Fun times at fab fete

All old favourites back: frog throw, rides, raf­fles & dis­plays

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

THE an­nual Can­non­vale State School fete fundraiser is back again this year with plenty of fun for the whole fam­ily.

All of the old favourites of years gone by will re­turn in­clud­ing the rides, raf­fles, stalls, show­bags, scav­enger hunt and gi­ant Lego dis­play.

Can­non­vale State School P and C trea­surer Sue Grif­fiths said the fete would again be rais­ing funds to im­prove the school.

“The P and C goal is to raise funds for on­go­ing sup­port for the school whilst re­tain­ing a fund to even­tu­ally add a stor­age fa­cil­ity to the school hall and up­grade the AV sys­tem in the hall,” she said.

This year they have had the challenge of work­ing around the con­struc­tion of their new state-of-the-art prep and grade one build­ing that will be open­ing next year.

But as well as old favourites there will also be a cake stall, Mr Booth’s fa­mous frog throw and the plate competition.

“The chil­dren have the op­por­tu­nity to win fete dol­lars on the day too by en­ter­ing our ‘My teacher on a Plate’ comp. You ba­si­cally draw your teacher on a paper plate and en­try fee is a plate of cakes for the stall. Coun­cil­lor Jan Clif­ford and Mrs Merewyn Wright will be judg­ing this on the day,” Ms Grif­fiths said.

P and C pres­i­dent Mandy Ben­nett said they wanted eve- ry­one to know it was an event for the whole com­mu­nity.

“We need the com­mu­nity’s sup­port,” she said.

“Come and have a great day, spend some money and sup­port us. It will be great.

“Ev­ery­one’s wel­come, the whole com­mu­nity, that’s what we’re try­ing to make it – a com­mu­nity event.”
