Staff Appreciation Picnic Tuesday, May 12th

To: UCSC Staff

From: Ricki Carr, Chair Staff Advisory Board

Please join the Staff Advisory Board and Chancellor George Blumenthal for the Staff Appreciation Picnic on Tuesday, May 12th, from 11:30-1:30 p.m. on the East Field (OPERS).

This is an opportunity to express appreciation for the great work staff contributes to the campus throughout the year. The Picnic is an outdoor event and shade tents will be limited, so we encourage staff to bring a hat and/or sunscreen. Blankets are welcome if you would like to sit on the grass.

Please RSVP as soon as possible to:

We need your RSVP by Friday, May 1st. Group reservations are encouraged. This helps us to estimate the amount of attendees. (Your RSVP is VERY IMPORTANT. We want to ensure that we have enough food for everyone attending.)

Some highlights of the event are:

* Mexican Cuisine for all staff

* Musical entertainment provided by staff musicians

* A raffle will be held every half-hour for great prizes

* Booths displaying staff services, benefits, and activities on campus

Due to limited availability of campus shuttles, we are providing free parking in the East Remote Parking lot from 11-2 p.m. for staff who work off-campus. We encourage those coming from off-campus to carpool with their co-workers so as to limit the amount of cars.
