Dear Jefferson Lab Community,
You're invited to attend the annual Children's Holiday Party on Saturday, Dec. 9 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the CEBAF Center atrium! The Jefferson Lab Activities Group (JAG) is excited to welcome you and your family to the lab to celebrate this holiday season.
Staff, scientific users and contractors are all invited to attend the event with their families. Steve Gagnon from our Science Education team will be making liquid-nitrogen ice cream complete with all the fixings! Celebrate with crafts, games, a bounce house, face painting and balloon art. Enjoy complimentary beverages and scrumptious food provided by MOMO's. And finally, the big man himself will make an appearance with a photographer on-site to capture those life-long memories with Santa. You won't want to miss it!
Volunteers are needed!
JAG needs your help to make everything run smoothly. Please sign up online to volunteer your time during the annual Children’s Holiday Party. We are grateful for all of the volunteers (and their teenage children!) who help us run the show. Volunteer as little or as much as you'd like! Please note that because this is a volunteer event, those volunteering or attending will not be able to charge their time.
Don’t forget those less fortunate this season.
JAG asks all who attend please consider bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the party for our Toys for Tots Drive. If you cannot make the party, collection boxes are available around the lab through Friday, Dec. 8. During the event, Toys for Tots representatives will pick up all Toys for Tots donations and distribute them to Hampton Roads-area children in need.

Get Connected Fall Festival
It has been four years since our last Fall Festival, and much has changed at the Lab since then. It is perfect time to Get Connected again with our co-workers - both new and old. JAG is inviting all JLab staff, scientific users and contract staff to come out to the Residence Facility field on Thursday November 2 from 3PM to 6PM. Enjoy some great BBQ and Fall brews along with music, games and activities that will help you get connected with colleagues you only get to see on Teams calls. There will be opportunities to win raffle prizes or just relax and catch up with old friends.
Peninsula Food Bank - Food Drive
As part of the Lab’s United Way campaign JAG is supporting the Food Bank of the Virginia Peninsula by sponsoring a food drive at the Lab for the remainder of October. We have placed PFB donation boxes at several locations around the campus including CEBAF Center, TED, Test Lab, MCC, ES&H building and SSC. If you cannot come to the Festival please drop a non-perishable donation at one of these locations before Nov. 2. We will have all donation boxes out on the field during the party. If you wish to make a monetary donation (cash or check) you can do that at the field as well. Please contact David Abbott (email@example.com) if you have questions.
JAG needs Volunteers
This is a big event, and we cannot make it happen without your help. There are many slots for volunteers that need to be filled. Please sign-up on the volunteer page here (2023 Fall Festival). Take note of the volunteer coordinator for your slot and contact them to get details on what you need to do.
Volunteering and attending this event can be charged on your time sheet, but there are several exceptions that you should be aware of. It is important for everyone to understand the following restrictions.
Staff may charge up to 2.5 hours for actual time participating in or attending the event. For example:
If you attend between 3-5 p.m., you may charge two hours to FALFST.
If you work the event between 3-4 p.m. and attend between 4-5:30 p.m., you may charge up to 2.5 hours to FALFST
Beer Tent Notes: Upon acceptance of a wristband a JLab staff member is considered officially off the clock and must either flex their work week to accommodate or take vacation time. Please coordinate with your supervisor.
Any staff member who volunteers at the beer tent may not charge time during their shift.
Staff may charge actual volunteer hours for pre & post event activities (outside of 3-6 p.m. event time).
Please note that the FALFST project code cannot be used for overtime. To avoid incurring any overtime charges, non-exempt staff must get approval in advance from their supervisor to adjust their regularly scheduled hours accordingly. For questions regarding timesheet charges, contact the Payroll Department.
Questions or clarifications on individual circumstances may be directed first to your manager or supervisor or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
