If you’re casually perusing this week’s digital news as part of your leisurely Friday afternoon, think of us – the team at 360PR. Because as you’re glued to your chair, impatiently waiting for 5 o’ clock to roll around, we’re doing anything but sitting still. Or are we? Today marks 360PR’s annual summer outing. The day’s events have been shrouded in mystery, with only an elite few in on the knowledge of what (predictably crazy) team building activities we’re slated to participate in. We were told to wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen, should we feel inclined. But exactly where we’re going and what we’re doing? Your guess is as good as mine.

So this week, I’m dedicating our digital news stories to group-togetherness. As the old saying goes, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” Check back next week for a full recap of today’s adventure – complete with photos of the 360PR staff doing, well, I have absolutely no idea what.
