Fr. Steven is planning a neighborhood Block Party around the end of September as a way of meeting and greeting the neighbors of the Parish and helping build good community relations. He’s thinking about a cook-out in the lower school yard with a bouncy-house, some music from talented parishioners, etc. He has asked the Knights for some help in two categories: (a) helping organize the event, and (b) some manpower at the event, probably setting up tables and chairs, grilling or serving food, staffing a booth, etc.
Organizer. We need one guy to help organize. Fr. Steven has two other parishioners from the Spanish and Brazilian communities he is asking, but would like a Knight to round out the organization committee. You would need to meet 3-4 times with the others; relay information back to the Council; schedule Knights to help out in various areas; etc. It’s only a 60-day commitment. You will have some help from your faithful Grand Knight.
Worker bees. We should try to provide 5-6 guys on the day of the event to help set up, grill, serve, etc. It will only be a 3-4 hour commitment. There will probably be a free hamburger in it for you, too.
If you can help organize this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and volunteer.
The exact date has not been set yet, probably September 23rd or 28th. When the date has been set, I will post a sign-up sheet on the kofcmarlboro.org website.
This is an event which will generate good visibility for us and possibly a positive recruitment opportunity.
