The Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease 2011 Volunteer Information

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease 2011
Sunday / October 23rd
Van Saun Park, Paramus

The organizers of this year’s Alzheimer’s Walk are anticipating a larger turn out than ever before, so once again they need our help!

In the past seven years members from this Council and others have become a vital part of the “Northern Walk”; your efforts continue to help the Alzheimer’s Association and our Order to become more prominent in the local community. Last year we had more than 40 Knights turn out to help!

On Sunday, October 23rd, our council, along with a few other councils from Bergen County, will once again be providing the following assistance: setting up in the morning, grilling 1000 hamburgers and 1000 hot dogs and cleaning up. We finish up about 2:00 in the afternoon.

As in the past I’m asking you to come …….
Set-up -- 6:30 and 7:00 in the morning (rakes, leaf blowers and muscles!)
Cook – 9:00 light the grills (charcoal this year!) and cook the burgers and dogs.
Clean-up -- 12:30 - 2:00 knock down tables, pick-up litter and then back to the hall to clean the pans, trays and utensils
Any time you can give is truly appreciated.

So I ask all of you to come and please get involved. At our October 6th, Business Meeting we will organize our plans for this day. If you are able to help on October 23rd please contact me at 201-664-6870 or GEMFW@msn.com.
