HR will deliver the Appreciation-Gram(s) on your behalf on Friday, May 26, 2017. Supplies will be provided, just bring your creativity!

Books, Movies, and Music Swap

Stop by the table outside The Kitchens in the morning to drop off your books, CD’s, and DVD’s and swap them for something that interests you. All items remaining at the end of the day will be donated to a local community organization!
