Community Life Pancake Breakfast
The snow is falling and finals are fast approaching. So nothing sounds better than some comfort breakfast food to help us get through it all. In celebration of the end of the year, Community Life is hosting a pancake breakfast December 8 from 8:00–9:30 in the OCC Coffee Shop. Come on by before class (or after for our Greek class.) All are welcomed. We will have yogurt, juice, fruit, and coffee available along with fun pancake toppings.
Staff and faculty, check your inbox to signup for a 30 minute shift to help make and serve the pancakes.
Christmas Treats, Coffee, Tea, and Cocoa
The Employee Engagement Team invites students, faculty and staff to gather over coffee, tea, or hot cocoa with a side of your favorite Christmas treat. Please bring along one or two dozen of your favorite treats to make this time of year and drop them in BH 116 between 10–noon on Wednesday, December 14.
Then, please join us between 1:30–3:00 p.m. as we gather before our Christmas/New Year Break. Please feel free to come and go as you are able. If you have questions feel free to contact an EET member: Jon Anderson, Carrie Johnson, Sianeh Miller-Crusoe, Grace Pomroy, or Alison Roberts.
