A big THANK YOU to the entire Hospitality Services team for your continued efforts and support throughout another year..

It's hard to imagine that our summer conference season is underway - wishing Cliff, Mike, Patty and their team, all the best for another successful summer season. Next thing you know, it'll be September again! ☺

Our Great Hall Catering team is very excited about the second annual Mother's Day Brunch in the Great Hall on, you guessed it, May 13th. Kristian and his team have developed an interesting signature menu and the Western community certainly is embracing this initiative. Look forward to seeing some of you there.

There are lots of reno projects happening this summer. First off, let's have a look at what's happening in the Campus Eateries. We're excited to be introducing The FIXX, our own new in-house burger concept at Centre Spot. Our burgers will be made from 100% Canadian seasoned ground beef - no fillers, no additives, hormone-free and gluten-free. It will be located where Harvey's was and will feature specialty burgers, chicken, vegan and other sandwiches, and delicious poutine options. We'll be updating the equipment in the back kitchen, providing the team with a state-of-the-art grill, fryers and other equipment.

Another change will be at Lucy's. With the removal of the Tim Hortons kiosk, we'll be able to provide more seating to our guests. Fair-trade coffee will be the focus at the expanded coffee and baked goods area. We're also expanding the offerings at the Tims Express at Encounters in Social Science to include an artisan sandwich bar.

A few significant reno projects are planned in Rez Dining over the summer as well. At Sydenham, we're reconfiguring the front service line, including the interactive cooking area. Essex and Elgin will be boasting new floors for September and we're also streamlining the sushi production area in Saugeen.

To stay in touch with what's happening within our Division over the summer, I urge you to visit our staff site regularly. Here, you'll be able to access information related to our business as well as relevant news and upcoming events - all ONLINE! Don't forget, you can now also access scheduling and seniority information, as well as photos from various events, via the secure log-in area. Simply click here and login using your Western ID and password. We hope to continue to add new features to further enhance this communication tool.

As an extension of the leadership team's open door policy, please feel free to contact either myself or any member of the management team via this site. Your comments, suggestions, ideas and feedback are always welcome and greatly appreciated - whether related to our operations, special events or this site.

On behalf of the entire Hospitality Services leadership team, I wish you all the best for a safe and enjoyable summer. Rest up... September is just around the corner!
