Q: What is your favorite Maxons story?
A: One of my favorites was from a summer outing a few years ago. We put together a scavenger hunt in Central Park and I got to run around with my team and see things I haven’t seen before in Central Park. We were having a fun adventure while working on a project. It was a fun day! And it was an unexpected fun day!
