   Housekeepers clean up during celebration week
MISSISSIPPI — Held every year during the second full week of September, Environmental Services Week or International Housekeepers Week is a time dedicated to recognizing the efforts of hard-working custodial staff members. The past few years, housekeeping and EVS staffs have worked harder than
ever keeping up with new cleaning and sanitizing protocols to ensure the safety of employees and guests.
Mississippi casinos celebrated their housekeeping teams in a variety of ways. In Vicksburg, a housekeeping appreciation day at WaterView Casino Hotel included an ice cream party with gifts for all housekeeping staff.
Harlow’s Casino Resort & Spa in Greenville celebrated the week with
daily activities, including special meals and ending with a formal banquet and recognition ceremony. Director of Hotel Operations Lawrence Davis and Carolyn Griffin, assistant manager of hotel operations, expressed their gratitude to the custodial employees, who received
a T-shirt that read “Together we make a
Harlow’s Casino Resort & Spa
difference — Environmental Service.”
In Tunica, Gold Strike’s team members celebrated the housekeeping department
throughout the week starting off with a pep rally. The festivities continued with
a pizza party and trivia and concluded with a lunch reception featuring games, giveaways and dancing. Team members had a great time celebrating the housekeeping department’s contributions to the success of Gold Strike’s daily operations.
