Civil Service Celebration set for August 10

July 19, 2017

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 [email protected] by Wednesday, July  26.
