There is no better way to celebrate one of the hottest months on record than Olin’s annual Ice Cream Social. More than 100 attended the July 31 event in The Atrium including faculty, staff, and their children. A reported nine gallons of ice cream were consumed along with 200 chicken skewers! Pretzels, nachos, toasted raviolis, fruit and spinach artichoke balls were also on the menu for those who chose to eschew the frozen treat of the day with innumerable toppings!
There was a Cake Walk contest with prizes from “Nothing Bundt Cakes.” A balloon artist, face painter, bubble machine, and music rounded out the entertainment.
And at the risk of putting a damper on the joy of gluttony, Emily Paige, Employee Wellness Manager was on hand to present a prize. Ben Cox, facilities staffer, was recognized for earning 2nd Place in the University-wide WashU Moves walking challenge. Congratulations, Ben! You inspire us and deserve an extra scoop of of ice cream!!
Thanks to the Staff Committee who organized the event and to the Aramark staff for creating and serving the sweet summer feast.
Committee members: Konnie Henning, Katie Wools, Earl Banez. Sherri Whaley, Amanda DeBord, Rachel Shelton, Kim Miller, Shante Redden, Stacy Pearson
