Throughout the Week

ONLINE APPRECIATION BLOG

Back by popular demand…take advantage of the appreciation blog to let your fellow co-workers know how much you appreciate them during VPSW:  May 2 – 6.  The blog will go live on the 2nd  and can be accessed at the following address:  http://vpsw.umwblogs.org.  You can also drop off your “thank you” at the Fairfax House and a Human Resources staff member will post them.  This is also a great week to send your  # 1 F.A.N ‘s to colleagues for free UMW gifts! 

DAILY PRIZE DRAWINGS 

Each day of the week, a lucky employee will be the winner of a $100 Macy’s gift card during VPSW.  A random drawing will take place and then the winner will be notified by email.
