Volunteers Needed: SEA-PAH BBQ

SEA-PAH has scheduled our next BBQ at The Cuff for Sunday September 10th starting at 4:00PM.

We are in need of volunteers to help cook, serve, and sell at this BBQ. Those interested in cooking for the BBQ must have their Washington State Food Handler’s Permit. If you do not already have one but would like to get one so you can assist in cooking, you can do so by taking a short food safety course here. The cost of the card is currently $10.

If you are interesting in volunteering for this, please contact Director Brujo.

Camp K9 Scholarship Request Deadline

One of the benefits of SEA-PAH Membership is the ability to request the use of the SEA-PAH Scholarship Fund for aid in attending SEA-PAH events that have a cost associated with them. Members can privately request financial assistance for entry cost to events like Camp K9 so you can join SEA-PAH for these events.

 

We are currently providing Scholarship Funds for members who wish to attend Camp K9, the deadline for these requests is this Friday, August 18th at 10:00pm PDT. Please make sure you request scholarship funds by this date.

 

Additional information on the requirements to request scholarship funds, and how to do so, is available on the SEA-PAH Scholarship Fund page of this website.
