Tales from the road

FIRST FRIDAY-JUNE 5, 2015

Friends,

All good things must eventually come to an end. The Office of Audit Services recently reviewed Motor Pool operations and recommended suspending support for First Friday lunches. So it is with some sadness that we announce that June 5, 2015 will be the last First Friday event.

First Friday lunches have been held once per month on the first working Friday at the University Motor Pool for over seven years. We started these lunches as an opportunity for people with different schedules to pause from work and get together for lunch to enjoy the people connections and community aspect of working at a great University. We’ve seen the event grow from a simple potluck to one with crowds that regularly exceeded 500 attendees.

It’s been fun. We’ve enjoyed opening our shop to you, watching and participating in the formation of friendships and community. So please join us one last time as we celebrate the past and future of working together at OSU.

Menu:

This Friday we’re setting up a build your own nacho bar with meat and vegetarian options. You’ll be building up from a tortilla and tortilla chip base with over ten toppings to choose from. We hope to see you all there!

Thanks,

The Motor Pool Team
