St Joseph’s is gear­ing up

Central and North Burnett Times - - LIFE -

THE an­nual St Joseph’s Par­ish Fete is re­turn­ing to Gayndah on Fri­day, Novem­ber 25 from 5.30pm on the school grounds.

St Joseph’s em­ployee Amy Glis­son said the fete helped to strengthen the re­la­tion­ships be­tween the church and school as well as the wider com­mu­nity.

“The fete is a ma­jor source of their fundrais­ing and the school and par­ish work re­ally closely to­gether,” Mrs Glis­son said.

“We are ex­cited to an­nounce that we are hav­ing some new stalls to help draw new peo­ple to the event, in­clud­ing a photo booth, flow­ers, cloth­ing and your in­spi­ra­tion at home prod­ucts along with all the old favourites.

“Pop­u­lar stalls from the past will in­clude things like the ham wheel, ma­jor raf­fles and rides, a side show al­ley and a sweets stall.”

Some other stalls and at­trac­tions on of­fer will in­clude a body shop, crafts sta­tion for the cre­atively minded and some desserts and cup­cake dec­o­rat­ing for any­one with a sweet tooth.

“This is an an­nual event where we want to draw in more vis­i­tors to our school and par­ish,” Mrs Glis­son said.

“As well as a great fam­ily night out it’s also a great op­por­tu­nity to sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses who have helped with the event.

“This will be a fun night for peo­ple of all ages.”

Ride wrist­bands are on sale at the school of­fice giv­ing un­lim­ited rides on the night of the fete with the ma­jor raf­fle tick­ets be­ing sold on the night.

First prize is $900 worth of vouch­ers to be spent in Gayndah.

“The school par­ish would like to thank all those from the com­mu­nity who have sup­ported the fete through do­na­tions and spon­sor­ship,” Mrs Glis­son said.

For more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the event you can con­tact St Joseph’s on 4161 1889.
