URGENT!!! FISH & CHIP VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!
There have been quite a few new members with emails over the past year. Not all may be aware that the Branch is only able to fulfill its mission** (see below) due primarily to 120 volunteers and good financial management.
As one would expect, over time, the number of volunteers would gradually decline unless new volunteers come forward to lend a han d for their Branch. Right now, volunteers are urgently needed; specifically for the weekly fish & chips dinners . There is no question that without the income from fish & chips, the Branch would not be able to continue operations; the doors would close! Jackie Lawrence coordinates/manages the volunteers for fish & chips.
The volunteer positions include: - greeters who direct customers to tables - cash/table-ticket - servers who bring the hot meals to the customers' tables - pies sales - cole slaw preparation (Friday morning) - plater (in kitchen filling orders of fish & chips) - plate finisher (in kitchen: buns, butter, cole slaw, lemons) - dipper (in kitchen flour-coating fish, submerge in batter) - chips cook - fish cook Volunteers for the fish & chips weekly dinners only volunteer one Friday a month - there are 4 teams, one for each Friday in the month. Volunteer time is pretty minimal: 2 to 3 hours (meals served 5:00 to 7:00) - not really that much of a time commitment but oh so very important to the Branch.
Please decide to help keep your Branch financially viable by saying “yes” to this latest call for volunteers - ( newer members: hint, hint). ** Remembrance of those who died serving Canada for freedoms; serving veterans & their families ; financial aid to hospitals, hospices, charities likely to be needed by veterans & their families; youth :education, sports; air/army/sea cadets; boy scouts, girl guides); serving the community with volunteering.
