Fun Events & Employee Clubs
Janicki hosts many fun events for employees and encourages community involvement. There are also several clubs that Janicki supports. Here are a few of our recent activities:
Janicki employees team up to compete in the annual Ski-to-Sea competition, a multisport relay race that runs from Mt. Baker to Bellingham Bay. Janicki sponsored four corporate teams this year, with one of them coming in 4th place!
Employees can participate in our annual Plant-to-Plant event. Participants have the choice to walk, run or ride a bike the 10-mile trek of the Cascade Trail between our Highway 20 and Hamilton facilities. There are expansive fields, mountain views, quiet streams, and opportunities for wildlife views throughout. There are refreshments and prizes at the end.
Each year, Janicki Utah employees participate in the Ogden Marathon. Employees run in the full marathon, half marathon, relay team, and 5K. Janicki has a themed “hoopla station” where we cheer on our employees, and all the runners, as they go by. It is a fun event for everyone!
4th of July Parade
Janicki participates in the annual Sedro-Woolley 4th of July Loggerodeo Grand Parade. Our floats are designed, built and operated by Janicki employees, and vary in design year-to-year. The float is pulled by four 2,000 pound Belgian draft horses owned by the Janicki family.
JIBS is a bicycle and ski sports maintenance shop in our Bellingham facility. The shop is open 24/7 to all employees who join the JIBS club and is stocked with all the tools and supplies needed to fix equipment. Employees can also schedule free rentals of mountain bikes. A group ride at Galbraith mountain was held to kick off the grand opening, and over 100 employees have joined the club so far!
Janicki Utah employees and family members participate in spring and fall softball leagues.
Janicki sponsors a coed employee soccer team in Bellingham, WA. Employees can join 8-week leagues which run year-round.
