Set Up and Tear Down
Set up begins at 10:00am on the day of the Banquet, and usually takes 2 - 3 hours.
We will be setting up tables and arranging seating. Once that's completed then all of the lines/dinnerware is placed on the tables.
This can be hard work - so you need to be physically able to stand for long periods of time. You should also come willing to do whatever needs to be done - and preferably, be someone who can see a job that needs to be done and who steps in and does it - without being asked! The staff/volunteers from Silent Voices are going to have a LOT of things to get done - and it helps us tremendously if we're working with self-motivated people!
Tear down will begin about 15 minutes after the program ends - but should be no later than 9:30pm. With enough people it can go pretty quickly - so the more people we have the faster we can all go home!
