Fall Fete – Sat Oct 14th

 

Hello Howard Community,

Don’t forget to save the date: Saturday, October 14th, 10am-2pm

This year’s Fall Fete is coming together but we still need to fill some key positions!
GAMES COORDINATOR

Are you handy? Like using tools and putting stuff together??  This is a great job for someone who can’t commit a bunch of time beforehand but can take the lead setting up the beloved Mini-putt and the ever popular TOILET TOSS!  The games coordinator comes in on the Friday before the Fete at 3:30, and helps to set up the games and makes sure that we have volunteers for the games during the Fete.  There are lots of veterans who know the drill and are happy to help out but we need someone to step up and take the lead!  We think this would be the perfect role for a couple Howard Dads!

This is a crucial part of the Fall Fete.  The FOOD!  We have had an amazing duo organizing all of the generous donations of food from our Roncy restaurant partners for FIVE years and they are looking for some eager foodie parents to partner with them and learn the ropes.  Many of our coordinators have been in these roles for years and they are looking to pass the torch to the next generation of parents.
Bouncy Castle Coordinator:  The Bouncy Castles have already been booked but we need someone to meet the company when they are dropped off the morning of the Fete and then ensure we have enough volunteers. Again, not a huge job, but an important one, because it’s possible the kids would riot if there were no bouncy castles.
Haunted House Coodinator:  Do you love Halloween and scary movies?   Then step up for the super fun role of haunted house coordinator.  We are looking for someone to take the lead on design and setup this year.  We have lots of props from last year but we are hoping a new lead will bring some unique haunts of their own!
Cake Walk Coordinator:  Do you love cake? Then this one is for you.  This is the final year for our current Cake Walk Coordinator.  We are looking for someone to shadow this year and learn the ropes so they can take the lead next year.  Line ups stretch past the office for this event! This is the perfect volunteer spot for one of our newer JK/SK parents looking to get involved.

Fortune Teller:  Do you have a flare for the dramatic,  do you like to tell stories?  Then you would be a great fit for this volunteer position.  We are in need of a new fortune teller this year.  We are looking for one (or two people to share) this creative role and have a bit of fun with the kids!
If you would like to take on one of these roles, please email the Fall Fete Co-Chairs:  Erin McCanaugh, Nancy Colette, Olivia Burgess and Beth Macintosh at fallfetehoward@gmail.com

 

 Fall Fete is our biggest fundraiser ($25,000+), and without all of your help, it just won’t be as fun or as successful.  If you aren’t able to take on a bigger role this year, don’t worry, you can still contribute!  There will be a volunteer website set up in the coming days where you can volunteer for a 2 hour shift.  For those that sign up early, there will be an early bird draw of THREE 1 hour Registered Massage Therapy massages from Evolve Chiropractic.

There will also be a call for donations for the: the basket raffle, wine raffle, etc.  Stay tuned!

Thank you!
