Happy Retirement

Happy Retirement

RTR recently celebrated the retirement of our own Mike Nowakowski in a manner befitting one of the greats: by retiring his number. The #37 represents Mike’s years of dedicated service to the electric utility industry. Mike served as an outage engineer for RTR with style, class, dedication and uncommon humility.

Mike is well loved, universally respected and will be sorely missed as a co-worker, mentor and friend. We wish Mike and his lovely wife Cathy (who just recently became grandparents) and their family every happiness.

Mike’s jersey will hang in our Hellertown office.

RTR Conquers Warrior Dash

RTR Conquers Warrior Dash

2017 Warrior Dash – Pennsylvania is in the Books

7 RTR employees and 2 family members raced to the finish line of the 5K Warrior Dash on Saturday, August 26th at 9am on a chilly morning in Long Pond, Pa. at the Pocono Raceway. Our team ran along an obstacle course into muddy water, climbed a roped cliffhanger, jumped through fire and over and under many other obstacles along the 3.1 mile course. Although, our warriors didn’t require any trips to the emergency room, they crossed the finish line a little battered and bruised, much less pristine than when they started; but still smiling as is common in any gathering of RTR staff. Proceeds from Warrior Dash benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Please click here to make a donation.
