The ADAPT Community Network shared these events they have planned for their DSP's -

  • Each program will host a special recognition party - special breakfast, lunch, dessert hour or other festive occasion.  Each staff will recieve a gift to celebrate their hard work.
  • Random staff will be chosen for a raffle drawing throughout the month of September and win a $25 gift card.
  • Staff who have been nominated by peers as outstanding employees will be honored at a DSP Luncheon on October 15th.  On the day of the luncheon, one winner per program will receive - an awrd, a "day-off" certificate and a gift.
