Supply Chain Management Wide Events

The first event, the Year-End Blast, takes place after the fiscal year ends on August 31. The event is traditionally held during the end of September / beginning of October. The second event, the Fall Feast, takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Fall Feast
The Fall Feast is a Supply Chain Management wide celebration of the harvest season. Employees are served up the season’s bounty of ham, turkey and all the “fixin’s”. Employees will receive an invitation indicating time and place.

Year - End Blast
The Year-end Blast is a Supply Chain Management wide celebration of the end of the fiscal year recognizing the hard work and long hours employees put in to make sure everything is done by August 31st. Employees will receive an invitation indicating time and place.
