Staff Senate hosts successful picnic,
Hundreds of ASU staff members
enjoyed the annual Staff Senate picnic last Wednesday at the Pavilion.
While there, they bid on prizes generously donated by a large number of
area merchants. The winning bidders were announced through e-mail
last week. The auction raised $1,457.50 and the bake sale netted
$191.95 for the Senate's discretionary fund. The extra food was donated
to City Youth Ministries to benefit participants. Congratulations to all who
were involved in planning, preparing and executing this terrific event.
See the Staff Senate web
page to learn more about the group and how it serves all ASU employees.

"Tuesday meeting notes, adding course" is much better than "Meeting" or
leaving the subject line blank.
