Brother Knights,We have contracted with Rick’s Catering again this year to prepare our annual Lent Fish Fry meals to be served after the Stations of the Cross starting around 6:40 PM. The Fish Fry Lent meals are one of our main fund-raisers. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated and needed to help prepare, serve and clean up after these meals. This is a great way for our Council members to become more acquainted with each other as well as for our new members to get involved with our Council activities.
Our first Fish Fry Lent meal will be held This Friday, March 11th at the PAC. We have 190 meals ordered with 50 reserve meals if needed. Each Lent meal Friday we will need at least 5 Knights to arrive at 5 PM at the PAC. We will need to set up 32 tables for seating 256. Ricky’s Catering will provide the tea for this meal and we will make a pot of coffee. Also needed to be set up will be two serving lines, two ticket sales tables, 2 pizza serving tables, extra trash containers, etc. We will also need to sell tickets, serve the tea, coffee and pizza.
The meal ticket prices will be $9.50 for adults and $7.00 for children 12 and under. The charge for pizza will be $3.50 per person.
Starting at 6:10pm at each Lent meal we will need a total of 11 volunteers to work. We will need 3 people at each ticket table, two taking money and one handing out plates. We will need 3 people serving drinks from the kitchen. We will need 2 people to serve pizza. We will also have to dump trash and clean up after each meal.
The caterer will watch how the “To Go” plates on a weekly basis. If the customers start taking all meat plates to go, we will need to prepare them ourselves. If this becomes the case, we will need 14 volunteers for each Lent meal.
As you can see, many things need to happen before these meals are served to make this a successful fund-raising event. Please make every effort to assist with these meals. The more help there is, the easier it is on everyone else. I will send out a weekly lent meal reminder as well.
Hope to see you this Friday evening.
Also remember that if you cannot assist with serving these Lent meals you CAN support your Council by purchasing meals for you and your family!
If you need to contact me, please do so.
