Guess Who, What or Where?

WHO has always wanted to play the banjo?

Put your guess in the bucket in staff workroom by the end of the month to be drawn for a prize.

Congrats to Luan, she guessed correctly and was drawn from the bucket. The picture last month was of the epi-pen box in Nurse Tammy's office. Luan you can pick from the prizes or have jeans pass.
