Help Request for Chicken Pickup
I need help ! Next Mon., Oct 24th, 500+ lbs of chicken need to be picked up from the Gray Market and brought to the church. Mid to late afternoon would be the best time, especially if it is still so warm outside. Obviously a pick up truck would work really well !
Help Request for Preparing Chickens
And I could really use 1 or 2 folks to help prepare the chickens for cooking. From 8pm to 9:30pm ish on the 24th would do the job. Tracy D helped me last time and it was amazing how fast we did the job. I could do this alone, but it was really so helpful to have a friend with me. Tracy is out of town for this event, If I can’t get the chickens to the church, do you think folks would notice if we substituted hotdogs ? Call me if you can help 829-5166….. Thanks, Jeanne

Save the Date! Chicken Pie Supper on Friday, Oct. 28
To all you wonderful, enthusiastic volunteers out there,
Please mark your calendars right now and block out these dates:
Oct. 24, Monday, 10:30-11:30 am: Make dough balls
Oct. 25, Tuesday, 1-3:30 pm: Pick chicken
Oct. 27, Thursday, 9-11:30 am: Roll pie bottoms
Oct. 28 Friday, 10:30-noon and 12:30-2:30 pm: Roll pie tops & assemble Chicken Pies!
If working in the kitchen isn’t your thing, we also need a few people who can do tasks of shorter duration; for example, set up the tables, clean up and put things back to normal after the chicken pie supper, etc.
This event is a significant fund-raiser for our church, and it has earned a strong following, serving many people from surrounding towns. When we put on a successful chicken pie supper, we can give back even more to the community at large…it’s a win-win event!
Please be thinking about how you can help; we have many types of volunteer activities, i.e. something for everyone. To express an interest in helping make this a big success, call Lyn in the office at 829-3644, or email Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance, Mark Heath and Pam Ames
