STRATA Dedicates Day to Service

On Saturday, June 29th, STRATA celebrated their first service day where nearly 100 STRATA employees and family members, gathered to volunteer in different areas of the Uintah Basin. 

In Vernal, one group of volunteers helped to clean up the landscaping at Freestone Legacy Walking Park while another cleaned windows at The Turning Point Homeless Shelter. At the park, four hours were spent clearing out the areas around the walking trail, removing a fence, and leveling the dirt along the sidewalks to make it safer for walking.

Others donated their Saturday to plant trees and place drip systems along the walking trail at Constitution Park in Roosevelt. STRATA’s construction crew spent Friday digging the holes and trenches for the water system and other employees met at the park the following morning to start planting the trees. In total, 48 trees were planted along the south and west sides of the route. These trees, combined with those that were planted by the Rotary and Interact Clubs earlier this spring, make it so that the entire walking path now has trees alongside it. 

Dustin Glines, Parks Supervisor for Roosevelt City, was there to assist with and oversee the project at Constitution Park.

“This was not an easy project but the employees at STRATA made it happen, along with the employees’ families,” said Glines. “It is awesome to have a great company like STRATA to do this project. It says a lot about the company and even more about the employees. It will add so much good to the walking path - both shade and beautification.” 

The final group of volunteers gathered at Altamont City Park to apply a fresh coat of paint to the bleachers and hang up non-smoking signs. They also repainted the curbs along main street and the office building for the town of Altamont.   

“Being a local cooperative, STRATA has always been a big supporter of the community and we try do as much as we can to give back,” Tyler Rasmussen, STRATA’s Marketing & Public Relations Manager, said. “This year, we wanted to celebrate our commitment even further and felt like we were in a position to do more with the help from our employees. We’re very grateful to all of the employees and family members who volunteered their time to help make our community a better place.” 

Rasmussen said that they hope to do more employee service projects in the future and are looking forward to creating a tradition of community service and giving back in new ways.
