Q: Can residents be updated on the beneficiary for the Employee Jeans Day each month?

Each month employees have the opportunity to support a local philanthropy by donating a minimum of $1 to the chosen cause on the designated “Jeans Day.” Everyone who makes a donation on the designated day may wear jeans to work that day, hence the name “Jeans Day.” This initially started about a year and a half ago to support a fellow employee who was battling Leukemia. Each month, a new beneficiary is chosen to be the recipient of the money raised through these Jeans Days.

Q. What is the history of Groundhog Day and how accurate has this prediction been in the past?

With all of the hype around the Super Bowl, many of us had forgotten about Groundhog Day this past Sunday. With the recent accumulations of snow it should come with no surprise that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and we are in store for another six weeks of winter!

Q. I have heard about a recognition event Meadowlark Hills is throwing for employees. How are employees recognized at this event?

The event is right around the corner! This year’s Annual Employee Recognition Event is coming up the end of February.

Every year we host an event to show appreciation to all of our employees for their years of service to Meadowlark Hills. 

All employees are invited to attend and partake in the evening’s festivities to thank them for all of the hard work they have done in the past year.
