Sarpy County Fair Food Booth – July 31- Aug 4

Food fair

Can you believe the fair is only 2 ½ months away?  That means it is time to staff the Knights of Columbus food booth at the Sarpy County Fair.  You can sign up for a shift or 5 if you would like at this link: Fair Food Booth Sign Up

In case you are not aware, we serve breakfast, lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday and it takes a village to cover all the shifts.  The proceeds go into our Knights of Columbus church community to provide scholarships, coats for kids, and many other worthwhile efforts. 

We appreciate everybody’s help and if you have a teen looking for service hours this is a great way to get some!  We need help stocking pop, cleaning tables, removing trash and re-filling condiments.  Please let us know, we can find a job for your child.

If you have any questions please contact Ralph Meister, (402) 707-8426 or ralphlmeister@hotmail.com
