The Kite Research Institute Holiday Potluck

Mingle with staff, sample a new dish, share some laughs and build new memories with friends and colleagues. Refreshments, plates and utensils will be provided, however, we do not have the capacity to heat or cool your dish, so please plan accordingly. We ask that you print out and bring with you a list of ingredients for those of us who need to be careful of dietary restrictions. 

Come prepared to have fun this year as we are planning a little informal entertainment. There will be a piano on hand, and we encourage you to bring instruments and your singing voice should you wish to participate in a little sing-along fun.

Make sure to RSVP to Esther Oostdyk (esther.oostdyk@uhn.ca) with a description of your dish. 

We also plan to recognize the accomplishments of our scientists, students and staff. For this, however, we need your help. We are compiling a list of milestones both professional (awards, medals, etc.) and personal (marriages, babies, sports and talent competitions, etc.) from 2019. I would appreciate if you could send any suggestions about yourself or your colleagues to Talar Nersesian (Talar.Nersesian.@uhn.ca). Including photos would be appreciated.

And lastly, at the potluck we will announce the winner of this year’s Unsung Hero Staff Recognition Award. Nominations are now open. You can find out more details at www.kite-uhn.com/awards. I encourage you to think about individuals and/or groups at KITE who have routinely gone above the call of duty this year.
