On Monday, October 12th the League hosted an All-Staff Meeting, which also served as the first annual picnic at Griffith Park. We were fortunate to have the preschool staff join for the first time.
Thanks to the organization and planning efforts of Yvonne Bradshaw and Stephanie Newman (our Human Resources staff), the day was filled with fun, food and information. Our CEO (Melanie Merians) opened the event with updates on the positive direction the Assistance League of Los Angeles is headed toward.
Fun activities included a scavenger hunt and food carts loaded with hot dogs, french fries and frozen treats to beat the heat. Teams got together and played a creative game of tic-tac-toe to brush up on League history and services and finally, a pumpkin decorating contest!
At the end of the day we learned not only more about the services the League provides, but also that the competitive spirit runs deep within us all. Thank you to Andy Goodman (Board President) for coming out and joining us. Her words of encouragement and gratitude were very inspiring! We look forward to getting together again in December to celebrate the holidays.
