The event itself is from 9:00am to 3:00pm, however, volunteers would be required to start at 7:30am and would be able to leave at approximately 4:00pm (or earlier…we’ll have to see how quickly we get cleaned up!)

We will require 12 volunteers for this event. Tasks include:

  • Helping set up tables etc (tables and chairs will already be set up, but we need table clothes put on etc)
  • Staffing Registration Table
  • Food Receivers (participants will be bringing lunch – it needs to be put away appropriately in long bar area – no kitchen use this year)
  • Setting up coffee, tea, water area.
  • Staffing coffee/tea/water area to ensure it’s always fresh, available…etc.
  • Long Bar Supervisor – to oversee food prep activities.
  • Lunch Supervisor – to oversee lunch service activities.
  • Long Bar staff – to help prepare lunch (warming things up, putting things on plates, ensuring everything has a serving spoon, signage, etc)
  • Serving staff – to put everything on the buffet line in a lovely looking manner, along with plates, napkins & cutlery.
  • Clean up.
