Report from the Membership Committee

During this month’s Membership Committee meeting, we decided we needed to make a master supply list for all the supplies we regularly use during coffee hour. Then we will have that up in the kitchen where we can keep track of it. If any members see a need for any supplies, like sugar, cream, etc., please let us know as soon as possible. Jean Grant is in charge of ordering the coffee, so please contact her if you see we are running low.

We greatly appreciate all those that help out and bring treats for coffee hour, but we would like to remind everyone to please take home any leftover foods that you may bring. The refrigerator gets pretty packed quickly, and lots of stuff ends up going bad and being thrown away.

We will be making a sign-up sheet for “Potluck help crews,” where members can sign up to help set up and/or clean up afterwards. The job has mainly fallen on a certain few, and as it’s a pretty big job, we could really use all the help we can get on those days. The sign-up sheet will be on the bulletin board in the dining hall. We remind members that they are responsible for the dishes they bring to the potluck, and any heating or refrigeration it may need. We acknowledge that we are truly blessed as our potlucks have all been very wonderful, with so many yummy dishes to share! Many thanks to all of you!

We discussed briefly, a need to help get some help together for the Building and Grounds Committee. Steve Barrata will be making a list of the various jobs that the Building and Grounds Committee are responsible for, so we have a better idea about what is needed. We know we need to get some cleaning up done outside before the cold and snow come, and hope to get that organized soon.

We are happy to say that we will most likely have a New Members Ceremony in November, and are excited to welcome at least two new members at this time, Mike and Jackie Goodwin! As always, we could still use more people to sign up for the coffee hour teams. As they say, many hands make light work! So if you would like to be on one of the teams, please contact me.

Our next Membership Committee Meeting will be on Thursday, Nov. 15th at 12:00 p.m. All are welcome!
