Happy National Fun at Work Day! There is nothing more fun than daring to do something unexpected, and today 2,000 UW faculty, staff, students, and retirees will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Umbrella Dance. The event will take place at noon at beautiful Husky Stadium. The Husky Marching Band, UW Cheer Team, Harry the Husky, and Dubs will all be there to celebrate. It’s not too late to join us as a participant or spectator! If you can’t make it to Husky Stadium, see it all in real-time by watching UWTV’s webcast. The webcast will start around 11:30 a.m.:

 We will also be live-Tweeting the event. You can chime in with questions and comments using #wholeushake
