Salem St. Paul's

Each August Salem St. Paul's Lutheran Church operates a food stand at the West End Fair in Gilbert. It needs the support of all church members and friends to make this effort a success.

The work schedule for this year's fair stand is posted on the community bulletin board. Volunteers must be 13 years and older to work in the stand. If you are able to sign up for more than one shift, that would be great. Volunteers will receive a free fair entry ticket and a free meal for the day they are scheduled to work.

There are three shifts daily from Aug. 25-31 with four to six volunteers per shift. The captain on each shift works the stove (heating the filling and barbecue, making gravy, etc.) and supervising as needed. The night shift captain would also close down the stand. A job description is available for captains. On each shift volunteers are needed to serve food and one person serves as cashier. Men are needed on all shifts to help with heavy lifting.

For questions regarding the work schedule call Pat Held at (610) 767-5641 or email heldpjheld@aol.com [1] or call Linda Serfass at (610) 377-1689.

Safe Haven

Safe Haven Pet Rescue will hold an adoption day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 21, at Tractor Supply, Route 209, Brodheadsville. There will be many young dogs available to meet and get to know. Safe Haven requires a pre-adoption application with references and a home visit before adoption.

Safe Haven Pet Rescue is a small group of dedicated volunteers from the West End of the Poconos who save highly adoptable dogs from high kill and overcrowded shelters and finds them loving homes. Volunteers are needed to help with adoption days, fundraising, transporting dogs to vets and groomers and fostering homeless dogs until they find their forever homes.
