Pumpkin Carving and Pot Luck

Save the Date! Chicken Pie Supper on Friday, Oct. 27

To all you wonderful, enthusiastic volunteers out there,

Please mark your calendars right now and block out these dates:

Oct. 23, Monday, 1-2 pm: Make dough balls

Oct. 24, Tuesday, 1-3 pm: Pick chicken

Oct. 26, Thursday, 9-11 am: Roll pie bottoms

Oct. 27 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, cut up squash, peel and slice apples, mix topping and assemble apple crisp, 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
