Employee Appreciation Day Celebration on Thursday to include free lunch

Western Carolina University’s annual Employee Appreciation Day Celebration will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday (Sept. 3) at Ramsey Regional Activity Center, offering a free lunch with barbecue pork and country fried chicken, a gift for the first 1,100 attendees, musical entertainment, prize drawings and a benefits/vendor fair on the concourse.

WCU’s Staff Senate will be accepting food and monetary donations for the Community Table of Sylva at the truck tunnel entrance of the Ramsey Center and at the Staff Senate table on the concourse. The Community Table is a nonprofit organization that serves meals to neighbors in need. Items requested include pasta noodles, canned meats, nonperishable goods, olive and vegetable oils, soups, peanut butter, cereal, baby food, dish and hand soap, plastic bags, oatmeal, aluminum foil and large trash bags.

Staff Senate also will host a drawing and collect donations for the Staff Senate Scholarship.

WCU employees who are celebrating years of service in increments of five can pick up their certificates on the main arena floor.

Members of the WCU Board of Trustees have meetings scheduled on campus late-week, and several are planning on attending the event at the Ramsey Center.
