Volunteer Appreciation Dinner
August 28 @ 4:30 pm
As a small token of appreciation from the Cleveland Hiking Club membership to our many volunteers, we will be conducting our annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Saturday, August 28, at Camp Onwego. Social hour will begin at 3:30 pm, with dinner following at 4:30 pm. To qualify for a seat at this exclusive table, you should have led at least four hikes or volunteered at least ten hours of your time over the past 12 months to The Cleveland Hiking Club. Please contact Rita Bennett by email at [email protected] to reserve your spot for this fun evening of great friends and great food! Be sure to make your reservations early, as the event “sells out” every year! This year we will have to limit seating due to COVID restrictions. Indoor and outdoor seating will be utilized.
For members who have been unable to lead hikes or otherwise volunteer, this is a perfect opportunity to say thank you to those who keep this club in tip-top shape and offer us so many wonderful opportunities for hikes and events. You may provide a gift for our door prize drawings. In previous years, we have had a wide variety of items, from handmade hats and scarves, to gift cards, to hiking socks, to wine, and the list goes on. Once you have purchased an item, please give it to any of the following CHC members: Mary Bradshaw, Debbie Wood, Lucy Erba, Mark Stypczynski, Ron Hueter, Peggy Koesel, Dan Lintern, Giovanna DiLauro, Bob Kimmelfield, Bob DiVincenzo, or Barb Appel. If it doesn’t work out to get a donation to any of these people, just contact either of us and we’ll figure out a way to obtain it.
Another fine way to say thank you to our volunteers is to help with preparation, serving, and cleanup at the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. If anyone was left off the list above, or if you would like to add your name to the list, please contact either of us to volunteer, and we will be in touch as the time gets closer.
Thanks in advance for your help! This fun event is not possible without the collaborative efforts of everyone!
