Mount Olivet Lutheran Church
Fellowship Hall, directly below Main Sanctuary (there will be directional signs)
5025 Knox Ave South, Minneapolis, MN
August 25, 2012 at 9:00 am - 12:30 pm (can work 1 hour or 2 hour shifts, or for full duration)
We need your help!!! Let us know what you are willing to help with.
There will be multiple people assisting so this workload will be shared.
We need help with serving. We will be having a buffet style serving table, where we will have two lines formed to have guests serve themselves. We will be having the reception catered, and the caterer will provide the food and drinks. Drinks will all be non-alcoholic, and there will be a punch table set up.
This role may involve setting up the punch table and buffet tables by unwrapping linens and laying them out on the table, placing linens on 70" table rounds along with a table scarf, placing clear vases with flowers in them as centerpieces. We may need help setting tables, and will need help putting table numbers on the table.
There will likely be 15 tables, no more than 90 guests (a small to medium sized wedding). There will be a go-to person if you have any questions at the event, and written instructions for you when you arrive. Also, this information can be mailed to you prior to the event if you wish; we would just need your contact info to do this.
The food served will be quiches already scored. We will need help with putting quiches in the ovens for warming (the temperature will not be very hot) and taking them out to bring them to the buffet tables. We will need a little help with directing traffic so that people know where the lines start. You may or may not be involved putting up 10 small decorations made of paper to hang from the ceiling. There will be a step ladder available if this is needed. We will need help with setting up the photobooth which will involve putting semi permanent 3m hooks on the wall (very easy, I've done it before and it's a snap) and hooking a lightweight fabric to hang down as a backdrop, also placing lightweight photobooth props in a bin, and arranging two chairs in front of the backdrop. This role will require some light lifting, maybe 5 - 10 lbs at most, and will require standing on your feet for an hour at a time; 10 min breaks will be allowed after every full hour of service.
