It is nearly time for our annual Summer Fair Family Fundraising Event at North Bay. We hope that many of you are joining us with your family & friends for a very fun event which raises much-needed funds for our school. Come hungry as we plan on having loads of delicious BBQ, International food, a café featuring Bewley’s coffee & tea, cake stall, ice cream the very popular game area, face painting, bouncy castle, used clothing (new this year!), books, toys & bric-a-brac, plant stall and more!
While it is a lot of fun, it takes a lot of work to pull together. To make it so successful, we need to have many volunteers and are asking for your help.
COME GET INVOLVED – HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP
WORK A STALL
Every stall at the event will need staff for two hour shifts. Shift 1: 12:10-2:30 pm & Shift 2: 2:20-4:30 pm. We have stalls which still require supervision so please reach out today. Permission slips for student volunteers from 5th & 6th class will be sent home soon.
SET UP & CLEAN UP
We are looking for helpers to set up on Friday afterschool, and Sunday starting at 9:45 am. This includes decorations, moving tables, laying out all the items, building up the marquees, etc. And then at the end of the event, help tidy up – the more hands, the better!
DONATIONS OF TOYS, BOOKS, BRIC-A-BRAC ITEMS & USED CLOTHING!
Here is your chance to clear out any unwanted clothing (new this year), toys, bric-a-brac and books for ages 7+, CDS & DVDS. We ask that all items please be in sellable, good condition. Please bring in these items and put in the back room behind the SHARED AREA.
CAFÉ & CAKE STALL ITEMS
Nut-free treats for the cake stall are welcome the morning of the event. If you can’t get it there early, no worries, please bring along when you come.
