The annual Maine State Grange Session is fast approaching! I’m putting together some plans for the kitchen and could use your help.

Volunteers are needed.

Several people have already volunteered to take on some of the major kitchen responsibilities, but I am still looking for people who are willing to volunteer some time to help in the kitchen (schedule somewhat flexible). Anywhere from three to seven people (depending on the time of day) will be needed in the kitchen. “Jobs” include making sandwiches in the morning, and serving lunches, beverages and/or snacks. Help is needed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The kitchen will not be able to function efficiently without sufficient help. Please let me know soon what you would like to do and which day(s) and time(s) you are available to help.

Donations are welcome.

Please let me know what you plan to donate what by Sept. 30 so I can plan to purchase the rest. Items needed include:

  • Bottled water
  • Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Diet Sprite, orange, root beer, ginger ale
  • American Chop Suey (3 batches needed)
  • Individual bags of potato chips
  • Desserts–cookies & bars
  • paper goods such as hot cups, paper towels, dinner plates (sturdy), napkins, plastic forks

We plan to sell coffee and muffins each morning; sandwiches (ham & cheese, chicken salad, tuna salad, PB&J), cookies/bars, chips, and a hot meal (chop suey Thursday, mac & cheese Friday, with biscuit) at noon; and beverages (coffee, tea, hot cocoa, water, soda). Beverages and snack items will be available at all breaks.

Please contact me by email  (lmcb293atgmaildotcom)   or at 207-563-5347 to let me know what items you/your Grange can donate and if you are available to help out in the kitchen. We’ll have fun and eat well!
