More than a picnic

The 2010 Johns Hopkins Picnic had a fresh look and feel with all-new entertainment, an expanded menu and games for all, including a Wii Sports Gaming Station, Midway Games and a Kid Zone. More than 1,000 members of the Johns Hopkins community gathered at the family-oriented event, held this year on June 25 on the grounds of Johns Hopkins at Eastern.

The annual picnic, sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration and organized by the Office of Work, Life and Engagement, was particularly special this year as it celebrated Jim McGill, senior VP for finance and administration, who is retiring. Initially established to create a sense of unity among employees and managers, divisions and departments, the picnic, under McGill’s leadership and with his office’s financial support, has grown substantially, and members of the Johns Hopkins community look forward to it each year.
