Opening of Stancell Drive Car Wash – Clean Wheels Autowash

Congrats again to the Stancell Team for getting the final certificate of occupancy on April 4th, 2018,  so the Owner wash was able to open on April 5th.  The car wash will be open from 8am to 5pm, so please try and go by there to get your car cleaned. Many thanks again to all of you that have been involved with getting this project finished.  It was truly a TEAM effort, bottom up and top down.  Operating as Clean Wheels, it is locally owned and operated, and is Chapel Hill’s first and only full service car wash.

Winter Olympics 2018 – what can we do to support?

So the question was: “What can we do to support, and get involved with the Winter Olympics this year?”

The answer: follow the sport, follow an athlete!

Each Resolute employee randomly drew a sport to support and then he/she selected an athlete to follow.  See the chart!  Folks are really engaged and some of them are corresponding via email or text with some of the Athletes!  Go USA!

Thanksgiving – Resolute Style

As everyone prepares for this special Thanksgiving season, and taking time to think about what you and we are all “thankful” for, as part of Resolute’ s continued commitment to “give back” to others and show our “thanks”; today, on behalf of our Resolute Family, we presented 12 cases of popcorn to the USO at RDU Airport for them to distribute to our soldiers and families over the holiday season. Wishing all an enjoyable and restful Thanksgiving weekend and for those of you that are traveling, please be safe and look out for each other!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
