TUFA WELCOME BACK PICNIC!
As we steel ourselves for the academic year ahead, there yet remain some fragments of summer left to enjoy. To that end, TUFA members and their families are invited to attend a Welcome Back picnic on September 3rd at the Riverview Park and Zoo (1230 Water Street, close to main campus). We have reserved Picnic Shelter 2 (see attached map) with parking close by.
The picnic will run from 12:00 to 3:00. Members with children are encouraged to bring along frisbees, soccer balls, croquet gear and any other games not involving bouncy castles (Park rules) or sharpened projectiles (TUFA rules). Of course, the Park also has a children's playground with splash pad, a miniature train, and the zoo exhibits themselves to be enjoyed (see Park Info for more information). For the safety of animals in the zoo, pets (with the exception of working service dogs), alcohol, balloons and drinking straws are not permitted on site.
To facilitate the ordering of food, please rsvp to TUFA and do let us know if you have any special dietary needs. The Association's email list for LTAs may not be up-to-date with regard to new LTA hires and so Chairs are asked to ensure that new TUFA members in their department receive this invitation. . . .
