Serve The City Geneva

Last Chance!!! At least for the BBQ registration for this Saturday..


However, not to worry! You are still welcome to drop by. You must just bring your own lunch 🙂

We will have some speeches , testimonies, movie clips, music, introductions and more.
We very much hope you will stop by and say hello.

We know you Servers don’t seem to like to be recognized !?!?! But we are trying anyway. And very much appreciate what you are doing for the community. We sent out 22 invitations for those who work serving at the Salvation Army. Zero elected to come to a meal offered by them to their helpers ! The restaurant 5th day wanted to celebrate their 1 year anniversary with a thank-you evening. Over 40 STC volunteers and service providers were invited.. but so few signed up; it hat to be cancelled..

Please come and join us.. Please sign up NOW on the web site, for sure by Wednesday (for food planning) Thanks..

Several more events will be coming up in the next few weeks , do keep in touch.

We will be taking bookings for the first of a couple of events for the handicapped kids at Clair Bois.

Our big event where we could use about 100 volunteers is the Partage Food collection, and later Sorting of the collected food.. Of course we have Mt. Brillant, Salvation Army & 5th day food kitchens, all working.

Thanks for being so faithful..

The Serve the City Geneva team..

P.S. We have a separate signup if you want to contribute to Saturdays event.

We could use 2 more servers help set up the show, need disc jockey to bring a playlist, We could use a few more potato salads, or reasonable substitute.. Merci..
