TFS Connection volume VI

Meet your TFS Staff: We would like to take this opportunity to highlight and thank our entire TFS team. We have approximately 225 team members. During this unique time of dealing with COVID-19, our team has shown unwavering commitment to the people supported at TFS. For that, we would like to say thank you!

In an effort to make the most of the extra time at home while encouraging creativity, we kicked off the TFS Corona Quarantine Creativity Campaign. There were great ideas submitted: painted doors as mosaics, tye-died t-shirts, handmade masks, etc. Congrats to the guys at 7H for pulling off the win!

The weather was not good, but according to the forecast it would be better for the sunset. It was worth it. Legend has it that a magician smashed the rainbow he had created to seduce a mermaid into the lake, sending beautiful colors tumbling into the water. In truth, many of the beautiful colors are reflected from the surrounding evergreen forests, colors of the mountain rock faces, and the sky above." • Jon Tyson - "untitled image" • Tim Swaan - "Whangarei Falls footbridge"
