Deadline for all ads is Monday, August 21st. THANK YOU!

FESTIVAL VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
PHILOPTOCHOS SOCIETY
We are making plans to prepare for the pastry booth at the upcoming festival. As you know, each year we have a goal to bake a variety of delicious Greek pastries, and make sure we have an adequate supply for the three day event. We really need your help and support. We have scheduled times when we are planning to bake at the Church and hope that you may consider coming down to volunteer to bake with us.

FESTIVAL BAKING SCHEDULE
KOULOUVAKIA - Tuesday & Wednesday, August 8th & 9th - 9AM
KOURAMBIEDES - Wednesday & Thursday, August 16th & 17th - 9AM
BAKLAVA - Thursday, August 24th - 9AM
GALAKTOBOURIKO - Thursday, August 31st - 9AM
PACKAGING PASTRY - Friday, September 1st - 9AM

Another way you can help us achieve this goal would be to bake at home and bring your donation to the festival. Each year people are looking to buy kataiffe, karithopita and diple, pastries we do not bake at Church. Additionally, any monetary contributions would help us to purchase much needed supplies as butter, flour, sugar, eggs, etc. In advance we thank you for your continued support.

ST. GEORGE LADIES SOCIETY
We are now busy planning our table for the St. George Festival. Our festival table will again include plants, crafts and raffles and we hope we can count on your support. We would appreciate any monetary donations that will help defray the cost of purchasing items for the table. Again, we thank you for your continued support.
ST. GEORGE P.T.A.
We are preparing our schedule for Childrens Rides and Games for this year's festival. This year we are looking for people to work at our booth and rides during the day. Rides and games will be responsibility of the vendors during evening hours.

Please contact Theodora Roumeliotis theodora420@yahoo.com, Paula Papalambros paulapapalambros@gmail.com and Angela Nikolouzos angelazn74@gmail.com with the date and times you will volunteer during the festival. We thank you for your support!

Volunteering your time, your talent, your energy and your resources before during and after the festival is essential to the success of this fun filled weekend. Please call the Church office and volunteer today!
