At the conclusion of the morning activities, there will be a catered lunch provided by Texas Roadhouse that you will not want to miss. The menu will include BBQ ribs, steak, baked potatoes, green beans, salad, rolls, and dessert.  Interdepartmental competitions will take place again this year, and dates are available below.

All Town offices will need to remain operational at all times of the day, so that Town business can still be conducted for the citizens of Aberdeen.  Staff will need to be rotated throughout the morning so that everyone has an opportunity to participate in the Safety & Health Day.  And for all those employees that participate, there will be drawings at the conclusion of the day at 4:00 p.m. for prizes.
