On Thursday, April 21st, Department of Chemistry staff hosted the third annual Side by Side Clubhouse Stone Mountain Picnic as our annual service-oriented staff team building activity. Side by Side Clubhouse is a supportive social and rehabilitation community for individuals living with traumatic brain injury. Each year, Side by Side hosts the “Jawbones versus Sawbones” basketball game as a fundraiser for their social activities. The members of the clubhouse use the proceeds of this fundraiser to support special events like the Stone Mountain picnic. Department of Chemistry staff served as volunteers to run the picnic, grilling burgers, playing games, and making chemistry’s own liquid nitrogen ice cream! Thank you to Side by Side for providing our staff with this great team building opportunity and letting us share in your community!
