43,440 hot dogs not needed
THANKS to more than $100,000 from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund, Monto State Primary School children have new school oval seating, an old fort removed, a new fort built and a large weather-proof shade structure.
“We calculated we would have to sell more than 135,749 patty cakes or 43,440 hot dogs to raise this amount of money,” grant applicant Anita Salisbury said.
Principal Matt Silvester, teaching staff and P&C representatives were joined by Mayor Don Waugh, school patron Don Jensen and DJ Steel office manager Rachel Zeith for the opening of the new equipment.
“We want to thank the Community Benefit Fund for their support and the approval of four grants in a row,” Mrs Salisbury said.
