What is expected of all members

Since we are a non profit organization (501c), we currently have 2 fundraisers to help with our operating expenses. We rely on our members to donate their time to work at these events. The first one is Bockbierfest held the last Saturday in April. The second is German Fest held the last weekend in July. You may volunteer at our Pancake Booth, or any other area at the fest. We are club #25 and ask you to record that on your volunteer sheet so SZM gets the credit for your hours worked. If you are a member of more than one club, you are allowed to split your hours worked at the fest. Just include that on your volunteer sheet.
