Free tickets, longer hours for 2012 Staff Appreciation Picnic

In an effort to acknowledge the dedication and hard work of JHU staff, university administration is making some important changes to the annual Johns Hopkins picnic.

What’s new? Tickets are free instead of $5, and the hours of the picnic have expanded to allow more faculty, staff and their families to enjoy the festivities.

The Johns Hopkins University Staff Appreciation Picnic—with food and beverages, DJ and dance floor, games and karaoke—will be held, rain or shine, from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 8, at Johns Hopkins at Eastern; shuttle schedules will be extended.

Tickets are required for entry and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. To find the ticket champion closest to your office and to request tickets, go to hopkinsworklife
.org/picnic. With your JHED ID, you can request up to five.

“This picnic is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and thank the university’s staff for their exceptional dedication and hard work,” said Daniel Ennis, senior vice president for finance and administration. “On behalf of the university leadership, we are thrilled to invite our staff and their families, as well as our faculty, to this special event.”
