Serving up a hot mealIII. Helpful Hints

Please insure that you put your name on any dishes that you need to have returned to you.

It helps if you would label the casseroles so that we know what is in it. We sometimes have trouble telling if we have a vegetarian or a meat dish.

Here is a handy signup sheet
