House Committee This volunteer area is managed by Club Trustees and includes general clubhouse and grounds maintenance and cleaning, on an as needed basis. Communication for need is through email to committee members. If interested, contact area organizer, Mary Munster
During the Lancaster Liederkranz's long history, hundreds of volunteers have donated countless hours of their time. Without volunteers, our club could not exist as we know it. Occasionally, we enlist the help of members with specific vocational or occupational experience (i.e.) electrician, plumber, carpentry/construction, food service, etc.
A volunteer interest form is provided to our new applicants. However, any member may complete the form and be added to our volunteer database. Filling out the form does not mean you are automatically signed-up for that area; however, the information is made available to fest organizers and club trustees who may contact you if they are in need of specific volunteers.
