Help deck the halls for UCOP’s 2011 Holiday Faire at Franklin

All floors at UCOP’s Franklin Building are invited to participate in a friendly decorating competition in preparation for the 2011 Holiday Faire, which will happen throughout the day on Friday, Dec. 9.

Festivities will begin with cider and sweets, 8 to 9 a.m. in the Franklin Lobby, served by senior leaders. From 2:30 to 4 p.m., bites of turkey, hors d’oeuvres and sweets will be served up in three locations: in Lobby One and on the fifth and twelfth floors.

Events at Franklin will be accompanied by the holiday harmonies of the UCOP Singers, whose repertoire includes traditional Christmas carols and songs from other nations and faiths.

If you are located in another building, you are welcome to team up with a department or floor at Franklin to take part in the decorating festivities. The Kaiser building 2nd Friday breakfast will also have a special holiday theme, hosted by Provost Larry Pitts and Vice President Dwaine Duckett.

So why not showcase your creative talent with some holiday flair? Holiday decoration judging will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. the day of the party, with judges spending a few minutes on each floor. The winner gets bragging rights and a mention with photos in Link.

For everyone’s safety, please be sure to follow UCOP’s safety tips for decorating.

The holiday party is funded entirely though donations from UCOP managers to show their sincere appreciation for all that you do. Don’t miss this opportunity to visit with your colleagues and celebrate our collective accomplishments.
