They gave a party and everyone came. The Party on the GreenÓ drew nearly 4,800 Penn faculty and staff to College Green May 26 for a lunchtime treat. In addition to the free box lunch from Bon AppŽtit Catering (photo), the guests enjoyed a jazz performance by the Rich Rudin Quartet and got a chance to chat with President Judith Rodin and Executive Vice President John Fry. The party capped off the second annual Faculty and Staff Appreciation Days, a two-day event that included a health fair May 25. Human Resources has a fall version in the works as well: mark your calendars for Penn Family Day on Oct. 9 before the Penn vs. Fordham football game.
