We are Stanford: Welcome to Fall '21

September 27, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Frost Amphitheater

All staff are invited to a celebration as the fall quarter gets underway, to reconnect in this beautiful outdoor venue! Activities include a free concert by the Latin Rhythm Boys, an onstage welcome from our President and Provost (at 12:30), a free individual box lunch, photo stations, and some fun surprises. Please bring your mask, a blanket/towel to lounge on the lawn, and enjoy the camaraderie! You'll also be welcomed by many of our leaders and by several staff groups.

In addition, you'll be able to participate in The COVID19 Remembrance Project: Apart-Together art installation project by painting a petal to join other people's petals to form flowers. Over 600 flowers will represent the more than 600,000 lives lost to COVID in the US. 

Let us know if you'll attend!

Please RSVP (the link is in the lefthand column) so we have enough food and surprises; food and surprises are available until they run out. The event will be held rain or shine.
