Prizes Sought for UW Draws
In 2007, the U of G community raised $441,000 for the United Way of Guelph and Wellington. This outstanding effort has helped support more than 80 local programs serving people in this region.
Most of these funds are raised through employee donations. One way that we acknowledge and encourage employee giving is by having incentive prize draws. Each year, we've been fortunate to receive donations from faculty and staff to use for these draws. Prizes have included items such as homemade desserts, wine, gift certificates for restaurants and spas, and golf shirts.
If you could provide a gift-in-kind donation for the 2008 campaign, it would be very much appreciated. Please contact me at Ext. 53116 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support.

Thanks for the Fond Farewell
I would like to express my sincere thanks to each and every staff member of Human Resources for all their goodness to me when I retired from the University.
To all the University staff who came to the drop-in and gave cards, gifts, flowers, words of encouragement and donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, a sincere thank you as well. All of this will be very fondly remembered.
My years at U of G were truly great. Good luck to each and every one as you continue on your journey.
