43,440 hot dogs not needed

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.
