Your help will be required with setup, providing beverages and clean up. The expectation is that each attending family will provide something, be it a meat, potato/ rice/ pasta/ bread, soup, vegetable or dessert. You don’t have to provide for 100 – just 8 – 12 servings will ensure there is enough for everybody. Look for helping and attending signup sheets and take note of what others are bringing so we have a balanced diet. We will need to be cleaned up and out of the building by 2:00 p.m. at the latest.
