NORTH BAY WINTER FAIR
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3rd
12:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Dear Parents & Guardians,
We are knee-deep in organising the annual Winter Fair. If you’ve been to our fairs in the past, you know they are very fun events and raise much-needed funds for North Bay. Be sure to come hungry as there will be loads of delicious International food, a café & cake stall, the very popular game area, children’s cinema, face painting & more.
While it’s a lot of fun, it takes a lot of work to pull together. To make it so successful, we need to have a large number of volunteers to help at the fair and provide DONATIONS! There are so many ways which you can help out and show your support.
SET UP & CLEAN UP
We are looking for helpers to set up on Friday afterschool, Saturday during the day from 3-5 pm & on Sunday starting at 10 am. This includes decorations, moving tables, laying out items, building up Santa’s Grotto, etc.
Do you have a holiday-themed craft which you made and are willing to donate to the Holiday Gifts table. Please contact Hannah Bradley (1st Class) at HannahLopez@hotmail.com
DONATIONS OF TOYS, BOOKS, BRIC-A-BRAC & USED CLOTHING!
Here is your chance to clear out any unwanted toys, household bric-a-brac and books for ages 7+, CDS & DVDS [no VCR tapes] and clothing. We have trouble disposing of items which are broken and missing pieces, so we ask that all items please be in sellable, good condition.
ALL NON-FOOD ITEMS CAN BE BROUGHT IN AND LEFT IN THE PARENT’S AREA LOCATED BEHIND THE SHARED AREA FROM TODAY ONWARDS.
MAKE A FAVOURITE INTERNATIONAL DISH
Have a special International dish which you would like to make? Please contact Mertxe at firstname.lastname@example.org
