More opportunities to help sell Hoedown Raffle tickets + Welcome Table Update

Many, many thanks to those you who have volunteered to help sell Hoedown Raffle and event tickets at the Superstore and Farmer's Market. We have August 25th and September 1st covered for the Farmer's Market but we have NEW dates!!! We have to sell a minimum of raffle and event tickets and we are not close to meeting this (yet) but with everyone's help, we should be able to meet our goals (1500 raffle tickets and 100 Event Tickets). We have sold about 600 raffle tickets and less than 15 Event Tickets so help is needed!!!

On a serious note, I wanted to share with you the news that David McFarlane (chef on Team B) is seriously ill and will not be back in the foreseeable future. Many of you have reached out to him, and we will have a card for volunteers to sign this week. With Stuart Ross' leaving for permanent work, and now David being ill, we are down 2 chefs.  If you know of anyone who might be interested in cooking for Welcome Table on a monthly basis, please pass on this information and I will ensure we will follow up!
