Important Fish Fry Info!
Our lenten fish fry is a tradition at SMM and the athletics ministry is happy to carry out the event. A great deal of planning and man hours go into making each week a success. The proceeds from each fish fry go to the athletics ministry to help offset the costs of running our program, buying equipment, CSAA fees etc. Every dollar that is raised goes back into the athletics budget and is used to improve the programs we offer your children. Having said that, the athletics ministry board members can't do it alone! While we do have grade levels sign up to fufill most jobs in an hour and a half increments, we still need more help week to week. These past 2 weeks, we have had very little help with the clean up. A very small group of people plus a few volunteers can't possibly do the clean up process alone.....we need more help!! If you happen to stay in the gym until the food lines end, please consider staying for a few extra minutes to break down tables and chairs. If you are in the PAC for the 3 on 3, please look around and throw away the cans, wrappers, papers etc. that the kids leave behind. This past Friday, the PAC was a mess and again, it was left to just a small amount of people to clean up.
We want to continue the Fish Fry tradition at SMM as it is a wonderful opportunity for great food and fellowship! But we must have more people "step up to clean up" when the event is over. Please consider sticking around this week and for the final fish fry on March 9th. If you are signed up for a shift, you must follow through or find someone to take your place if you can't attend. The sign up genius is included for this week's fish fry, Kindergarten and 7th grade families are asked to sign up for a shift and provide desserts for the cake booth. Please note, the sign up genius does indicate a free dress pass for those who fufill the dishwasher and clean up duties!
Thank you for your participation, let's work together to ensure our fish fry tradition can stay around for years to come!
