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 email@example.com 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
