Monday Memo – November 28, 2016
TO: ALL STAFF
DATE: 28 NOVEMBER 2016
• If you are able to come to the Station Christmas Party and have not yet signed up, you must do so by noon today. Sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board across from the time clock.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and all are “recovered” from the festivities. Sweeps are over and it’s a bit difficult to believe that we are into December on Thursday!
• Thursday and Friday = Pat and Brian Lane will be in town for employee meetings. The goal of these meetings is for the Lanes to listen and to get to know employees better. If you have not scheduled an individual meeting and wish to do so, see your Department Head for available time periods.
• Friday at 3PM = Full Staff Meeting in the Studio
• Saturday 6-9PM = Station Holiday Party
All employees now have Station emails so no Monday Memos will be printed out as everyone has the ability to get them electronically.
• We didn’t have a drawing last week, so no winner! This week, we will again give away a Crime Watch Daily Flashlight/Gadget. You can sign up for your chance to win on the bulletin board across from the time clock. Per usual procedure, we will draw for a winner Friday morning and the announcement made in the next Monday Memo
• There is a small collection of miscellaneous “stuff” (paperbacks that hopeful authors have sent us, CD’s etc.) on the credenza in the Lobby. If you see an item or two you would like to have, feel free to take it.
