I kid you not.
This award exists.
And in a few weeks, that award will be proudly displayed here at Holiday World.
I'm afraid I may have offended Steve a bit; I grinned and started laughing when he told me about the Outstanding Concrete Achievement Award.
"You're joking, right?" I chuckled. My chortle quickly choked into a cough when I saw that … he wasn't.
Yes … here it comes … brace yourself … suddenly, I found myself between a rock and a hard place.
How narrow minded I've been.
Sure, I know all about the organizations that I'm associated with here at the park, but I all but scoffed at the thought that the Indiana Ready Mixed Concrete Association might want to get together once in a while and pat each other on the back.
What more concrete evidence could you ask for but the Tiki fountains at Bahari?
So congratulations to Steve and his crew for the award. (Do they call each other "cement heads" in private?) You've all worked hard to earn this distinction.
Okay, one more and then I'll stop.
The awards luncheon next month, will the social time before the meal be called … a Cement Mixer?
