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.

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

Don’t wait to be called—you call her.

Marty and Madge 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, PRAY for a successful Festival, and PRAY for

volunteers who put in tireless hours.
