UI hosts appreciation luncheons for flood relief workers July 17, 18

As a gesture of gratitude for all of the work that has been done to set the University of Iowa campus on the path to recovery after the flooding, UI faculty, staff and students are hosting appreciation luncheons for an estimated 630 flood relief workers at several locations on campus from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday and Friday, July 17 and 18.

The luncheons are sponsored by the UI Office of the Provost with faculty, staff and students from the affected buildings and departments volunteering to serve the barbecue-style meals to the contracted flood relief workers.

Thursday, July 17, meals will be served to BMS Catastrophe flood relief workers in Gibson Square (Eastside) and in the upper Hancher Parking Lot (Westside). Friday, July 18, meals will be served to Cotton Catastrophe flood relief workers in the North Theatre Building Lot (Lot #55, paralleling Riverside Drive).

Tom Rocklin, vice provost and dean of the University College, said the luncheons are an opportunity for the UI to show its profound thanks to workers for all the service they have given the UI.
