9/1/2007 new faculty picnic

Here's a fun tradition. In addition to all the meetings and formal meals with administrators as part of new faculty orientation, they have a big picnic for us. Families are invited and the folks who were the "newbies" the year before bring the side dishes and desserts. The university takes care of the main course which for us was 2 kinds of salmon and some yummy beef kabobs.

Last year's class had 21 folks in it, so the picnic was particularly large. There are only 8 in our rookie class. Sheena, who lives on the lake where I had my first kayak experience, hosts the annual event at her big Victorian home with large back yard and gorgeous gardens.
