A beautiful Berkeley day for Summerfest 2012

Campus staff took a well-earned work break Wednesday to attend Summerfest, UC Berkeley's annual staff-appreciation event. At the foot of the Campanile, hundreds enjoyed a sunny afternoon of socializing, music, food, fairground games and giveaways. Staff were invited to tweet impressions and photos from today’s Summerfest 2012, the annual staff-appreciation event. Enjoy!

Boston Banks III, a staffer with Residential and Student Service Programs, was there astride his purple Harley-Davidson — in the "Life After Five" area showcasing employees' talents, hobbies and crafts. “In tough economic times like these it can be difficult to show staff how important and valued they are,” he said. “This kind of event is a really, really good way to do that and it's great to see such a broad mix of employees, from top to bottom, mingling and chatting and having fun together."
