Oktoberfest will be here soon! Oktoberfest will be held at Firemen’s Park and we are planning for 500 guests. We will serve from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm; event ends at 4:00 pm. Events include a bean bag tournament, bingo, raffle baskets, and a silent auction. We will have barrel car rides and the Beecher Fire Department will have tours and fun events for the kids.
Oktoberfest preparation – volunteers needed: In order to make our Oktoberfest a success, we will need helping hands for Saturday preparation and on Sunday for the event itself. What can you do to help make this event a success? We need Raffle Baskets, Desserts, and sponsors for German Potato Salad ingredients. Signup sheets will be posted at St. John and Zion. Please contact Stan Heimerl firstname.lastname@example.org (312) 933-5811 or Cherie Heimerl email@example.com (708) 908-1937
We will need all the desserts, potato salad ingredients, and basket raffle items at Zion Church by 9:00 am Saturday morning September 17. We will be making the German Potato Salad in the kitchen at Zion Church on Saturday, as well as prepping all the raffle baskets and silent auction items and desserts. Please remember that desserts will be sitting out during our event, so we ask that you do not bring any items with cream cheese, whipped cream frosting, or cream pies.
Closer to the event we will post sign-up sheets for the volunteer work schedule at Zion and St. John. The more volunteers we have, the better our event will be. Most importantly, we look forward to seeing everyone for a day of food, fellowship and fun!
