            Election Day
    Saturday, September 9th, 2006
       Response to our requests for cakes and volunteers on the day has been
minimal and therefore, the likelihood of conducting our Election Day Sausage
Sizzle and Cake Stall is uncertain. We urgently need more volunteers to help
on the day in both our Sausage Sizzle and our Cake Stall, as well as
generous donations of items for our cake stall.

If every family donated at least one cake / slice or item for our cake stall, we
would certainly have sufficient for a successful Stall.

This is our last chance to recruit volunteers. If you are able to help just for one
hour, please fill in the form below and return it URGENTLY to the school by
Friday morning, 8th September. Unfortunately, if we do not have sufficient
volunteers by Friday morning, the cake stall and sausage sizzle will be cancelled.
A decision will be made on Friday morning on the viability of continuing with this
venture. The few people who have indicated their support will be contacted with
the decision on Friday morning. It would be a shame to miss out on such an
obvious fund raising opportunity.
