"Coolest Staff Under the Sun" is the theme for this year's staff appreciation picnic sponsored by the UCSD Staff Association. Join your co-workers on Friday, August 16, from 11:30-1:30 p.m. at the Sun
god for fun under the sun. (Note that the picnic is starting a half-hour later this year). All University employees and their families are invited to attend this fun-filled event.
ACTIVITIES: The 14th Annual Vice Chancellors' Volleyball Tournament; a hula hoop contest and 3-legged, gunny sack, and cucumber races (great prizes awarded!); cake walk; great music (last year's DJ back by popular request); an arts and crafts vendor fair; bake sale; door prize raffles; and clowns who will paint faces and make balloon animals.
EATS: A variety of foods will be available for purchase including hot dogs; veggie dogs (we've ordered many more this year--they sold out before noon last year!); hot links; fried rice; lumpia; teriyaki chicken skewers; Chipwich ice cream and juice bars. FREE popcorn, watermelon, and snow cones for all picnic participants.
BAKE SALE AND CAKE WALK: We need your help! We would like to have a variety of baked goods such as cakes, cookies, brownies, and pies for the bake sale and cake walk. Anyone who donates baked goods will receive a coupon for a free hot dog or veggie dog at the picnic. Bake sale items can be dropped off the morning of the picnic from 7:30-8:30 a.m. at Gilman Drive Information Booth or the Shuttle Stop at Torrey Pines Center South. Please be sure to label cakes for the Cake Walk separately. Contact Susanna Pastell at x46310 if you need to make other arrangements for drop off. All proceeds benefit the UCSD Staff Association Scholarship Fund.
T-SHIRTS: Really hot-looking picnic t-shirts featuring the Sun god and the picnic theme will be available for purchase, sizes L and XL for $10.00 at the Staff Association Information Booth (supply is limited so first-come, first-served). Proceeds benefit the UCSD Staff Association Scholarship Fund.
RELEASE TIME: Supervisors may allow employees two hours of release time in addition to the regular half-hour for lunch to attend the picnic if the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required duties.
Be there or be square! We look forward to seeing all of the "Coolest Staff Under the Sun" at this year's staff appreciation picnic!!
