DON’T FORGET THE RETIREMENT RECEPTION FOR CARLTON MABE

Please remember the retirement reception for Carlton Mabe scheduled for Monday, November 3 from 4 – 7 p.m. in Health Professions Building room HP210. Please put this date and time on your calendar and plan to attend!  If you have not already done so, please RSVP to sshelton@virginiawestern.edu by October 27.

We hope that you will also remember to take part in the special video that is being made for Carlton. Since Carlton had to leave before saying goodbye to his VWCC family, the Media Geeks  is preparing a special video to include campus sites as well as messages from VWCC peers, offices, etc. To schedule a time for a group or individual message to be recorded for this special video, email the help desk at helpdesk@virginiawestern.edu with the date and time that suits you or your group and the location. The help desk will enter a ticket and a member of the Media Geeks will be there at the date, time and location specified or they will contact you to reschedule if they cannot meet you at that time. Please participate in the video by scheduling either your individual or group recording soon.

Thanks for your help in making the reception for Carlton a special one that he will remember and laugh about for a long time!
