This year at State Session (October 19-21, 2017) the kitchen will be run by the Maine State Grange. State Pomona Laurie McBurnie will be coordinating this undertaking, but she needs assistance from other Grangers.
On Thursday and Friday, the kitchen will be open for business as usual: early morning (coffee, beverages, a limited choice of breakfast items); lunch time (sandwiches, hot meal, beverages, desserts); breaks (beverages, snacks, etc.). On Saturday the kitchen will be officially open only in the early morning.
People to coordinate the various tasks (such as serving lunch, making sandwiches) have been lined up, but they can’t do it alone. Assistance is needed at the following times: early morning (coffee, set-up, etc., two people), sandwich-making (early morning, three to four people), serving lunch (five to six people), and breaks (one to three people). If you are able to help only one day, that is fine.
Grangers have always been supportive of the kitchen with their food and beverage donations. Cookies and bars for dessert as well as bottled water and soda would be much appreciated. Other items needed have not yet been sorted out, but if you would like to donate something else, please say so.
Please contact Laurie McBurnie and let her know if you are available to help in the kitchen (what you want to do and when you are available) or if you would like to donate items for the kitchen. Knowing ahead of time will help prevent duplication. Please email Laurie, LMCB293gmailcom (LMCB293gmailcom) , or call her at 563-5347 (leave a message).
