Helen Li's Retirement Party
In July of this year (2014) Paul Kramer and Bonnie Ng hosted a retirement party for Helen Li. It was a wonderful event with folks from throughout her career showing up to express appreciation for Helen's intelligence, skills, deep knowledge, and her major contributions to the great gear that defines our corner of the industry.
Here's follows the few photos and a few small bits of video that I took during the event.
So then, Help me out now folks! If you were there and have more, please send it on. This is merely the starter form of this story. I would particularly like any video of Jack and Paul's introductions of Helen!
[Helen's speech; she was gracious as always. Does anyone have Paul and Jacks introductions? Transcript below.]
[Helen with The North Face coworkers (from pre-1993): Cammy Harris, Susan Castner, Nancy Eisen, Kin Chan, Kevin Smith, Lydia Lam, Dan Castner, Helen Li, Susan Smith]
[A pan of the outside crowd. There were more folks in the kitchen and in Paul and Bonnie's living room.]
