Company’s Comin’ – Volunteers Needed

We need “street seating” table(s) and chairs set up on East Drive!  Remember the 1896 theme and please dress your table with cloths (Ex – layered floral/color with lace topping), centerpiece and/or candelabra or dress your table with your company swagger.

.  Each dressed table will need at least 4 chairs, more if you choose.  This will allow for public seating and NO restaurant will need to apply for an outdoor seating permit for the event.

Each donor will be responsible for table setup (by 11:30) and breakdown (at 5pm).  Volunteers will keep the tables clear during the event.  Also consider dressing up in period clothing for the day!  Register seating on line today at arbutus.org or by calling 410-204-8128.

Food Offerings and Table Donation

If you are a food service, help us create an offering menu. We are fortunate to have many food choices in Arbutus. Submit your choice of special(s), we will print event maps and list everyone’s special menu item(s). This will also help our guest navigate all the food choices.

If you are a GABA member and not physically located on East Drive, space will be available for you to participate.

The Arbutus 125 is for everyone. GABA membership is not required for participation if you are located downtown, although we would love to have everyone as members. This is a great opportunity to direct market your business and gain new customers! Let’s work together to make this a great day for all in Arbutus!

Please fill out the Food Offering and Street Seating form to the right if you’re able to help.
