Hey zWORKers,

We're getting close! 8 more days. Calling all volunteers willing to help out next Friday for Polo in Zionsville. Click here to register for a certain time slot. We need help with everything from set up to raffle tickets to tear down. Another way you can help is to bring wine or beer donations to zWORKS by July 24!

A little different from our bi-weekly feature, we've prepared a special section called zWORKS #Quirks in this week's edition. Scroll down if you're at all curious.

Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or if we can be helpful in any way.

zWORKS #Quirks

Stuck in an elevator... err... phone booth
All was quiet on the zWORKS front. Another Monday, another week. A few people milled about, diving into the work week with relentless zeal. One such zWORKer was Tom. Little did Tom know what this Monday had in store.

He innocently decided to take a call into a phone booth in the middle work area. He noticed a little something off when he opened the door, but took his phone call and thought nothing of it. Cut to 15 minutes later and he went to open the door to return to the world of light. 

But the world had different plans. The door had unhinged, in turn unhinging any of Tom's hopes to return to the outside world. Thus followed a few hesitant knocks and "help me" calls. Tom's efforts were futile as any chance of escape were submerged in their headphones. A few increasingly anxious cries for help and a last-ditch effort to call Kate.

Kate looked at her phone somewhat perplexed but unfazed when she heard the request at the other end of the line. She rushed back to save Tom from the phone booth prison it had become. He stumbled into the world of light, undeniably relieved to have avoided certain dark despair. And so life went on at zWORKS.
Rolls on rolls on rolls
Some think of the beach. Some think of no school. Some think of family vacations. What does the zWORKS team think about during the summer?

Toilet paper. An endless pit of despair. Summertime is no joke when it comes to Charmin at zWORKS. We're not quite sure what it is. Yes, attendance fluctuates throughout the year. Yes, the summer has certain weeks that are busier than most. Yes, there are certain times when the toilet paper runs dangerously low. Those darn rolls just keep disappearing as quickly as Kate's glasses or phone charger on any given day. 

During one of those weeks, Vickie came to the rescue. Speeding through Zionsville back to her house to retrieve those Charmin rolls of goodness. This was one thing she didn't think would be part of her job description. During another of those weeks, Kate retrieved the goods from her house and emerged a hero, yet again. And so life went on at zWORKS.
zWORKS to the rescue
Not many of us think of jumping on the trampoline. Period. Let alone jumping on a trampoline at 7 in the morning. Four kids on the other hand have a very different outlook on life. One zWORKS member's four kids thought a trampoline at 7 in the morning sounded like the best thing in the world.

Amanda had found a way to distract her kids for the time being. But she could no longer do this. She needed a respite. And she needed it now.

Enter zWORKS. Kate was, yet again, unfazed by the call she received that morning. She could hear the sound of 4 kids screaming with childish delight in the background as Amanda explained her situation. Two hours later and Amanda was all set up to go at zWORKS. She walked through the zWORKS door at 9 a.m. and didn't look back. And so life went on at zWORKS.
