Office politics around Vermont Woods Studios can get pretty brutal. I’m not sure what Sean did yesterday but it must have been pretty horrendous to deserve this kind of treatment– on his birthday, no less. A Pick on Sean jar? There was quite a bit of money in it too. In spite of their denials, I have to believe those innocent looking women on the right (Michelle and Loryn, believe it or not) are involved in perpetrating this offense. Liz would have nothing to do with it– I feel certain of that.
Word has it that the crew didn’t get the response they had hoped for yesterday when they tried to raise money with a Swear Jar so they took their frustrations out on poor Sean. What do you think? Any ideas to bail Sean out of this trouble? It’s his birthday… he needs some support. Send him a few words of encouragement on our Facebook!

We celebrated Loryn's birthday this week. I think if the decorations had been up to me I'd have made a more colorful choice, but for some reason, Kendall was put in charge.
So Loryn got deflated black, brown and gray balloons. And a festive sign (that Kendall obviously worked very hard at): "It is your birthday". You can't really see much of the trophy she was presented with, but it says "Fine Work Award".
If you're not a fanatical fan of "The Office" (like some in our workplace), I can tell you that the decorating ideas were borrowed from an episode where the guys in The Office were put in charge of party planning. What can I say? It wasn't pretty in Scranton and neither is it in Vernon, VT.
But Loryn did get a kick out of it and we had a productive day at Vermont Woods Studios in spite of the occasional clowning around.
Happy Birthday Loryn!

Please help me welcome Loryn, our new staff member to Vermont Woods Studios. Loryn joins us as a Marketing Assistant. Along with her talent for writing and communications, she brings a passion for nature and conservation.

She's had a long-standing committment to sustainable agriculture, having worked with the National Association of Conservation Districts NACD, the Natural Resources Conservation Service NRCS and Future Farmers of America FFA.
Loryn's already busy working with Manjula and Kendall on improving our website and putting her writing skills to work by editing and blogging. She'll be involved in many other aspects of our work down the road as we continue to discover her endless enthusiasm and creativity.
Welcome to the Woods, Loryn. We're glad you're here!
