No Tricks, Just Treats!: Halloween at Jonathan Louis
Building on a long-standing tradition of annual Halloween costume competitions, this year, the JL Social Club extended the season of horror to a full month, hosting a series of “Freaky Fridays.” Each Friday featured a different costume theme, as well as competitive events held during the lunch hour.
Who is the JL Social Club? Composed of employee volunteers who represent each department, and different lengths of tenure (from 10 months to 25 years!), our ERG has a broad base of experiences and perspectives that help shape JL’s culture. In addition to holiday-themed events, our committee members are focused on finding ways to foster inclusivity and help team members to connect throughout the company. Future events include off-campus volunteer opportunities, blood drives, company-sponsored charity walks/runs, and educational “happy hours.”
1st Friday: Gothic Day, Donut Dilemma, & Mummy Time
2nd Friday: Horror Film Fest, Halloween Family Feud, & Box of Lies
3rd Friday: Super Hero/Villian, Halloween Movie Trivia, & Pumpkin Patch Fight
