 Food events/ Set Up/ Clean Up

We task friends with setting up tables and chairs, wiping tablecloths, setting out napkins and tableware, assisting chef, serving at a buffet line, bussing plates, folding it all away again. Sometimes your reward is a free meal, sometimes a pat on back, but you are always appreciated.  Please contact Caroline to help.
