FRIDAY NIGHT SUPPER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Friday night Supper committee is asking for new volunteers. We have had some of our volunteers retire after years of volunteer service. The Friday night supper team has always put forward a great effort to provide a quality meal and good Service to our Members. Their efforts have also provided good fundraising opportunities for Lodge Improvements and donations to local non-profits. We need your help to continue this high level of service. Positions needed: wait staff, prep work, dishwashers and buss people.
