2019 Parish Fete Updates


Weekend 2 - 3 November

This is the LAST WEEK!

This is a friendly reminder that the Cake Stall will be more than happy to receive any and all of your baking offers. This is the stall in the Fete that everyone loves to visit and take home a little something sweet for the next day, so please help to keep it well stocked.

We will be setting up the Fete from 8.00am next Saturday, 9th November, and would really appreciate as much help as possible to do this. Many hands make light work!

If you would like to donate bacon and eggs, please drop them off in “The Shack” fridge this coming week.

We will have a limited supply of steak and onion rolls next week, so be sure to grab one ASAP.

We would like to request that all White Elephant items be dropped off no later than Monday 4th November. This gives the team time to catalogue all the items already received in time for the Fete on Sunday.

The scratchie tree has over $270 worth of scratchies this week, so we have almost reached our $300 target.

We are still looking for a few volunteers for the day. If you can help us out, please chat to the Fete Co-Ordinator after Mass.

We will be handing out some flyers after Mass and would love it if you could please pass these onto your friends, family and neighbours.

Please don’t forget that there will only be one Mass next Sunday which will be at 9:00am. The Fete will then open at 10:00am.


Weekend 26 - 27 October

Image

We only have another 2 weeks for you to drop off any items you think would be great for the White Elephant Stall. We would like to stop the drop off of items after Monday 4 November so that we have time to catalogue all the items received before the big day.

If you have been blessed to have very generous family and friends who have helped you to sell all the raffle tickets we handed out a few weeks ago, then please return them next week. If you haven’t been as lucky , then please feel free to return any unsold raffle books/tickets.

We have some amazing things planned for the Action Alley this year, but to truly make it a success we need some more volunteers to help man each activity for a 2-hour stint. We will have someone outside today, taking down names and preferred time slots, so please if you would like to get involved, now is the time.


Weekend 19 - 20 October

Three Weeks to go!

We will be handing out raffle books as you leave Mass today. We would appreciate it if each family would take one, to try and sell as many raffle tickets to family, friends and neighbours.

We mentioned a few weeks ago that if you have a love of knitting, crocheting or sewing, we would love to see the fruits of your labour on the Fancy Goods stall. If you are in the process of making something or think that you have something at home that would be good for the stall please speak to Sue Spiteri.

We have a new item on the Chocolate Wheel this year and I'm sure there are loads that will be lining up to have a spin on the wheel for it:

A Beverage Bucket!!

But to make this wonderful new prize come to life we need you to please donate your favourite alcoholic beverages.

This should be interesting!

You can drop them off before or after Mass and the Fete Committee will make sure that they remain safe until the day.

Our Scratchy Tree goal is $300 worth of scratchies, so please help us to reach it by donating as many unscratched scratchies as you can.


Weekend 12 - 13 October

4 Weeks to go!

We are requesting your help in getting items for our Tombola. Anything small will be greatly appreciated! Things such as hair ties, lollies, pens, etc, make great tombola items

Weekend 21 - 22 September

This week we want to give you a reason to do your spring cleaning a little early!

If you have any items that you feel would be good for the White Elephant Stall, please feel free to drop it off at The Shack from now on until 4 November.

Please only leave items that are in a good, clean and saleable condition.

If you have a TV or computer screen that you would like to give, we are requesting that you only leave flat screens. We have had to throw away hundreds of old screens over the years and we end up having to pay to take them to the tip. We would prefer that they get put on your next council pick up instead!


Weekend 14 - 15 September

Image

The scratchie tree was a huge hit last year with over $300 worth of scratchies on it. So if you could purchase a scratchie or two while doing your groceries and pop it into the box (unscratched) over the next few weeks it would be greatly appreciated.

We will keep you updated as to how much is being raised week by week.


Weekend 7 - 8 September

Image

This week we would like to ask for all children’s toys!

If you have any items that you feel would be good for the Toy Stall, please feel free to drop it off at The Shack from now on until November 4.

Please only leave items that are in a good, clean, saleable condition and have all their parts.

Use this as a good excuse to get rid of the toys your kids or grandkids have grown out of that are just cluttering up your house.


Weekend 31 August – 1 September

Image

Should you know of anyone who could donate farm animals that could be auctioned off on Fete Day, please speak to one of the Fete Committee members.

We got a great response to our request for plant cuttings and pots. Gay Mason now has 200 little plants to pour love into for the next 10 weeks.

We would love your help with donating any and all cans of soft drinks for the day. These can be dropped into “The Shack” at any time from now until fete day.


Weekend 24 - 25 August

I have been asked by this year’s fete committee to let you know about all the special items/requirements that the fete needs each week in preparation for this years fete.

This week I am here to let you know that the fete is going to be on Sunday 10th November, which is only 11 weeks away!!

As with previous years it is all about parish participation and very much community based, as this is the fundamental cornerstone on which our parish is built.

We are also doing the Scratchie Tree again this year as we have had some big winners the last 2 years, so we would appreciate any and all unscratched Scratchie donations. You can either drop them into the box outside or hand to one of the fete committee members.
