Recognition and Prizes for Public Service Week

Guess the Number of Jelly Beans Prize

Donated by Denise Schuh, a lemonade/tea dispenser filled with jelly beans would go home with the person who guessed the closest number of jelly beans in the dispenser.  There are 1064 jelly beans and the prized owner of the dispenser and thousands of calories is Lori Baker who guessed 1100 jelly beans!  Way to count those jelly beans Lori!

Name the Employee and Recognition Line-Up Prize
