The committee for memorial services needs a volunteer for the family support position from October through April. A snowbird member has already volunteered to do the job for the other half of the year (April through October). The job is to support family members in planning the reception after a memorial service and assisting them as the day proceeds.

We also need one full time volunteer to help the day of a service to provide receptions (modest food and drinks) after memorial services. You would be joining two seasoned volunteers and would be supported by the caring team. Most services are on Saturdays and Sundays.

New and long-term members are needed to join in this rewarding work. It directly supports our fellow members and our ministers. Give us a call.
