SAVE THE DATE! TEEN SERVE NEEDS OUR HELP!!
We are in need of 3 volunteers to make and serve a meal July 13th!
We will be feeding the volunteers who are packing up and cleaning out the school after the campers leave. Lunch
needs to be served at noon in the Pine Island elementary school. (There was a location change from the High School
to the Elementary School.)
We will be feeding and serving 25 to 30 people, not including any of our own crew. Feel free to join in for lunch.
We will need a main course, salad or chips, beverage (water is fine or a beverage cooler with ice water, tea, lemon-
ade, etc) dessert is optional. Keep it simple! There is no access to the school kitchen, so food will need to be ready to
eat when you arrive. We should have outlets and chords available if there are crock pots or roasters to plug in.
There will be paper plates, cups, napkins, and silverware at the school for you. We can choose the menu. Sloppy joes
are already on the menu for previous days.
There will be people at the school available to help carry things inside.
Please let Pastor Marggi know ASAP!
