All dishes cleaned and put away in organized fashion.

Unopened food can be returned to the Conference Service Food Closet to be sold to a later conference, or it can be given to Pels if it is fun. Opened sodas and snacks should go to Pels for Break and lunch. Alcohol should only remain if it has specifically been left for the next conference. All other alcohol should be removed. Wine is appreciated for cooking purposes, and should also be saved for Pel Auction items such as the Fancy Dinner and the Boat Cruise.

Boxes broken down and brought to Kitchen back loading dock.
Freezer filled with ice.
Benches/tables wiped down
Corners/under benches/piano dusted
Check windows (cleanliness and state of screens/panes),
The floor needs to be waxed every week, and it looks very good if it is waxed (with Diamond Shine ) and if it is not walked on while it is drying, so tape it off well. In 2012, despite careful taping, daytrippers were still walking through the areas (we found a bare footprint one week) and messing up the wax (Apparently they just thought we didn't want them in there for no good reason). We made signs for each entrance/exit explaining that wax was drying and that seemed to keep them out.
Shake out rugs/mats.
If any tables, chairs or other unnatural items are outside, bring them into an appropriate building
Go back to Newton later to take down the tape and arrange the furniture nicely
Take down the trashcans that you would have put up on tables, and the non folding/nonstacking chairs should be put out nicely, also replace the mats.
The Black Living Traditions hymnals are used for all weeks except for UCC weeks. For these weeks, the Red Pilgrim hymnals should be brought up along with some bibles and some of the bigger red songbooks. For Laity weekend (UCC)/Pel reunion(UU), hymnals will need to be switched out in between services.
There should be 3 hymnals per row they should be placed so that the open part of the book is along the arm rest, with the front of the book showing.
The Chalice should be in the chapel for all weeks but the UCC weeks. For these weeks, the cross should be brought up. For Laity weekend (UCC)/Pel reunion(UU), the chalice and cross will need to be switched out in between services.
