Volunteers needed for Rotary community dinner
September 29, 2009
SILVERTHORNE – The Rotary’s Oct. 6 community dinner in Silverthorne still needs a few volunteers, said dinner spokeswoman Deb Hage. Interested people will be helping other volunteers from Land Title. The dinner happens every Tuesday at the Elks Lodge.
Fresh vegetables from the Alpine Garden and Silvana’s Community Gardens has also been served at Tuesday dinners, Hage added.
“Next year there are plans for a greenhouse to be built with a grant from Summit Prevention Alliance next to the Senior Center in Frisco,” Hage said in an e-mail. “It is hoped it will supply fresh veggies and salad greens to the seniors and the community dinner all next winter. Watch for it.”
On Oct. 13, from 1-3 p.m., there will be a food-handling training program provided by Food Bank of the Rockies.
“Every agency that gets food from the Food Bank must have people who take the class,” Hage said. “The more volunteers that take the class the better.”
Hage additionally said that two of the dinner’s shelterless attendees have gotten jobs and are living indoors.
