Third Haven Hospitality Report Annual for 2014/2015
Co-Clerks Dona Sorce, Heidi Wetzel
Many thanks go out to everyone who so enthusiastically supports the hospitality of Third Haven Meeting. Especially in 2015, we have had a lot of help from volunteers who have made sure that coffee and refreshments were ready for a get-together in the Hospitality Room after Meeting for Worship.
We have enjoyed many delicious and nutritious contributions to hospitality. A special thank-you for all who bring in home-baked goods, and healthy snacks. Coffee is now purchased at Rise-Up-Coffee, organic and fair trade, rich and tasty. Set-up and Clean-up instructions are posted in the kitchen. Our new dishwasher is working out well.
The cabinets, shelves and drawers all have labels, thanks to MK.
Our committee has lost some of its members because of other commitments, and we are always seeking new members; however, we have appreciated the increased support in 2015. We encourage friends and attenders to sign up on the refrigerator if they wish to assist at any time.
Our sign-up sheets on the refrigerator have been broken down into 3 parts, to make helping out easier. One can sign up for setting up before meeting for worship, or cleaning up after hospitality, or bring some refreshments, or some, or all three. Any help is welcome.
On December 21st we celebrated Christmas Holidays with soup and a party in the Hospitality Room. We helped facilitate a members' and attenders' luncheon, we assisted First-Day School with a school-end picnic and moving-up day celebration .
We welcome plans under way to streamline and upgrade the kitchen and serving areas. We have been able to stay within our budget, and ended up with a small surplus. There is always an opportunity to enjoy one another by participating in Hospitality and all are welcome.
