5th Annual Fundraiser for Sundays w/ Friends & Forgotten Workers

We will be serving a delicious spaghetti dinner with both meat sauce and vegetarian sauce, along with salad and garlic bread, and delicious desserts.

We ask for a donation of $15, but we urge you to give what you can. Nobody will be turned away because they can't pay. The income from this fundraiser buys the food and supplies for all of the healthy, nutritious hot meals we share with our friends at Cass Park, on the 2nd & 4th Sundays, all year 'round. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Two notes about parking: 

1) Only the fenced lot behind the League and the row along the east side of the building are GL property (free). The big lot east of the League is privately owned, and he is now charging to park. 

2) Parking zones have recently been created in Corktown for street parking. Observe parking fee collection units on each block.

Sundays in the Park, doing the best we can!

Hello, everyone. Maryanne Dunmire here. I am posting the event a little early, because we have a lot of figuring out to do. Most of you may knw by now that Jim Rehberg had heart surgery on Saturday(1st); he is recovering, but will not be able to participate on Sunday. The CP support team is scrambling to bring this together. 

I presume that the IBEW Local 58 - Detroit folks will bring the chicken as usual. 

Maryanne will make a big pan of baked beans. 

I don't know who brings the hotdogs & buns, but if someone knows, can you confirm that they’ll be there on the 9th.

Also, who brings the tossed salad? Who can confirm that?

I will make a big pan of coleslaw.

No grilled cheese this week only.

I will buy the plates & sporks & napkins (we’ll always use them eventually.)

Al Benchich & Barbara Ingalls are co-ordinating making batches of chili or jambalaya, so contact either of them if you'd like to help.

WHAT WE NEED MOST:

Beverages, bottles of iced tea, water, and juice boxes.

If you can help with any of these things, please post in comments. And as always, we can use the baked goods and treats that many folks bring. Please post what you're planning to bring.

Thank you all, so much, for your help and support through this difficult time. I'm sure that Jim will be grateful that we are continuing with his work.
