2010 Holiday Luncheon

Thank you to all who attended the 2010 Holiday Luncheon, and congratulations to all of the prize winners this year!  Please visit the Plant Operations' Facebook Page to view all of the pictures from the event, but below is a little preview.  Thanks to the Holiday Luncheon Committee and the many, many people who put countless hours into the preparation of the event.  This especially includes those who made the associated service project possible.  This was the fourth year we tied blankets to donate to the University Hospital Pediatric Dialysis Center, and it was the first year we also tied blankets to donate to the University Hospital Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Center.  This special service project is one for which countless Plant Operations employees donate their personal lunchtimes throughout November and December to tie blankets, including the big manly men (with the big hearts) in our numerous shops.  Words can't thank you enough!

We wish each of you a very happy and safe holiday time.  May you spend it with loved ones, relax and have fun, and stay warm.  We look forward to having another great year in Plant Operations!


See you next year!

Joint Effort

Recently, three shops from Plant Operations joined efforts to fabricate new storage cabinets for the volleyball team.  The structural frame was fabricated of steel tube by Clint Andrews (Metal Shop), and decorated with the beautiful formica finish by Dan Bills and Brent Dixon (Carpenter Shop).  The painting and lettering were completed by Dean Ottesen and Stephen Pratt (Paint Shop).  It's another example of the fine work our shops do.  It looks great, so if you get a chance, go check it out!
