Meeting Refreshment Assignments

Continuing in 2015, we are going to use a "rotating" scheme for providing meeting refreshments, rather than trying to find one or two members willing to handle refreshments for every meeting. To volunteer for a meeting, contact  David, KC2WUF or David, K2MUN.

We are now using the pots in the kitchen at The DeCorso Community Center of New Providence and you just need to show up a little early so that you can brew 2 pots (one regular and one decaf). Instructions for making the coffee will be forthcoming on this website, but in the mean time ask for help from any of the members who have already taken a turn.

The snack(s) for the meeting will still need to be provided from an outside source, but can be anything including homemade cakes, banana bread, cookies, etc. or store bought cakes, cookies, etc.

The standard "refreshments assignment" is to:


brew some coffee: one regular and one decaf and a second of either if needed


provide half and half or milk (cost reimbursed with receipt)


provide a snack such as donuts, cookies, or cake -- home-made snacks are always well received (cost reimbursed with receipt)


clean up the pots, filter cups and the general area in the back

Please set out an improvised "Donations" cup to collect cash donations from members. You will not need to donate every time, but may consider donating every so often. You may also wish to donate occasionally to the Senior Center cup for the supplies which we do not provide. If you have any receipts for milk or snacks, please submit them to the Treasurer (Dave K2YG) for an immediate reimbursement of your costs. All collected monies are to go to the Treasurer (Dave K2YG) at the end of the night.
