URGENT CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS BY 3PM TOMORROW!

We still need close to 100 volunteers to run Fall Fete. Please consider signing up for a 2 hour session. At this time we still need volunteers for the following activities:

Balloon Toss
3 Legged Race
Baseball Bottle Smash
Hi-Striker
Pumpkin Guessing Game
Jumbo Bouncy Castle
Obstacle Course
Toilet Bowl Toss

Please keep in mind this is the primary fundraiser for Howard.  It typically raises over $25,000 and funds many of the “extra’s” that our kids love and benefit from at Howard.  If we cannot get volunteers for these activities by 3pm tomorrow these activities will not run.

Imagine the kids rioting as a result of no bouncy castles!

Please sign up tonight so we can make this event a huge success!

Sign Up Now!

Thank-you,

Fall Fete Co-Chairs

TWO MORE SLEEPS UNTIL FALL FETE! PLEASE PULL OUT YOUR APRONS…

We need:

CAKES FOR THE CAKE WALK!
Please drop off your crazy scary nut-free cakes to the tables in the hall outside the office by lunch tomorrow!  Cakes will be judged and prizes awarded!  Then try your luck at winning one of them in our popular Cake Walk at the Fete.

BAKE TABLE!
Bring your nut-free goodies to be sold at the bake table: squares, cookies, cupcakes and other delectable treats.  Gluten-free also welcome. Drop them off in the “storage room” across the hall from the music room on Friday night or Saturday morning by 9am.

Any questions, please contact us at fallfetehoward@gmail.com.

Thank-you,

Fall Fete Co-Chairs,

DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE 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 favourite.  Cookies, cake, breads, pastries, anything you can whip up!

Gluten-free also welcome.  We would love to have a gluten-free section at the bake table this year.

Kindly bring your baked goods to school Friday after school or on Saturday before 9:00am.

Thank-you,
The Bake Sale Team

4 More Sleeps…MANY More Volunteers!

Fall Fete is Saturday, October 14th, 2017 (10:00am – 2:00pm)…only 4 more sleeps!

Only 50% of the volunteers positions have been filled…we still need 150+ volunteers to have all areas of this HUGE FUNDRAISER running in full force!  We need kitchen staff and BBQ staff to ensure that we can feed the masses (and clean up after them)! We need ticket sellers for all the amazing raffles, games and crafts!  We need people to run all the games so you can walk-away with prizes.  Areas that are not staffed will not be operational during the Fete…this means no candy floss, no basket raffle, no toilet bowl toss

The success of the Fete depends on our volunteers.  There are shifts for Adults,  High School Students, Jr. High Students and Grade 5/6 Howard students.  High School students get credit towards their volunteer hours.  Please sign up for a 2 hour shift (or two) by clicking the link below.  The Fete is only as good as the Howard community makes it…together we can make it the best yet!

THE BIG DAY IS ALMOST HERE

Have your kids been talking non-stop about the Fall Fete? It fast approaching – Saturday, October 14th from 10am to 2pm.

We hope you’re as excited as they are! Rain or shine, the Fete is always great fun!
We still need a number of items to ensure that the Fete is as successful as it always is…

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 and we need donations as soon as possible to make interesting baskets to raffle off.
Please, if you are out shopping, 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!
