From Donna L. Belusar, Ph.D, ADEC CEO and President . . .

Welcome to the first day of Spring! The changing of seasons brings thoughts of being outside, summer fun and family time. It’s a perfect time to share our 2017 Employee Appreciation & Thank You Event.

Last year ADEC had a wonderful time at the Potawatomi Zoo. This year I am very pleased to share with you and your family a day at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair. The Elkhart County 4-H Fair is one of the largest fairs in the country. It has much to offer including great grandstand performances, activities for all ages, animals and rides. It truly is a northern Indiana event for everyone. I love it.

ADEC’s Employee Appreciation Fair Day Includes:

– Free admission passes for up to 2 adults and up to 3 children over the age of 9 (children under 9 are always free). These can be used on any fair day (July 21-29)!

– The choice between either $24 in clover cash (for food) or a sheet of ride tickets (22 tickets)

How to sign up:

– On June 1  you can sign up on the ADEC’s Employee website to reserve your tickets. You must reserve your tickets on this site between June 1- June 26. (Any reservations after that will not be honored.)

– You will put your employee name, department and employee number. Let us know how many (up to 2) adult and youth passes (up to 3 and only required for children over age 9) you’ll need.

– Pick between either:    $24 of clover cash for snacks    OR      a sheet of ride tickets.

– Tickets can be picked up after July 10th at B1.
