Annual staff picnic is Wednesday
The annual staff picnic will be this Wednesday from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. with tons of hot dogs and hamburgers, potato salad and baked beans, plus a silent auction and bake sale. Volunteers are needed, as this event normally serves approximately 450 people. So, please contact Ann Ford at 2067 or via email at to help. The staff picnic is the only fund raiser for the Staff Senate with the proceeds benefiting the Staff Senate Education Stipend. Last year, 10 individuals received $200 in educational stipends. Some of the silent auction items are gift certificates from: Outback Steakhouse, Heavenly Ham, Fat City, Cracker Barrel, Quiznos, West Washington Guest House, Edge Coffeehouse, Cowboy Grill, Couch's Barbecue, Munchy's and Candy Craze. Other donated items will be mentioned in Monday's Inside ASU. Mark your calendars and come join the fun to raise money for a worthy cause!
