Fun in the Sun at the Library Faculty & Staff Appreciation Picnic
By Julie Thomas, Chair, Library Employee Committee

Mother Nature served up the perfect spring day while Jim Hayes and Ed Alston grilled up some tasty barbeque for everyone at the Library Faculty & Staff Appreciation picnic on Tuesday, June 7 th. A good time was had by all, especially the lucky winners of the cake walk and the bingo games - which were emceed magnificently by Reza Peigahi. Kerry Ryan was the jovial clown underneath the makeup and wig, making one and all smile with her beautiful balloon chapeaux and animals. We also want to thank Hong Wang for popping the delicious popcorn and Lillie Jones for creating the sno-cone masterpieces, welcome treats in the afternoon!

We also extend a hearty congratulation to the winners of the first annual Employee Awards. From the list of worthy nominees, the following people were voted tops this year:

Finally, the members of the LEC would like to thank all employees for their support over the past two years. Anne Bradley is next year’s chair of the Library Employee Committee and we hope that everyone will continue to attend the events and fundraisers that Anne and the other committee members host.
