has always been wonderful, but to make it so we rely on club members to
volunteer. We need to fill 250 to 275
slots to prepare all of the great food we serve and to run the Century. We also need a few people to support the Workers Century the following
Here is a list of jobs that
take about 4 hours, but you can double your fun by signing up for more than one
slot. For example: you might sign up to
help at the Lunch Stop, but since you like baking, you will also make quick
breads; or you can help all day instead of half a day. The appropriate coordinator will contact you
a week or so before the century to verify times and answer questions.
