Community Happenings: Week Ending 12/2

Blog Post created by hausmus Employee on Dec 5, 2016

Can you believe it's December? I can't. This year, I moved from Wisconsin to Maryland and the weather is throwing me off a little. It just doesn't seem like December without temperatures in the teens or snow (the first snowfall in Milwaukee was yesterday).


Did you know that today, December 5th, is International Ninja Day? Yes, that's right, it's a day to celebrate our skilled telecommunication experts, so... Happy International Ninja Day to all of you!! 


If you have any suggestions on things you'd like to see more (or less) of, please feel free to share to me, Heather Ausmus, or post it in About the Ciena Community
