of Staff Fest set for May 15
This year marks the 20th anniversary of staff day, and organizers have
the traditional assortment of entertainment, information, and food and drink
planned. The May 15 event will begin with the Apple FunRun and FunWalk in
Lullwater. The two-mile run begins at 10 a.m., and the one-mile walk begins
at 10:30. Participants are eligible for a daylong pass to the P.E. Center,
good only on May 15. First-place finishers and the two people completing
the races closest to a predetermined "wellness time" will be awarded
one-month memberships to the Blomeyer Health Fitness Center. Other prizes
will be awarded by the P.E. Center. For more information or to register
for the races, call 404-727-WELL.
Games will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and include volleyball on the
Quad near Candler Library. Volleyball participants should call Beth Grubb
at 404-727-5883 to register their co-ed teams (two or more women) of at
least six players.
The Blomeyer Center and Community Services will each have information
booths at Staff Fest. Because the event coincides with Clean Commute Week
(see article on page 5), the Community Services booth will have giveaways,
raffles, and information on alternative transportation and the new Hazy
Commemorative T-shirts will be on sale Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays,
May 4-13, at Emory Hospital's Asbury Court from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. They also
can be ordered from any one of 10 internal ordering sites at the main campus,
The Carter Center, Grady Hospital and Oxford. See the Staff Fest website
at <www. emory.edu/STAFF_FEST> for complete information.
Meal tickets are required for lunch and are available from departmental
Human Resources representatives. In case of rain, food will be served in
the DUC and games and entertainment will be held in the P.E. Center.
Volunteers are still needed for all shifts. For more information call
