Trip of a Lifetime: Wes Bloemker’s Return to the Hawaiian Islands
Our company-paid Trip of a Lifetime benefit is one of our favorites to highlight. Employees are eligible for a “Trip of a Lifetime” for every five years of service to recognize their dedication. This time, GIS Compliance and Validation Manager Wes Bloemker shares highlights from his second adventure to the Hawaiian Islands:
“For my five-year Trip of a Lifetime, my wife and I decided to return to a place that we love – the Hawaiian Islands. We traveled to the islands several years ago, but this time we wanted to visit the island of Kauai too. Hawaii was so much fun and we went snorkeling with sea turtles and took a helicopter ride over the active volcano, “Kilauea,” where we were able to watch the lava’s path as it filled up Kapoho Bay. After the gorgeous helicopter tour, we stopped at the local Salvation Army and provided a donation to help those who lost their homes from this eruption. While in Kauai, we attended a traditional luau and ventured through the lush rainforests and waterfalls of the beautiful Waimea Canyon.
We give our sincerest thanks to Arthrex for this unforgettable trip and this remarkable benefit that we receive by working here."
