If you are getting this email it is because you are interested in helping or being part of the Midwest Catholic Family Conference.
Thank you for whatever help you might have already rendered.
I am writing today to ask again for the help. For 20 years this conference has been an all-volunteer conference. We have worked hard to keep costs down and keep the prices low so as many families as could were able to attend. Unfortunately for the past few years, our volunteer numbers have not kept up with our attendance numbers. This year we are really finally facing a crisis.
We don’t have enough. In particular in our children’s program. In this program that is so important for our families. So important so that parents, newer and older, can recharge their faith and understanding to raise their families with renewed vigor.
Volunteer full-day or half-day.
We are at the point of having to consider other options. Possibly charging for the children’s program, so we could pay for teachers to be in the rooms. Perhaps only serving a certain number, a first come first serve basis. The worst option, closing the children’s program altogether.
I understand that volunteering in the children’s program is difficult. I do. I have done it. Many times. But we need help. Think of the alternative. If this is impossible for you please consider volunteering somewhere else. We need you! This is a chance to help us continue this conference.
I am a volunteer. I do this because I love the conference, but I can’t do it alone. None of the chair people can. We all need help. Please help.
Here is the contact information for the children’s program chairperson. Yes, another volunteer. Please contact her and tell her you would be happy to help. To take some time with the children and give back. If not there, there are many other places we need help. My contact information is second. Contact me. I will gladly help you get involved, even if you are not from Wichita. I do not actually live in Wichita anymore. I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I help. I do what I can. Please help us.
By phone from 7:00 AM-10:00 PM
Thank you and God bless,
Speaker Chair Midwest Catholic Family Conference
