Cookie Friday

Cookie Friday

Having milk and cookies on Friday afternoons is one of our very favorite traditions at ChicagoCAC, and this week made it clear why we love it so much! By all accounts, each of our teams have had a hectic few days, and there’s nothing quite like a homemade treat to reset, relax and enjoy a few minutes with your colleagues before the weekend.
