Fair Booth Committee Update ~ July 1, 2012…The Countdown Is On!!
Exciting News: We have a new fryer for fries!! A huge “Thank You” to Bill Luchynski for ordering the fryer, Becky Schille’s driver for delivering it for us, and to Bill & Leo Bugiak for hooking it up Monday morning while we were cleaning the booth!
We should be able to keep up to the fries orders now!!
Cleaning Bee: Thanks very much to those who helped clean the booth last Monday! It is greatly appreciated! Tuesday, July 3rd, we will finish up the major cleaning (9am only), and do a final wipe on Monday, July 9th (9am) before the rides start to roll!
Staffing the Booth: Still a few shifts to fill, please call Karen Ollen @ home 306-825-2976 or on cell 780-871-8191. She is also in need of some extras, in case she receives some cancellations. It is a fun time and a great way to help out the Church financially.
Kids & the Grandstand: Sherlane & Gary Phillips are still looking for kids aged 10+ years to help out at the Grandstand. Please call her @ home 780-875-7918 or on Gary’s cell 780-872-0302.
Passes for the Gate: Passes for your shifts at the booth will be available for pick-up on Sunday, July 8th in the Narthex from Deb Lundquist. If you are not in Church on Sunday, then they will be in the Church Office on Monday, July 9th. Please arrange to pick up your passes before your shift, and take them with you. We have new passes this year, which will be scanned when you enter the fairgrounds.
Anyone Interested in Taking Charge?...
The Exhibition Office has booked a “Bob Dylan” Concert at the Exhibition Grounds for Friday, August 10, 2012, and has inquired if the Grace United Church Fair Booth would be open for it.
The new Fair Booth Committee has their hands full this year with the Colonial Days and the CPCA Finals, and with getting volunteers for these events, we don’t feel we can take on another event and do all 3 justice.
However…if there is anyone interested in taking charge and doing this…please call Marilyn McAllister @ home 780-875-4383 or cell 780-808-4245 as soon as possible.
Come One…Come All!!
