Soaking up the Sun with the RGA Team! We traded our desks for the great outdoors and came together for a summer team outing in beautiful Alexandria Bay! From boats to delicious (color coordinated) bites to eat, we took a break to build stronger connections, recharge, and have some well-deserved fun under the sun. August 2023
