Winter Gathering: Recruiting for Clean-Up Crew (LNT)

Planning to attend the Winter Gathering? We hope you are!

PA Ridgerunner and I will again head up the clean-up crew for our Winter Gathering next February. As is often said, "many hands make light work", and we could use your help.

We are in need of about 6 additional volunteers to help the evening of the gathering with such things as emptying trash, picking up up the gathering room, washing dishes, and rinsing returnable bottles and cans. It's a nice way to help our hosts and the Foundation.

This year, the clean-up crew is being affectionately dubbed the "Leave No Trace" committee.

Interested in volunteering? Want more information? Please PM me!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon...

Fran

If you still have room, count us in for clean up.

Hi Everyone,

Just to sweeten the pot a little...A couple of rooms at the Ark are available for those who volunteer to be on the clean up crew, since we will be the "closers" of the Gathering. (Let me clarify by saying that these rooms are not free of charge, but we are trying to entice folks to participate.)

Interested? Please send me a PM if you would like additional information.

Best,

Fran

Fran, does the person have to share their room with Rik? Would that be a sweetener?


Actually, there is an incredible amount of work involved in returning the Ark Trail (including the kitchen) back to normal after the party is over.

Volunteers are definitely needed so that everyone (including the volunteers) can enjoy the gathering.

I suppose that would depend on whether he wears the French Maid costume or not!

Sounds like a challenge to me!
