Special News Bulletin

We're down to the wire with TPC beginning next week and we're still severely understaffed. 
At this point we still need volunteers for every day except Wednesday, and particularly the afternoon/closing shifts. 

Those times are
11-6 and 12-close


This event means about $9k to SBMC contributing to the budget that funds many of our annual programs.  All of our volunteer events bring revenue to the club for the hours worked which impact most of our social/ticketed events as well as involvement in the community.  Not only do they allow us to do things like take underprivileged children shopping for the holidays, they're also a means of reducing the cost of many events like the Holiday Gala ($6,500), the Jag's Social ($2,500).  Additionally they're a means of funding some of our community recognition efforts like Police officer of the year and Firefighter of the year which each carry $1,000 in awards to the recipients for putting themselves at risk in the line of duty. 


All that being said, we need all hands on deck.  If you haven't yet signed up, please do so.  If you can't make it, try and find someone to send in your stead.  I mentioned members at the meeting who had signed up for multiple shifts like Past President Win Thomas whose working 2 different days; and Past President AJ Pionessa who has committed to 3 shifts!  If you'd like to volunteer, please email, or sign up via the website (members only)  This is one of the most fun volunteer events of the year and is sure to be better than ever. 


(Did I mention there is a party involved?)  As usual 4th VP Julie Clements has graciously offered to host our annual TPC party THIS SATURDAY, but you must be a volunteer to attend!  If you're a new member, or haven't ever worked TPC before, email or call with any questions you may have.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Parking next door at San Juan Del Rio Catholic Church-Balloons will be on the side gate to walk through to Julie's home


Finally, our added incentive....the drawing.  If you volunteer for any day you'll be eligible to win $100.  However if Saturday your name goes in the drawing twice, and if you're working Sunday, or the Thurs-Sat Closing shifts you'll have your name in 3 TIMES!!!!
