Spooktacular Results and Halloween Dismissal

We hope everyone enjoyed this year’s Development Halloween Spooktacular! A big thank you to all the teams who decorated spaces and to all those who volunteered to help. We had a tie for second place between the Development Coordinators’ “Under the Sea” and Annual Giving’s “Area 51.”

First place, and with bragging rights for the whole year, goes to Information Technology and Services’ “M&Ms.” Congratulations!

Because everyone did such a fantastic job this year, the Halloween Committee will be providing lunch for all the teams that participated. Look out for details in the coming weeks.

You can view photos from the Spooktacular here.

In appreciation of everyone’s hard work, please feel free to leave at 4pm on Halloween (this Thursday) if your workload permits.
