How about stepping outside your circle of comfort for a little while?  This September, the Post is “having” a food booth at this year’s Indy Car Grand Prix at Watkins glen.  From Thursday, September 1st thru Sunday, September 4, our Post will be manning a food booth at the world famous race course just south of us, in Watkins Glen.  Volunteers are needed to man the shifts.  It will be busy but it will be exciting and fun!!  There is an informational meeting at the Post on Tuesday, August 9th at 7:00 pm for anyone interested.  Even if you just want to find out what the jobs will be, show up.

Some members from the Post are going to Watkins Glen on August 4th to return on the 8th to get a little “taste” of what it takes to run a food booth during a NASCAR race. They will share their experiences at the meeting on the 8th.  Come and hear what they have to share.

Meanwhile, the Post has two booths at the Wayne County Fair again this year.  the Fair runs from August 15th through the 20th.  Sign up to help in commercial building #1.
