Our department’s Spring Family BBQ is happening TOMORROW, Saturday, June 1st, and we’re putting a call out for all available to help set up!
We’ll be meeting at 9am tomorrow morning to unload equipment and set up stations. This work should only take an hour or two at the most as Stephanie won’t bring the food until just before the event so it doesn’t spoil. The most time consuming work will just be deciding where to place each activity centre.
Those who have volunteered to help with the food (and anyone else who would like to help!) should come to the event around 2:30.
So far our awesome food prep volunteers are:
Thanks to the Pipes and Drums Association, who are generously manning the grills! (#heroes)
We are also still in need of large coolers. If you can lend yours, please bring them to the event at either 9am or 2:30 pm.
If you can help meet any of these needs, or if you have any questions, please contact Event Coordinator Stephanie directly at StephNixon2177@gmail.com, or use the contact form at the bottom of the page to be connected to Katie, the groups’ Communication Lead.
This event is BYOB. As per liquor license standards, we need to have the alcohol at the event “posted.” Therefore, if possible, please bring the receipts from your alcohol purchase to the event with you to the BBQ. We know it’s not ideal, and don’t anticipate needing to see the receipts or experiencing any problems, it’s a just-in-case safety measure.
This will be a family-friendly event with fun for all ages including bagpipes, a 61 foot obstacle course, lawn games, great music, and… AXE THROWING!
The barbecue will begin at 3pm with no formal end time – folks are invited to secure babysitters if they’d like to return after their little ones’ bedtimes. In the evening we’ll cozy up around campfires, so please bring enough lawn chairs to make your family comfortable. We have contained, closed-topped fire pits, so fingers crossed there are no changes in regard to fire bans.
When: Saturday, June 1st, 3pm – late
Where: Druid’s Clubhouse, 23360 Township Road 524A, Sherwood Park
What to Bring: BYOB and lawn chairs
