Tara Schlafer and Holly Kubek have volunteered to be the cooks/kitchen coordinators for Band Camp Week and for the mini-camps at FVL in June.
June 5 – June 9 / June 14 - June 17 / June 20 & 21.
Tara Schlafer has had kids in Vanguard for 6+years, is a Vanguard Alumni and also helped out with Vanguard during the years. She brings a great deal of experience with her. Holly is newer to the LVW Family, starting year 3 and is jumping in with both feet! Tammy Loeck, the cook for the past 7 years, left us great notes! We thank her for the many years of time, effort, and love she put into feeding this hard working band of teens & support staff!
We hope to add a few new items to the menu and keep many of the favorites!
For band camps, please send a bag lunch for each first day lunch of each week:
Tuesday, June 5 / Thursday June 14 / Wednesday June 20.
All other meals, along with all beverages, will be provided during camp. Please bring something healthy, such as a sandwich, fresh fruit/vegetables in addition to chips/dessert items. LVW will provide beverages for the meals.
We have found from past experience that the best liquids to drink at rehearsals are products such as Gatorade, PowerAde, lemonade and other fruit juices, or plain cold water. Please do not bring POP (soda) to drink on rehearsal days for your lunch.
***NEW*** In order to help with our band camp meals, we are asking all families, local and distant, to consider donating 5 items from the following list. These might be items you already have in your pantry at home, have easy access to or know someone who may also wish to donate to LVW. (i.e.: Grandparents, friends of LVW, alumni).

We would like 5 families to donate a cooked and boned turkey for Band Camp. The turkey would be needed at FVL on Friday morning, June 8. If you can help, please contact Tara Schlafer at 920-882-1543. Also call Tara if you have access to any type of meat.
We are also looking for volunteers to help prepare and serve the meals for the band members, director and chaperones while at FVL. HERE is a schedule for band camp meals.
We thank you for being generous with your time. Please contact Holly Kubek firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
If you know of any friends of LVW that may be able to help serve a meal or donate an item, please give them this information. We will gladly welcome them into our kitchen and the LVW family!
Again, Tara and I want to thank you for entrusting us with the task of feeding your children while they dedicate themselves to the task of “letting their light shine before men..” and that we all may live that mission every day, as we interact with each other and the community in Service to our Lord.
