MMA Meeting / Baked Potato Sale Help Needed

The next Mohawk Music Association meeting is Tuesday, October 7, at 6:30 pm in the hallway between the cafeteria and the entrance door from the employee parking lot.

You may come at 5:30 pm if you want to help box potatoes to get them ready for distribution to our volunteer bakers. Bakers may come anytime between 5:30 and 8 pm to pick up their boxes and baking/delivery instructions.

On the agenda:  we'll get updates from the Music Directors about their upcoming events, plan for the Baked Potato Sale at the Ashfield Fall Festival, plan for the Trailer Park concert on Nov. 7, and more!

Please join us.

A message from MMA President Sherry Taylor:

Good evening to you all. My name is Sherry Taylor, president of the Mohawk Music Association and coordinator of the MMA's Baked Potato Booth at the Ashfield Fall Festival that is coming up on October 11th and 12th.

 First off, I would like to thank all of you who have already volunteered to either bake potatoes or work at our booth this year.

Secondly, I would like to extend an invitation to the rest of you to help us with this, our biggest fundraiser of the year.

 So, we need folks to bake the potatoes we sell. The MMA provides the potatoes, foil and directions all in a box for you to bake. You would bring them to us hot, still wrapped in the foil, on Saturday and/or Sunday at a specific time that you and I will arrange. Currently, we have some slots available on both days at 1 pm, 2 pm and 3pm as well at Sunday at noon. Potatoes can be picked up at Mohawk on Tuesday, October 7th between 6:30 - 8 at the cafeteria door on the right side of the building. We will be holding our regular MMA meeting in the area right inside the door, so feel free to join us at our meeting to see what we do.

We also need help in the booth selling the potatoes. People give us their order and we add the toppings they want. It is a lot of fun and the time just flies by because it is a very busy booth. Last year we sold out early both days selling 500 potatoes each day and we are aiming for more this year. You can see how the time would fly by when you are selling that many potatoes! We have some slots available on Saturday 9:45 - 1 and 2 -5 and on Sunday we have slots available 9:45 - 1, 11 - 2 and 2 - 5. If you could find it in your schedule to help with this booth, it would be most appreciated.

So, please respond to this email and let me know what day and time would be good for you to bake potatoes and/or help in the booth. Many hands make light work and all of our hands together support the music program at Mohawk!

 Thank you,

 Sherry Taylor
