When Faith learned about Greyston's open hiring policy, benefits, and apprenticeship program, she knew what she wanted. Her relentless phone calls and persistance paid off in a full-time position in December 2001. She was then 43, a struggling single parent who had been in and out of jobs where she never felt like more than a "punch-card number." From the beginning, each learning experience and opportunity to teach others "made me feel proud," she says.

Faith thrives on challenges, from the food safety course she completed to the computer skills she is gaining. "I ask questions," says Faith, an Assistant Supervisor in Training. "I'm never afraid to ask questions.

A Winter Wonderland Canival...

Greetings all!

Just yesterday, Greyston Bakery held its annual "Holiday Carnival"- and a great time was had by all! The brownie artisans were all invited to have a little fun by participating in a number of different carnival-inspired games at which you could win tickets. These tickets could then be used used in the raffles that were to be held later on in the afternoon. Some of the games were actually thought up by folks right here at the bakery- like the one I've dubbed 'ring the reindeer' shown on the left.

After a while of playing games, it was time to raffle off some goodies. Up for grabs were an iPod Nano, DVD player, and a digital camera, among other things. Every ticket that one placed in a raffle item's bucket would increase his or her chances of winning the item. After 15 or so minutes of deliberation, the carnival-goers decided how they would distribute their tickets, and let the rest up to fate. Unfortunately, not everyone won a raffle prize- but everyone did get a gift from the bakery.

Lastly, some had chosen to participate in a 'secret Santa' before we broke for a nice Holiday lunch! The food was delicious and everyone left the meal with a full belly. I wish it were the Holiday season more often...Remember, just enter BCORP09 at checkout and you get 10% OFF your purchase at our webstore until the New Year!

Enjoy your week,
