We have FUN but the help does mean ~
LOTS of WALKING ~ on your feet all day!
Your presence is needed and required all day. However, because this is a TEAM effort- we will organize "shifts" so everyone can have fun.
Flexible volunteers needed as sometimes you may have to change a position or shift time if someone drops out at the last minute.
PLEASE if you have something else to do that day ...
If you already have another commitment this day (family, work whatever...) let someone else volunteer that has the entire day to devote to helping. *If you leave the event before 5:30pm you will forfeit your thank you gratuities pay.
If you make this commitment to help, but your plans change and CAN NOT make the committed time to work or you change your mind about helping, I would greatly appreciate you CONTACT ME to let me know ASAP - I usually have a wait list of helpers

Hang around the food table- and keep table organized, add more plates if needed, carry cooked food from BBQ grill area of cooks to table, show the guest where the food is... ( People cant find things ... ketchup and other condiments) we also frequently have a separate "warmer " BBQ for the Baked Beans and Corn. Since there are 2 of you... please work together and take turns at this position. Set up trays with ICE for cold salads and HOT trays for hot food. Ice Tea and Lemonade containers too.
MUST ARRIVE BY 11:30AM ~ OVERVIEW MEETING
Enough help to make 2 separate shifts for the front sign-in table.
4 people will be on first shift, which is most busy
and 2 people to cover the and 2 will work the second shift front desk
I will also be at the front to help with all for the 1st shift.
Sign in can get rather hectic.
1. one person and myself will do the sign in check list, have the person sign in and Give a NAME TAG and take the money.
Once payment is made- we will make the name tag which is their "receipt" so we know they paid
*We all need to EXPLAIN to all paid SINGLES
ATTENDING they must wear the tags- this is PROOF they have paid.
2 more volunteers will be helping at the front - receive the person who has just signed in- show the guest the lists of sign in sheets for: VOLLEYBALL, SCAVENGER HUNT, Trivia GAME ... ALL of these games are included (free)
Encourage them to sign up for something to meet and mingle with guests-
make new friends
ALSO Sign in sheet for: Psychic Readings FEES are posted.
COST amount will be listed on sign in sheet, and you can show them the prepared sheet with a "bio" for the Psychic.
SIGN IN Volunteers also helps explain the "date match cards" and how they work
**NEED some enthusiasm with this job.. as we need you to also encourage the singles arriving to sign-up on these sheets.
After all that's how you get to meet people!
1 registration volunteer will be assigned to be SELLER of Raffles
A GREETER is also needed - help with GAMES Registration "GREETER" is like a hostess - after the guest has signed in for all... the GREETER escorts the guest to a table area. Shows them a place to sit. We will have "suggested seating" for age groups. If the guest is has come alone- GREETER will introduce her to a few at the tables that has already arrived. Introducing is easy since everyone has a name tag! ...
Simply say "Excuse me so and so.... I would like to introduce you to "NAME of guest" he/she has just arrived!
I have found 99% of the time everyone is very eager to welcome them as they understand -especially for women- how hard it is to walk in alone.
Greeter will also assist during the BBQ to gather up the groups that have signed up for GAMES and get them rolling!
