Service Recognition Dinner

Each year at the annual Service Recognition Dinner, Boston University honors those employees who have completed 10 and 25 years of service as well as those employees who are retiring from the University. This year the dinner will be held on April 29, 1998, at Metcalf Hall in the George Sherman Union.

Invitations will be mailed in March to employees who will have completed 10 and 25 years of service by June 30, 1998, and to employees who have announced their plans to retire from the University. Any eligible employee who is planning to retire this year, but who has not yet notified his or her dean or vice president, may call Joanne Letty, employee relations representative at the Office of Personnel at 353-4515 no later than March 20, 1998, to be included in this year's program. If you are planning to retire this year and wish to be recognized as a retiree at this year's Service Recognition Dinner, you must be at least 55 years of age and have completed at least 10 years of service by June 30, 1998.
