These sound like great fun!!! 
Here at Saint Joseph's, we are having fewer activities than years past,
but still having a lot of fun. Breakfast was provided on Monday. Ice
cream is being provided one day, lunch another. One of the techs
designed a T-shirt - most everyone bought one. Our contest is "Little
Known Facts". The employees try to match the little known fact with the
name of the person it involves - e.g. went to High School with a
murderer, married the same man twice, was suspended from HS 3 times,
etc. Everybody is running around with their papers trying to find out
who fits the "Little Known Fact". On Friday, the lab employee of the
year will be announced and there will be a drawing for prizes. A fun
time is being had by all!!

>2. We are having lunch provided everyday by generous vendors. Pizza, El

>3. We have a raffle after one of the lunches and we usually have 40 or more

>6. We gave each lab employee a small gift. This year it is post-it notes.
>They have the hospital logo on them and at the bottom they say: ...from a

>As you can see, we treat this as more of a celebration, although we do put
