Last year we served over a 1000 meals and we are preparing to serve many more than that this year so in addition to all the cooking, serving, preparing pre-ordered food specialties we need help in all phases of work. We will need help clearing tables and resetting tables the night of the dinners (bus boy or gal). Ask the youth to come and help. We need traffic directors(within) during busy hours. We trust that the congregation will feel the need for their presence for this Festival to help work and make this another successful year.

The kitchen has schedulesheets ready to enter your name for the day and hour you can help.

We want to say a special thanks to the dedicated committee that has been meeting and planning this Festival for months and Pastor Pollock, our spiritual advisor.

We pray for a good attendance, for a successful Festival, and for our volunteers who put in tireless hours.
