Hello Lizard Nation! Thanksgiving time is upon us, and what better way to give thanks than by volunteering at the Blanchet House!

WHAT: Help serve dinner to those in need.
WHERE: Blanchet House 340 NW Glisan, Portland (west side of the Steel Bridge).
WHEN: Saturday November 21, 445 PM-615 PM.
WHY: It's fun and fulfilling! If you haven't been before, jump in. There will be lots of experienced Lizards there to help you.

The following positions are available:

KITCHEN (4 people) - As a kitchen staff volunteer you will be dishing your assigned food onto plates.
SERVER (3 people) - Servers bring plates of food to the diners, and survey the room to make sure everyone has a plate.
BUSSER (3 people) - Bussers clear away the dirty dishes when a diner leaves, wipe the table, put down a clean coffee cup for the next diner, and make sure that each table has enough napkins, water, and coffee.

In so far:
* Kitchen: Mike, Kate, Kim, Julie
* Servers: Jenni, Christie, Mark
* Bussers: Steve, Jennie, Brian
* Fork Boy: Rex

Please let me know if you plan to attend, and which position you would like. Looking forward to seeing you there! Questions, comments, suggestions, contact:

Wow! What a great and quick response this month!

We have a few more volunteers here than what we need, even minus Megan. I'll let someone take my place too, so that means we have three extra people here: Mike, Brian, and Linda. You three are welcome to show up still to act as backup, or see where they might be able to put you. I put the limit on the volunteers because the current kitchen crew gets kind of grumbly when we show up with more than 10 volunteers.

If you don't want to run the risk of being turned away at this month's meal, I'll give you volunteer priority for the December 19th meal. Just let me know what you'd like to do please. Thank you!

Kristie:

I'll step aside since we really should let Linda and Brian in if they want in. but I'll take you up on the priority deal for next month.
