This year's Cannonball Picnic will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24, at Marquette Field, across from Tegeler Hall. In the event of inclement weather, the picnic will be held at the Simon Recreation Center.
The picnic is held each year to recognize the contributions of SLU staff and gets its name from the battlefield injury suffered by St. Ignatius in 1521.
Attendants who registered before the Oct. 17 deadline are eligible to receive door prizes that include gift certificates to Jazz at the Bistro, Hotel Ignacio, the St. Louis Symphony, Crave and Triumph.
Shuttles will be available to bring staff members over from the Medical Center to the event location.
To encourage a casual atmosphere at the event, staff may dress down that day if their work environment and schedule permits. Please know that you will not be required to use vacation hours or leave time to participate.
