City Manager's Message Nov. 10: Bonus Administrative Day on Nov. 12

Posted on November 10, 2021 at 4:21 PM by Don Mann

Nov. 10, 2021 — Did you know that November is National Gratitude Month? Actually, that makes sense considering Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away. Being thankful and practicing gratitude has a positive impact on psychological, physical and personal wellbeing. Reflecting on what we are grateful for is also an effective response to life’s stressful and chaotic moments. 

As we prepare to express our gratitude and honor our veterans on Thursday, the City Council and I would also like to express our gratitude to our workforce by designating this Friday November 12, 2021, as a paid Administrative/Bonus Wellness Day. We hope you use this day to relax and re-energize as we continue to navigate the challenges of being public servants to the citizens of Hampton.  We realize that some employees must continue to provide services. As we have done in the past, employees who are unable to take off November 12, 2021 will receive that time to use at a later date.

We thank you for all that you do each and every day to make our City an even better place to live, work, learn and play.

— Mary
