Please post a comment with which thing you are signing up for and which day(s). or you can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Last year we had caters donate the food and beverages. This year we don't have that luxury. So if you 'feel' like bringing any of the following please comment or email me at email@example.com
Veggies & Dip
Cheese & Crackers
Cookies, Squares, etc
Last year I believe we had somewhere around 3 or 4 hundred people over both days. That's a lot of food. So don't worry if someone else signs up for what you were going to bring. We are keeping it to these food options as it was hot last year and we don't need anyone getting sick from eating potato salad at our open house!!
And lastly we need some help advertising it. I have created a poster for the event. I will print some coloured copies and leave them on the desk in the MP room at SAINTS tomorrow when I am out. Is there anyone who would like to volunteer to canvas around Mission, Maple Ridge and Abbotsford to see if any stores will post them?
We will also be having a work party soon. Stay tuned for the date.
As an aside, I'll be out at SAINTS tomorrow so if Laura, Lana and I think KO need any of their dogs' nails trimmed, I'll be out there around 1230 (for real this time) and will bring my nail clippers.
