Saint Louis University will host its annual Cannonball Picnic for University staff members from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 18, at Tegeler Field. Staff members will not be required to use vacation hours or leave time to participate.
To encourage a casual atmosphere at the event, staff are welcome to dress down that day if their work environment and schedule permits.
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.
Along with lunch, attendees will have the opportunity to win prizes. In order to be eligible, attendees must RSVP by Wednesday, Oct. 12. Human Resources encourages all attendees to RSVP in order to ensure an accurate food count.
