Have you lost something? No really, is there something you just cannot find lately. Well it is probably in the main lobby lost and found. There are tshirts, hoodies, aprons, winter coats, gloves, hats, a few pair of sneakers, a bunch of lunch boxes, many water bottles, a baby blanket, some eye glasses, backpacks, gym clothes, ice packs, band shirts and just a general assortment of lost goodies. So please take a moment today or this week to scan the tables in the main lobby for your lost goods. At the end of the year these items will disappear forever.  

Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have sweet and sour chicken. In the Grill line you can have chicken parm and in the On the Go line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches. Have a great day, do your best, and remember to always strive for 5.
