ROCHELLE — Luckily for 10 Rochelle Foods managers, it was a warm day on Sept. 15,when they plunged into a water “dunk” tank to raise funds for Rochelle Child Care Center. The managers, who spent about 20 minutes in and out of the water, sacrificed their dry clothes during Rochelle Foods’ “Quality Appreciation Day” in which 3,400 employees, as well as their family members and friends, came out to enjoy the carnival-like atmosphere.

The appreciation day event, which is held every few years, is a function set up by Rochelle Foods that allows employees to have fun and mingle. Some of the events this year included a jousting game, a bounce house, picnic, the dunk tank and also a DJ for entertainment.
