Welcome back Fall! I have to admit, I am definitely liking the energy levels around the oil patch these days… people seem to be working & playing hard. One group that deserves a mention for going above and beyond for their community are the 437 Nexen employees that shattered a Guinness record on September 28th for the “world’s largest gathering of people dressed as Superman” to kick off their United Way campaign “Be a Superhero!”. Google Nexen and Superman if you would like to check it out for yourselves: pretty impressive… and entertaining if you can spot a friend in the muscle suits.
