CREW #1 (11:30am - 1pm) Come all ye faithful! Help us for an hour to prep platters of appetizers and do some table decorating on Sunday, December 4 after the 10 a.m. coffee hour (around 11:30 am). The prep work is for a Christmas reception following the traditional Anglican service of Nine Lessons and Carols which will run from 5 to 6 pm. No cooking involved, just arranging platters with pre-made appetizers, cheeses, crackers, etc. so they're ready to put on the food tables in the parish hall right after the service is done. Get into the Christmas spirit in St. John's kitchen! NOTE: you must be vaxxed and masked to prep, please. Time commitment: 1 hour or so. Kitchen crew leader: Marjorie Sun.
CREW #2 (6-6:15pm) Joy to the world! Help make St. John's first Christmas reception happen since the pandemic! Six folks are needed to zip out of church right after the Lessons and Carols service is finished. Hustle over to the kitchen to help put out platters of appetizers and beverages. No cooking! No clean up! (Someone else will do that!.) NOTE: you must be vaxxed and masked to help. Time commitment: 10 to 15 minutes. Singing Christmas carols optional and welcome while running the platters. Kitchen crew leader: Marjorie Sun.
COOKIE BAKERS Make the Lesson and Carols reception even sweeter by making a batch of your favorite Christmas cookies to share. We're looking for 8 bakers to make 2 dozen cookies each. Here's the drill:
1. Bring your cookies to church Sunday morning, December 4th and put them on the island in the kitchen.
2. Put your cookies on a disposable plate (so we don't lose a good plate of yours) or in a plastic bag. We'll assemble an assortment on platters at church.
3. Important! Tape a note on your cookies if they contain any NUTS or they are GLUTEN-FREE to protect folks with food allergies.
