Colby Co. Employees Whitewater Raft on the Penobscot River

(MILLINOCKET) — Colby Co. recently spent a weekend white water rafting on the Penobscot River.

Seventeen employees joined in the fun. CCE was proud to host an event where employees could spend some time with each other after spending months working remotely, while remaining safe and following all COVID safety requirements, guidelines, and protocols.

Employees met at the New England Outdoor Center and spent the afternoon swimming, walking along the trails, and socializing – including having an outdoor dinner together by the fire.

The next morning, employees headed to the Penobscot River, and spent the entire day white water rafting.

Here’s what some of the participants had to say about the weekend:

“It was a fantastic company outing connecting with coworkers in the great outdoors. The rafting was exhilarating, the scenery was amazing, and the time spent socializing was so fun. I can’t wait to go back!”

“I had so much fun bonding with my coworkers after quite a few isolated, difficult months. It was great to be outside and get our blood pumping! The people at this company are some of the kindest, and most enjoyable people I have ever found myself surrounded by.”

Colby Co. was proud to host a COVID-friendly event as a way to thank its employees for all of their hard work during this tough year, and hopes to make white water rafting an annual event.
