Thanks to those of you who have submitted so far! Also, please include at least one fun fact (similar to the Five Questions in our ORSP Internal Newsletter) to add a personal dimension/connection point to your professional bio.
After receiving the input from the Biography Collection Form, I will meet with each of you to review a draft bio. Nothing will be published without your prior review and the Lead Team's review.

New Silverware is Here!

silverwareTo complete our compostable products mission, we now have new stainless steel silverware to use in place of the plastic silverware in the second drawer of the main kitchen. The new silverware will be placed in the same location and will include a new drying cylinder by the sink to place the washed silverware after use. Please remember to put clean silverware back in the drawer to prevent clutter by the sink.
