  1. SDCC info station volunteers: Wintermarkt is a great opportunity for residents & friends of the neighborhood to learn about our community. Volunteers at this station are available to describe the role of getting neighbors signed up for the e-mail list, and talk to residents who have questions and/or an interest in getting involved.
  2. Food station volunteers: Food station volunteers will take orders and give customers a ticket to pick up their food at the BBQ stand. BBQ, Roasted chestnuts, pretzels, soup, and more will also be for sale. A food sheriff will help direct volunteers at the food tent. Food sales serve as a fundraiser with proceeds benefiting SDCC.
  3. Beer and wine station: At this station volunteers provide two great options to neighbors: refreshing German-style beer or warm Gluhwein. Which will prove the most popular this year will depend on the weather!
