As we all reach day 28 of the government shutdown, Fairmont State University is making sure federal workers feel at home when visiting the campus by hosting ‘Federal Employee Appreciation Day’.
The campus looks to provide an opportunity for federal employees and their families to enjoy a day of fun activities for free. The Falcon Center will be open from 2 until 8 p.m., with activities like bounce houses, cornhole, giant jenga and other events. Employees and their families will also be provided with meal tickets to enjoy a buffet-style meal.
“This is just our way of saying to our community thank you for your service in these uncertain times. Welcome to our home. Our home is your home. Please enjoy this evening on us, free of cost and if the furloughs continue, we do hope to do more of these in the future.” said Lyndsey Dugan, vice president of university relations, recruitment and marketing.
The campus will also provide free tickets for families to enjoy both the men’s and women’s basketball games tomorrow night at the Feaster Center against Notre Dame.
