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. 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 james2@maine.rr.com.

Thank you in advance, Mark Heath and Pam Ames

Thank you!

Between George and Jon getting 503# of chicken to the church Mon night, and then having Patrick and Chris come in at 5:30AM Tues to help process or prepare it for cooking, we broke all sorts of efficiency records for this segment of the “event” …..time wise, especially. I could not have asked for better help. Thanks, guys. ( Can we talk about Feb ! ? ) Jeanne
