Workers at Quadco’s Northwest Products facility in Archbold will soon be able to get lunches of SUBWAY® sub sandwiches.
Bruce Abell, Quadco Executive Director, told members of the Quadco Administrative and Non-Profit boards on Tuesday (Oct. 23) that they will offer workers the chance to order items from the SUBWAY® menu for their lunches. Their orders will then be delivered so their food will be as fresh as possible.
He said the lunch offerings are expected to start next week.
He said there is a similar program for the workers at Quadco’s Stryker building, but it was a more complicated process to set up the program at the Archbold facility and ensure a fresh product.
Van drivers are needed for the countywide transportation system in Williams County that Quadco is set to operate. Mr. Abell said the center is advertising for drivers for the vehicles that will provide transportation to the citizens of Williams County.
Applications are available at Quadco’s Stryker building. Resumes may be sent to the attention of the Assistant to the Executive Director, Quadco Rehabilitation Center, 427 N. Defiance Street, Stryker, OH 43557.
The board members approved the 2013 fiscal year budget at Tuesday’s meeting, and voted to amend the scale for the board self evaluation instrument. Board members said they wanted to make the scale more descriptive, which should give the board members better information that they can use to make improvements if needed.
Mr. Abell encouraged board members to attend an area county board inservice sponsored by NOWAC at The Defiance College on October 30. He told the board members that the session will explain the
Employment First Initiative and how the emphasis on community employment can make a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities.
The board members toured a “haunted barn,” next to the building in Stryker. The former bus barn has been decorated by staff members for a Halloween party at the center October 31. Mr. Abell said participants can tour the barn that day, then return to the building for a dance with music by a DJ, a pumpkin-decorating contest and a costume contest.
Program Director Philip Zuver said that clubs at Quadco continue to be active. He said a group was planning to make a trip the next day to Sauder Village at Archbold. He said another group recently visited the
Independence Dam State Park, while another group went to the Defiance Center and prepared a meal everyone enjoyed.
Marketing Director Bill Priest reported that the center received a donation from GenFed Federal Credit Union in Bryan. The credit union provided a check of $122 as a part of their annual “Warm the Soles” campaign.
The funds will be used for events such as the upcoming Christmas party for the participants at Quadco, according to Mr. Priest, which can not only warm the soles, but some hearts as well.
