“If I can help somebody, cheer somebody,
with a word or a song, then my living will not be in vain.”

With 2200 members and growing, we currently have over 270 volunteers!
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and become more involved in the Club. Volunteering also helps out the Club, as many aspects are managed by its members.

All the income collected by the individual clubs within the Evergreen family and by the Evergreen Lounge food services and special events are invested back into the Club to pay for expenses and buy new equipment.

To get started, fill out a Volunteer Registration Form and submit to the Filberg Centre front counter, or in person or by email to Cathy Audia (email address below). Thank you!

If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact the Assistant Coordinator, Cathy Audia at 250.338.1000, or email caudia@courtenay.ca.

 

CURRENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Kick off to Fall Garage Sale
The Evergreen Club is hosting a garage sale on Saturday September 22 at the Rotary Hall from 9:00 am-12:00 noon. Donations are very much appreciated and will be received Sep. 10th-14th and Sep. 17th-20th. We will need some help with the donation table, set-up on Friday September 21 and on the sale on September 22 as well.

Friday Night Dance Bartender (Pop Service)
Love live music? And have a desire to quench our thirsty dancers? Then we want you to be a volunteer for our pop service for our Friday night dances. Full training will be provided. Must be comfortable with cash duties, spoken orders, and closing up. Training provided. Or alternatively, do you have Serving it Right and want to help bartend at one of our licensed special events? We want to hear from you folks too!

Summer Celebration!
Ice Cream Sundaes in the park? Yes please! We are hosting a social in the park on Thursday August 16 at 1:00. We will be making ice cream Sundaes ! We are looking for some volunteers to help out.

Kitchen Caller
This is a call out for someone who will be able to receive voice mail and reply in a timely manner. Periodically, a volunteer can’t make their kitchen shift and we need a volunteer to call someone in to cover it (from the detailed spare sheet we provide you with). If you are comfortable on the phone, then this is for you! Each month five kitchen callers fill the spares for one calendar week. It’s always a plus if you are email friendly but not mandatory.

July 21st Pancake Breakfast
We are looking for a convenor (or ideally two co-convenors) for heading up the organizing of volunteers for the Market Day Pancake Breakfast Buffet. It takes upwards of a couple dozen people to put on this ‘Everyone Welcome’ event (it’s nice to divide people up in different shift times for a smaller commitment). It’s a great way to start your day volunteering and giving back to the Evergreen Club (then go spend time downtown checking out the sales and entertainment on 5th Street!)

Kitchen Spares
We appreciate any time you can offer! We are always looking to add more kitchen volunteers to our spare board. Various times include opening shift 8am-10am, AM host shift 10am-1pm, Dishwasher shift 11:30am-1:30pm, and the closing PM host shift of 1pm-3:00pm when the kitchen closes and then the shutdown process begins. We like to match the spare shifts to your needs and preferences so you won’t be called unnecessarily. Training provided. Working in the kitchen is a fun way to get to know some of your peers.

 

Those listed above are just a sample of some of the opportunities we have for volunteering.
