As many of you may know, the Lodi Valley Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance will be hosting a state-wide event here to finish the rock and other work at the “rainbow bridge” between the Lodi Middle School and High School.  This event will bring dozens of people from all over the state to Lodi so that we can complete work on the longest volunteer built structure on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.

The event will be Friday – Sunday, October 30 – November 1.

I am writing to ask your help to provide support for these hard working souls who will be giving of their time and effort here in Lodi.  We will be providing meals and registration support starting with lunch on Friday and ending with lunch on Sunday.  We will be serving breakfast and suppers at the Masonic Lodge and lunch on-site at the bridge.

Here’s what would be helpful in the way of food:

We can use all the brownies, bars, cookies, and sweet breads we can get for all three days to be part of the three lunches and two breakfasts.

On Saturday we need cornbread for lunch and for supper any casserole/hot dish/one pan entrée or hearty salad you would like to make, as well as any dessert (pie, cake, bread pudding, etc.)

We also need people to volunteer their time… to help prepare, serve, and clean up after meals and to register volunteers as they arrive.

The work on Saturday is being supported and promoted by REI of Madison, so we are expecting a great turnout of volunteers.

This is an opportunity for Lodi to shine!

If you are able to donate food or your time, please contact Bill Welch at 592-5666 or billpatti@charter.net as soon as you can.  If need be, please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can to schedule your volunteer time and/or provide information on where food can be dropped off.

Thank you,

Bill Welch
