To answer some of the questions asked:

The jobs that we need to fill are serving fish and beer.

For fish, you would get a plate with a piece of cooked fish on it, add a bun, potato and coleslaw and hand it out to the customer. These are 2 1/2 to 3 hour shifts at a time. There is no age minimum or limit to this.

For beer, we need people to pour the beer, cider or wine and serve it over a makeshift bar to the customers. These shifts are also 2 1/2 to 3 hours at a time. People must be 19 years of age to work in this area.

In neither of these jobs will you be handling money.

If we had 75 people each willing to do a 3 hour shift, we would have everything covered. We are not asking for an entire weekend of your time. But if you've got it, we'll take it! LOL!

The beer service schedule begins at 4pm on Friday and goes until 11pm. Saturday and Sunday it starts at 11am and goes until 11pm. Monday it starts at 11am and ends at 4pm.

The fish service schedule begins at 4pm on Friday and goes until 9pm. Saturday and Sunday it starts at 11am and goes until 9pm. Monday it starts at 11am and ends at 4pm.

If you are serious about helping out, please feel free to e-mail me with your available times at chrisgibson@shaw.ca or call me on my cell phone (250) 731-6481 or home phone (250) 724-5681.

Also, the Salmon Festival and Kiwanis Club supports many other community groups with this weekend. For several years now the Cadets have manned the kitchen and earned funds for their group. The "Go Grannies" man the Kiwanis bus and earn funds for their organization. Kiwanis Hilton Centre does the potatoes that get served with the fish dinner to earn funds for their centre. We have supported ball teams and hockey teams when they have done security for the beer gardens. The list goes on and on. This year we lost Daughters of the Eastern Star as they did not have enough manpower to continue with their booth.

All summer we have been trying to work with a group to man the beer gardens so that they could earn funds for their organization but they are challenged with manpower.

So, for this weekend, or for the coming years if you are a group that need ways to earn money or individuals who just want to help for a few hours, contact me.

Thank you again!!
