ITD employees touch the lives of Idahoans every day in every part of the state, from maintaining and improving highways to processing driver’s licenses and vehicle records, inspecting and licensing commercial vehicles, managing and improving airports, and assisting with the development of public transportation.
Multi-modal and multi-faceted.
At the heart of all of those services are people – employees committed to making a difference.
ITD employees, and those in other state departments, will be recognized for their contributions as part of state Employee Appreciation Week that begins Monday (May 7).
Entries submitted for the inaugural photography contest will be displayed in the Headquarters lobby. Winners in each of the three categories – animals and pets, nature, and black-and-white – will receive gift cards.
Boondocks, a family entertainment center located near the I-84/Meridian exit, offers admission to ITD employees at a discounted price of $13.95 per person, from May 7 through May 13. Admission covers three-hours of activities ranging from Go-Karts and Slick Track to Rookie Go-Karts, miniature golf, bumper boats, laser tag and Kiddie Cove. The admission price includes 10 arcade tokens per guest. Employees are asked to show their badge at the admission counter to receive the discount.
Employee Appreciation Week activities at Headquarters are supported, in part, through a contribution from DOROLCO.
A small completion gift will be given to those who finish the course. Employees participating in the Centennial Trail fitness challenge can double their time spent on the walk when filling out their activity log.
Members of ITD’s executive team will reward all Headquarters employees with ice cream sandwiches in the courtyard during the two-hour period.
Irene Snijders of the Home and Garden TV network’s “Design on a Dime” will share ideas on how to transform your home from “tired to terrific.” The presentation is planned from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Headquarters auditorium. Snijders will offer practical suggestions on how to redesign/decorate any room of the house in one day. For information about the One Day Redesigns seminars, visit: www.OneDayRedesignsInc.com .
Michelle Limbomg from Lowe’s Home Improvement Center in Meridian will give a demonstration on container gardening in the courtyard Thursday afternoon. The free session will be from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
