Situation Vacant - Wine Raffle Ticket Sellers

Rotary Melbourne Community Welfare Committee runs the weekly wine raffle at RCM lunches to raise funds for projects.  Due to the resignation of some of our wine rafflers this year Mary Barry is seeking some new members to sell raffle tickets - this would involve 1 or 2 Wednesdays over a six month period attending lunch in person to sell the tickets prior to the lunch.  The one catch is that the wine raffler also supplies the bottle of wine for the raffle!  Mary was wondering if you would be willing to help out as I am now pulling the roster together for the next six months. You can nominate to do just one Wed over the six month period if that would suit you.
If you are willing to assist, please let Mary know which dates you woud not be available from 1 November 2023  to 31 March 2024.
