Nexton community encouraging businesses, residents to work outside Thursday


Anyone who works inside knows it can be hard to look at the same four walls all day. The Nexton Community is trying to change that on Thursday by encouraging businesses in the Summerville area to work outside.

Summerville Mayor Whiley Johnson is behind the initiative and will make a proclamation declaring April 19 as official Work Outside Day.

Live music and food trucks will be available in the Brown Family Park where Home Telecom will provide faster internet speeds for workers.The Bottle Neck Coffee Truck will be outside the SCRA building from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. before music and food are available at the park from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Nexton even offered some tips on how to work outside:

  • Walking Meetings: Take your conference calls on your cell phone and check your email while walking through the trails at Brown Family Park.
  • Creative Brainstorm: Let the fresh air fuel your strategic thinking caps. Connect with coworkers and clients to review status updates and brainstorm new initiatives.
  • Computer Spring Cleaning: Bring your laptop and post up at farms tables in Brown Family Park and do that much needed inbox and desktop organization.
  • R&R: It’s important to take a break to refresh and recharge. Enjoy live local music and lunch from local food trucks to power through your workday.
