ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Healthcare)
I am pleased to announce and invite you to attend the annual All Staff Appreciation Picnic, brought to you by the UCSD staff associations, to be held on Friday, August 12, 2005, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Sun God Lawn. "Achieving the Extraordinary" is a tropical island theme for this year's picnic. All members of the campus community are encouraged to attend.
Picnic activities will include the 23nd annual Vice Chancellors Volleyball Tournament (for further information, contact Ed Abeyta via email at email@example.com), the perennial cakewalk, games, arts and crafts vendor fair, the RadHatter and face painting, music, and food. In addition to many specialty food plates sold by staff associations, the UCSD Staff Association will provide free treats of corn-on-the-cob, watermelon, Hawaiian ice, and popcorn. The specialty entrée plate offerings sold by the staff associations are the principal fundraisers for these organizations. So, please join the campus community in supporting the staff associations.
Supervisors are encouraged to grant 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 job duties.
Free parking will be available in lots 207 and 208 (north of Muir College) during the picnic. Picnic information is available at: http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/staffassociation or by contacting Ellen Erenea via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Freeda Warren via email at email@example.com.
I hope that you can join the UCSD staff associations and other members of the UCSD family for the "Achieving the Extraordinary" All Staff Appreciation Picnic.
