And now for something completely different…

Secretary Clough’s monthly column has been a way for him to keep you up-to-date about what’s going on around the Smithsonian and to talk about issues that concern us all. This month, we’re trying something a bit different. Not everyone can turn out on the Mall for our annual staff picnic—a great way to meet your colleagues and learn more about the fascinating work we do. Here’s your chance to revisit—or check out for the first time— the 2013 staff picnic. Join the Secretary as he takes us on a video tour. We’re just sorry it’s not in Smell-o-Vision so you can get a whiff of the great food!
