Employees gather for annual Winter Event
LFCHD staff gathered Friday, Dec. 5, for the annual Winter Event, hosted by the Employee Association this year at the Embassy Suites off Newtown Pike.
Employees got to choose food options featuring a taco bar, a salad bar and a “Kentucky” bar with chicken tenders, ham and mashed potatoes, with a vegetarian pasta option also available. Each table featured cheesecake for dessert.
Erika Abe, co-anchor of Fox-56’s 10 p.m. newscast, spoke to staff about the work the health department does for the community. Abe, who has a degree in health communications, commended employees for keeping Lexington healthy.
Board of Health Chair Scott White and Commissioner Dr. Rice Leach followed with congratulatory speeches to the staff before turning the day over to co-hosts Estephany Romero and Cristina Hiten. Between door prizes, Communications Officer Kevin Hall presented a look at some of 2014’s highlights as selected by staff.
