Treating a New American Citizen To The National Pastime
Rachid Ouhadi, Tuscany at Lindbergh Apartments, Atlanta, GA Rachid has got to be one of the most humble, hardworking people around. Not only does he push himself daily to be a superstar for Venterra, but he also spends much of his down time taking English classes and studying for both the HVAC certifications and for his U.S. Citizenship test. After passing his citizenship test with flying colors recently, he is now officially a U.S. Citizen! Because Rachid’s family travels to their home country of Morocco every summer, his wife and 2 youngest kids are away until mid-August, leaving him home with his 14 year old son. We doubted that his teenager would be brainstorming for fun ways to celebrate his father’s newest milestone, so I decided we needed to do something. What better way to celebrate becoming an American than with the good old American pastime - baseball?!?! I purchased 2 tickets to see the Atlanta Braves, a parking pass, and a $25 gift card so they can buy soda and hot dogs at the game! Better yet, the Friday night game will wrap up with a fireworks display! He told us that they have never been to a game, so he was beyond ecstatic! The next morning he reported that his son was just as thrilled as he was, and was already counting the days until the game! Rachid doesn’t know it just yet, but we’ll also be surprising him with a little extra time off on the day of the game, so that he can have plenty of time to get ready and beat rush hour traffic on his way to the 7:30 game! 115
