Company Picnic Fun

This year’s company picnic was bigger and better than last year with an obstacle course, face painter, caricature artists, balloon twister, and a petting zoo!  VIU employees invited their families to enjoy the fun and we all had a great time!

A huge thank you goes out to the Facilities team and the student staff who helped make this year great – the food was a hit, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

This year, along with our annual raffle for door prizes, Courtney Hill coordinated a 50/50 raffle to raise money for the VIU Scholarship Fund.  Camilla Nunes was the lucky winner of the raffle and graciously donated back her winnings to the pot.  We raised a total of $450 for ours students!  Great job everyone!
