May 16, 2012 | A rainy afternoon didn’t keep staff from celebrating the Spring Fling on Friday, May 11. The annual all-staff party, held indoors at Center Green, featured a new event: the UCAR Olympics. (See slideshow.)
Participants divided into teams, chose countries to represent, and proceeded on a circuit of activities that included decorating flags, hula-hooping, playing jacks and croquet, and acting out skits and songs. All participants got special VIP status at the party, letting them jump to the front of the beverages line.
After the UCAR Olympics, Event Services served up a tasty international spread. The party was sponsored by EAC.
