On March 7, despite the thundersnow, 43 guests showed up for a tasty Pasta Dinner: carbonara with artichoke hearts; salad; bread; and tiramisu.
The secret ingredient was iVolunteer, an easy-to-use, splendidly versatile online sign-up sheet by which 14 of us came together to stage the feast: a captain/chef, kitchen assistants, cashiers, servers and clean-up crew, all in appropriate time slots. The link was posted in Looking Ahead and other parish communications.
“iVolunteer keeps us organized,” Lucy says.
Of course, the presence alone of an online form doesn’t make volunteers appear out of nowhere. So please sign up to help out at our upcoming events: the May 2 Pasta Dinner and the May 5 Godly Play Training.
