Civil Service Celebration set for August 10

All civil service/operating staff are cordially invited to have fun, food and mingle with co-workers at the Annual Civil Service Celebration (formerly StaffFest). The event will be held on Thursday, August 10, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Duke Ellington Ballroom in the Holmes Student Center.

The menu will include hot dogs, veggie burgers, hamburgers and more. Serving will end at around 1 p.m.

The ever-popular dunk tank is back this year! Join the fun and have a ball – that’s three balls for $2. New this year is a cream pie toss. For just a dollar you can throw a pie. There will be some pretty important people to dunk and smoosh!

There’s also a 50/50 raffle to help build our Operating Staff Council Dependent Scholarship fund. Tickets are one for $1, six for $5, and 13 for $10. The drawing will immediately follow the celebration and the winner will receive half of whatever cash is raised. Last year, this fund-raiser awarded three deserving NIU dependents with $1,000 scholarships each for fall 2017.

To register for the Civil Service Celebration, send an email with your choice of entrée (hot dog, veggie burger or hamburger) to by Wednesday, July  26.
