2019 Employee Appreciation Ice Cream Social

May 16, 2019

The annual Employee Appreciation Ice Cream Social is set for Wednesday, May 29, beginning at 1 p.m. on Bascom Hill. Free ice cream will be served until 2:30 p.m. or until it runs out, whichever comes first.

All your favorite ice cream flavors will be on hand. There will once again be a lactose-free vanilla, gluten-free flavors and sugar-free frozen treats, in addition to other dietary alternatives.

Administrators, deans and directors will be scooping as a gesture of thanks for your hard work and dedication this academic year. This year, retiring UW Band director Mike Leckrone will attend as a special celebrity scooper, dishing out his own flavor, “March On LecKrone!” Members of the band will also play on the hill.

Work units are encouraged to be flexible with employees to allow them to come to Bascom Hill, or are encouraged to host celebrations in their own locations, especially for those units located off campus. In the event of rain on May 29, the Ice Cream Social will move to the Birge Hall lobby.
