Please note:
Sign-up for the Paschal Banquet (food and clean-up crew) is on the white board in the Hall.  Please bring your own serving pans, dishes and utensils — and be sure to take them home after the banquet.

For the Paschal Banquet, we are asking that you not bring hard liquor or distilled alcohol beverages to be consumed at church.  Wine, beer, kvass, hard cider, etc., are fine — if consumed responsibly and in moderation.  Please leave vodka, slivovich, arak, rakia, tuica, ouzo, scotch, gin, etc., at home (or at least un-opened if you include it in your Paschal Basket.)  Thanks.
