Community Happenings: Week Ending 8/12

Blog Post created by margarita.giraldo Employee on Aug 15, 2016

Happy Monday! We're midway through August today, and if you're in the American South like I am, it truly feels like the dog days of summer. Phew-I'm ready for fall! For this week's fun fact, I'm happy to share that on this day in 1914, the Panama Canal opened, creating a gateway from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. Ingenuity at its finest!


Anyway, if you have any suggestions on things you'd like to see more (or less) of, please feel free to share with Margarita Giraldo or post in About the Ciena Community
