Who Knew Pie Could Be So Worthwhile

Jones-Harrison staff eat up for the chance to pie the management. All in fun and and to raise funds for employee appreciation

As part of Jones-Harrison employee appreciation activities, five members of the management team offered up their faces for a pie-in-the-face contest. Jars were made available so employees could “vote” with their dollars and change on who they would like to see pied. On decision day, residents joined in the fun by cheering on our contestants and having some pie – what else! But who would have the honor of tossing the pies? Well, 5 brave souls entered the pie-eating contest for that honor. In the end, there was a tie, so Nancy from Housekeeping got to pie Barb, the Director of Clinical Education/Infection Control and John from Maintenance – our clear winner in the pie eating portion – got to pie Judy, our Director of Human Resources. We appreciate all of our contestants, and especially Judy & Barb for being such good sports. Monies raised will help fun future employee appreciation events.  View the rest of the photos
