First of all, thanks to all those who helped at the roast beef dinner. We served 234 paying customers and close to 30 helpers. From providing salads, helping rearrange the hall, promoting the event, and assisting in preparing and serving as well as cleaning up after, many hands make light work.
Thanks a lot.
The month of May holds many opportunities.
The first weekend in May will be quilting beginning at 9 on Saturday, April 30th and continuing on Sunday. Please bring something for snacks at noon and a project to work on.
May 10th will be the regular meeting beginning at 7:00 pm at the hall with a Memorial Service. Cake, jello, and sandwiches will be the order of refreshments with the serving committee consisting of Bob Scherer, Kyle, Brian, Chris, and Jessie Schmuggerow.
May 21st and 22nd, Flora Grange will be serving the Model T’s Little Hershey car show and swap. We will be using the sandwich stand at the fairgrounds as well as the pop stand. We were encouraged to provide a breakfast item as well as a lunch type menu, so that means early preparation and serving. The event goes from 6am (vendors and workers) to 3:30 pm. I am desperately looking for workers during these times and would like to have 2 or 3 shifts beginning at 5:30am to 4:00 pm. If you have already told me that you could help, please refresh my memory.
Right now I have, Kyle, Barb Noll, Wayne and Nancy, Val and Jim for an
earlier shift. I believe Lindakay has members to serve as cashiers. This should be a good fundraiser and one of the easier ones to do. PLEASE CALL 815-222-6173 with times and choices of positions. I will need someone for the grill, cashiers, waiters, and drink stand.
*Note – We will only be serving the Kirkland Lions Club in June this year. The date in June will be the 23th. It does not take too much help, but I do need a few people. Serving time will be 7:00 so if you could assist for about 21/2 hours I would appreciate it.
June 7, 8, 9, & 10 @ 9-11:00 am SAFETY TOWN DAY CAMP!!! Flyers are being made this next week and will be distributed real soon. It seems now both the parents and the children look forward to the 4 days. I do need your help please give me a call at your earliest convince. 815-222-6173 if I don’t pick up leave me a message THANK-YOU.
Take a look outside and enjoy the green grass and blossoming trees. However the cold temperatures leave a question in the mind is Spring really and truly here? Lawn mowers are out and tractors are rolling. Field work is making head way as days or long even though it is dark, we still call them days! Enjoy the sun and warmth as we have waited a LONG time for this.
Gotta run. As ever, Laurel
