Dear Fruit Club Members,
One of our favorite Vashon Island Fruit Club events is almost here! Saturday, June 26, beginning at 1:00pm, Bob & Carol Norton will host their Orchard Tour & Strawberry Shortcake Tasting party. Members only please. Join us for lemonade & scrumtuliscious berries.
We are also taking this opportunity to send out a call for extra Strawberry Fest volunteers, Friday July 16 through Sunday, July 18th. In order for the Club to avoid paying a $160.00 fee for our Strawberry Fest booth, we need to provide the Chamber of Commerce with 10 hours of volunteer time. This can be 5 people, each for 2 hours. Place & times needed: the Micro Brew Beer Garden. Possible jobs to include set-up, ID checking, beer pouring, and bussing tables.
VIFC needs volunteers in these time slots:
FRIDAY: 4 volunteers from 3:00 pm to 7:30, 5 volunteers from 7:30 until 11:00.
SATURDAY: 2 volunteers from 10:30 to 2:00, 4 volunteers from 2:00 to 5:30, 5 volunteers from 5:30 until 11:00.
SUNDAY: 2 volunteers from 10:30 to 4:00, 4 or 5 from 4:00 to cleanup time around 7:00
Please let our Special Events Chair Linda Rhodes know when you would be available by calling her at 463- 9826, or call Elizabeth Vogt at 920-7603.
We hope to see everyone at the Nortons on the 26th, and we thank you in advance for your valuable volunteer time. After all, the club is as good as what we all put into it, the more we contribute, the more each of us gets back.
Happy Fruiting season to all of you!
