Thank goodness for staff!

All UC Davis staff members are invited to the 2012 Thank Goodness for Staff Picnic on Wednesday, May 9.

The annual picnic showcases and celebrates UC Davis employees and their invaluable contributions to the campus. 

Activities leading up to and during TGFS include bowling, golf, volleyball tennis, raffle and logo contests as well as a run-walk. There is even a Guess the Weight contest— see the photo, and find out how to enter this event.

Sponsored by the UC Davis Staff Assembly, TGFS will take place from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Hutchison Intramural Field, next to the West Entry Parking Garage.

Staff is encouraged to help us “Storify” just how great Thank Goodness for Staff is. Use social media (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, etc.) to share your photos/thoughts related to TGFS — just insert the hashtag #UCDavisTGFS into your caption or comment so we can find your posts. We’ll get a story in Dateline as soon as we can after the event. Also, watch for a home page headline.
