Birthday Celebration and Tea with Anthony Event Volunteer

Position description: 

The West End Seniors' Network (WESN) is dedicated to improving the lives of older adults in our community by providing social, educational and recreational programs and services.

We host a Tea with Anthony (Executive Director) on the first Monday of every month and a birthday party on the second or third Monday of every month to celebrate any of our members born in that month. We are looking for someone who could help us on the two Mondays from 12:00PM-3:00PM with set-up, serving and take-down. Set-up and take-down involves moving furniture, tables and chairs, so we are looking for someone who is physically able to lift heavier objects, and stand for longer periods, making and serving tea.

You'll have fun and meet lots of interesting people!
