@sunsetchristy:  I think the program hand outs is more of a chore but someone has to do it.  The other honors are good.  I really can’t think of anything to add to your list.

Not everyone will think that getting a B-list job is an honour, no matter how you go about it.

I would invite who you like to do the jobs that you actually need filled, and not worry about getting everyone special to you a “special” job. 

If you really want to honour someone get them a gift, write them a nice note, say something nice about them in a speech, sit them somewhere special, get them a corsage so they stand out etc. 

Program person is definitely bunk though, and I would skip that at all costs.  The others could be ok.  But people will still know they are the B team.
