One more sleep until Fall Fete!

Thank-you to those who have donated and/or volunteered in the past few days!  Things are shaping up for Fall Fete. 

It’s not too late to still contribute to this amazing event!

BAKE TABLE: We need your yummy baked goods!  We have two tables with space just for your kitchen creations.  Try out a new recipe or bring an old family favorite.  Cookies, cake, breads, pastries, anything you can whip up!  If you can’t find time to bake today we will gladly take a purchased donation from a yummy local bakery.  Gluten-free also welcome.  Please drop off all baked goods to the gym after 3:30 on Friday or before 9am on Saturday morning.

WINE RAFFLE: The easiest way to contribute to the Fall Fete. Drop off a bottle of wine (suggested minimum of $15) to the office to be assembled into cases to be won.

 BASKET RAFFLE:  We are still accepting donations for the Basket Raffle.  Help us create some unique baskets by donating new items.   This could include items for the BBQ, cooking, entertaining, spa essentials or an experience!

We look forward to seeing everyone between 10-2 on Saturday October 19th.   It’s going to be a blast!

Save the Bouncy Castles…

We still need close to 150 volunteers to run Fall Fete. Please consider signing up for a 2 hour shift or we may have rioting children on our hands when they arrive at Fall Fete to see this:

Bouncy Castle

At this time we still need volunteers for the following activities:

All Bouncy Castles
Cookie & Pumpkin Decorating
Most Games
Haunted House
Bake Table

And we can’t forget Chez Howard!  We are still in need of many helping hands to feed the masses.

Please keep in mind this is a primary fundraiser for Howard and funds many of the “extra’s” that our kids love and benefit from.  If we cannot get volunteers for these activities by Friday these activities will not run.

Please sign up today so we can make this event a huge success.

Fall Fete is almost here…

Have your kids been talking non-stop about the Fall Fete? It’s fast approaching – Saturday, October 19th from 10am to 2pm.

We still need many volunteers and the bins outside the office for basket raffle, fish pond and the wine raffle have been bare!   We need your help.  Please consider donating items for the following:

WINE RAFFLE!
Have an extra bottle left over from Thanksgiving? The wine raffle is the easiest way to contribute to the Fall Fete. Drop off a bottle of wine (suggested minimum of $15) to the office to be assembled into cases to be won.

BASKET RAFFLE
One of the highlights of the Fall Fete is our Basket Raffle. It takes a lot of time to organize and assemble the baskets so we need donations as soon as possible.

Please think about picking up a few new items for the baskets. We really need items related to: men’s items, women’s items, gourmet food & kitchen items, health & exercise, home spa and beauty items, gardening, and items for a movie night or a rainy day.
You can drop these items off in the basket outside the Office (the sooner, the better).

FISH POND
Our fish farm is not well stocked – We need TONS more lures.  Make a reel difference! Tackle your annoying toy clutter!  Cast out your small unbroken items for the Fall Fete Fish Pond.  Think about items no larger than a deck of cards, things that aren’t broken and please no plush toys. Please send with your child to the tackle box just outside of the school office.

VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED!
We still need many volunteers to make sure the Fete is a success.  If you haven’t already; please sign up for a shift by clicking the link below.  Many hands make light work!

Sign Up Now!

BAKE TABLE
Bake an extra pie or a dozen cookies for the Bake Table! Gluten free options welcome.  Drop off bake table items at the nurses office Friday Oct 18th or by 9am on Saturday Oct 19th.
