Stillwater Sunrise
United States

We were recently contacted by Sally Anderson, from Community Thread (and a Stillwater Noon Rotarian) about a volunteer opportunity that Stillwater Noon is asking for help from Lake Elmo Rotary and our club.  Here are the details:

Community Thread and Stillwater Noon are looking for help securing volunteers for a joint Rotary Service Project on Saturday, September 29. 

At Community Thread, they are coordinating a special event to raise support for their Holiday Hope program. “Volunteer for a Cause” raises funds by placing volunteers at the St. Croix Vineyards in Stillwater during their fall wine tasting weekends. Volunteers are needed for the following positions:

• Tasting Bar –The Tasting Bar is a busy place where volunteers (age 21 and over) will do tasting pours of different featured wines for customers to sample. Volunteers will be introduced to the featured wines before beginning their shift. Volunteers must be able to stand four hours.

• Dish washer – the dishwashing station is adjacent to the Tasting Bar and can be staffed by anyone over age 16. Volunteers must be able to stand from four hours.

• Stock/Open – this position will carry cases of wine and should be relatively strong (lift at least 30 pounds). Volunteers must be able to stand from four hours.

Shifts go from 9:45 am to 1:30 pm and 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Our club is being requested to help fill the 9:45am to 1:30pm positions

It is presented that this is a fun event that helps raise around $10,000 to support families at the holidays.

We were provided a sign up spreadsheet that we converted to a shared google doc.  If you are interested in helping and supporting this volunteer activity, please consider signing up for a shift.  There are 7 shifts to fill and if you have a friend or other family member that would be available to help, they are more than welcome to help as well.
