up the sun on the beaches all over the state. I love spending my summer weekends on the lake! If you ever get a chance to visit Michigan, I recommend doing so in the summer time—it's gorgeous!

About 50 miles west of Baudville is a town called Grand Haven or, during the summer months, "Coast Guard City, USA." Every year, Grand Haven hosts the Coast Guard Festival , which is a ten-day event to honor members of the US Coast Guard. Over 340,000 attend the festivities that include parades, a carnival, ship tours, fireworks, and more!

Kimberly's Kitchen: Healthy Summer Celebrations

Hello, my name is Kimberly and I am a Pinterest foodie. I am thoroughly addicted to food and pinning food on Pinterest. I have tried a handful of recipes that I've pinned, some have turned out and of course some have not. Always worth a try to spice up meals, right?

SHRM Booth 1379 is the Place to Be if You Want to Talk Big Moments!

What's a big moment at Baudville? Well, it can be a lot of things, but the biggest of big is winning either the management-nominated Inspire Award or the peer-nominated Luminary Award. They winners are always kept a surprise up until the time they're announced at our Year-End Party, which means this first one was quite the feat to pull off!


Thank Your School PrinciPAL on School Principal’s Day!

I'll never forget how to spell principal thanks to the little "my principal is my PAL" trick I learned in grade school. As I've gotten older I've learned a little bit more about what principals actually do (they do not, in fact, live at school and sleep in the school closet). Principals are truly responsible for being a PAL to everyone – teachers, staff, parents, students, board members, and community members!

School Principal's Day is celebrated on May 1 this year. So take a moment to tell your principal how much you appreciate all that he or she does on a daily basis. Send a free ePraise card or hand-write a note of thanks; include a gift card to the local bookstore or coffee shop, or decorate their office while they're out to lunch.
