A big thank you to all those people who cooked goodies for us to sell today at the Bunnings Cake Stall and thank you to the helpers today who helped to sell. The result of all that cooking and selling was an amazing profit of $ 1,390.00 one of our best results for a single fund raising event.
Thank you once gain to all the people who cooked and helped today.

We have our next Fund Raising Event on the 7.5.2016 which is a cake stall at Bunnings (the one near Harvey Norman). The last cake stall we did on the day before Father's day last year was a great success and we raised over $1,000, to achieve this we will need help from all families of our Cubs, Scouts and Venturers.
As we did last year we will supply the containers to put the food in we will then need cakes, slices, biscuits etc cooked and placed in the containers. I will be collecting them on the Friday night at the hall on the 6.5.2016. I will be at the hall tonight at the end of the Cubs at 7.45pm to speak to people and hand out containers, i will also be at the hall Wednesday night at 8.45pm and on Friday night at 8.45pm, i will aslo be do the same next week.
It would be great if all families could cook and provide at least 10 containers of goodies to be sold, each container of cupcakes has 4 cakes and around 6 pieces of slice or biscuits.
The ingrediants and name of the goodies will need to be displayed on the container, this can be a printed label or written on with a Sharpie Pen.
Please make sure you see me this week or early next week to collect containers and help make the event successful.

This week two of our Venturers completed the four day Cox's River Loop Hike near Katoomba with other Venturers from our Region. Well done to all our Venturers. ...
