The Health Factory will introduce a new line of vitamins, a company spokesman said yesterday. The vitamins are intended for athletic men and women, who are looking for a vitamin that will replace vital nutrients lost during strenuous exercise. Unlike regular vitamins, the Health Factory Active Essentials 2020 have more iron, calcium, and potassium. The new vitamins have been tested on performance by up to 20 percent. Of course, health products like the Active Essentials vitamins are not cheap. One month’s supply of the new vitamins costs about $200. To promote the new product, however, the Health Factory is offering a special 30 percent discount to anyone who purchase the new vitamins with their Health Factory card. For more information on the new product or to apply for a Health Factory card, call the company’s customer service hotline at 1-800-326-HEALTH.

Subject: Company Picnic

Hello, I just wanted to let everyone know that the Tollins company picnic has been cancelled because there is a chance of rain on the day we originally chose. As you know, we wanted to have the picnic outdoors so that employees could participate in a variety of team-building exercises.

We asked the Humble Country Club if we could hold the lunch in their Club House instead, but unfortunately they told us that Plymouth will be holding a special banquet to celebrate their 25th anniversary there.

Attached to this mail is an Employee Preference Form. I am asking all employees to list their preferred date for the rescheduled company picnic. I sincerely hope that we can accommodate everyone’s schedule. Please fill out the form and email it to me by Thursday, March 21st, at 3 p.m.
