JLab employees, their immediate family members and users are invited to the Jefferson Lab Activities Group/JSA Oktoberfest RESCHEDULED for Thursday, Oct. 28, from 3-6 p.m. in the field behind the SURA Residence Facility.
Volunteer participation is critical to its success, according to Dave Williams, JAG chair. A number of volunteer positions still need to be filled. To volunteer, visit the JAG Oktoberfest volunteer sign-up webpage today.
The Oktoberfest will feature Brunswick stew, chili, grilled foods and beverages, an adults' costume contest and games and activities for all ages. The games and activities are on the event poster and on the JAG webpage. Children are encouraged to wear costumes.
With the Oktoberfest moving to Thursday, the Food Drive that the JAG is sponsoring has been extended by one day and will now end on Oct. 28, according to Williams. Please bring new, canned or boxed, nonperishable food items to the food drive drop boxes located in the ARC, VARC, MCC, CEBAF Center and Test Lab lobbies. Food donation drop barrels will be near the entry points to the Res. Facility field the day of the Oktoberfest. All donations will be delivered by the JAG to the Peninsula Food Bank.
Parking for the Oktoberfest: Please park your vehicle in the expanded CEBAF Center parking lot and walk to the field. Please don't park your vehicle in the Residence Facility lot or along Rattley Road.
Also during the Oktoberfest, winning tickets will be drawn for the two iPads that are part of the lab's United Way fund-raising campaign. Tickets are $1 each and are available for purchase from 12-1 p.m. through Wednesday, Oct. 27 in the CEBAF Center lobby, as previously announced. All raffle ticket proceeds go to the United Way.
United Way pledge forms are available online; access the form from the online donation link found on: http://www.uwvp.org/give_help/index.php.
Hard copy forms are available at the VARC, ARC and CEBAF Center front desks, as well as in Building 85. Please send or deliver completed forms to Joshua Cameron in CEBAF Center, Room B214, Mail Stop 12 B, by Wednesday, Nov. 3. Pledge forms may also be picked up at the United Way Raffle ticket sales table in the CEBAF Center lobby during lunch times through Oct. 27.
