Volunteers needed for FPS July 4 Grill Fundraiser

We will be setting up again on the FPS front terrace to sell picnic food to the Independence Day Parade spectators.   Last year there were 36 volunteers, 144 customers and we made $876.  This is a pretty good fundraiser as well as a community service.  We welcome everyone to help plan, shop, grill, cut watermelons, set up tables and canopies, sell, serve and  clean up. Ask anyone who was there last year and they will tell you how much fun we all had.  If you’re away, you can still help by baking for the bake table ahead of time.  Does anyone have a Costco membership?

Bring your ideas to a planning meeting Monday June 11 7pm-8:30pm in the Commons. We need some new ideas to increase our profits.  Last year we added popcorn to the menu.  This year we’re adding beef burgers with bacon and will have a better selection of cold drinks.  What other ideas do have?

If you can’t help, we hope that you will bring your family and neighbors to the FPS Lawn.  Tell everyone that this is the best place to see the parade.

Please contact Leslie Lowe and Tom Yelton.
