Penn Family Day: October 10
September 15, 2009, Volume 56, No. 03

Faculty and staff are invited to bring your family and friends to the 17th annual Penn Family Day on Saturday, October 10, 2009. You can cheer on our football team, tour the Penn Museum, or go for a skate at Penn’s Ice Rink. No matter what activities you plan to enjoy, be sure to kick off the day with the Penn Family Tailgate Party. All activities are hosted by the Division of Human Resources, in association with Penn Athletics.

If you’re interested in attending the Tailgate Party and/or football game, you’ll need advance tickets as well as your PennCard.  Keep in mind the party will be held at a new location this year—at Highline Park (31st St. under the Walnut St. Bridge, near the Left Bank building).  You can receive up to four tickets at no cost, and additional tickets are $8 each. But remember to order by the ticket deadlines below. You won’t need advance tickets for the Penn Museum and Ice Rink—just be sure to bring your PennCard.

Free parking will be available for Penn Family Day with a faculty/staff PennCard.  For more information, including maps, directions, event details, parking and a ticket order form, visit the Penn Family Day website at www.hr.upenn.edu/Quality/StaffRecognition/FamilyDay.aspx or contact the Division of Human Resources at (215) 898-1012 or QOWL@hr.upenn.edu.
