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.


BINGO CALLERS NEEDED

The Branch needs BINGO CALLERS to continue the fun Saturday afternoons for our Bingo players. The Branch proceeds from Saturday Bingo are used for charitable assistance in the Burlington community.

Please consider volunteering a couple of hours for your Branch on Saturday afternoons from 2 to 5 p.m. The more that volunteer, the less number of 3-hours-on-Saturday each caller would be needed. The more the merrier!

No experience? Not to worry. Members are available to train.

When you volunteer, you facilitate fellow members enjoying a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon and contribute to the financial assistance of those in need within the Burlington community!

Books Available

Did you know there are books available in the lounge for you to take home and enjoy? They are located just to the left as you enter the doors into the lounge (next to the coat rack).

Spare Change to the Pennie Jar on the Bar

All funds go toward paying down our mortgage.

Thank you for your support!

Colour Party needs members!

The Colour Party for Branch 60 is very much in need of a few new members to bolster our numbers. We are a kilted Colour Party with 40 years continuous service to Branch 60. We attend the monthly branch meeting and participate in 3 regular parades a year, plus any to which we are invited.. (i.e. Simcoe, London). There is not a large requirement in time so we can fit into most schedules. If you are interested, please either call Murray Sutherland at (905) 639-2686 in Burlington, or leave your name and number at the Branch 60 bar and I will certainly call back.
Thank You,
Murray Sutherland
Colour Party, Recruiting
