I just wanted to follow up on our weekend Sausage Sizzle. It’s always heartening to see people willing to give up their time to help the school and last weekend was a classic example. We worked in scorching heat and pouring rain.
It’s unfortunate that the numbers were down which took Officeworks by surprise as well. In 2016 during the same back to school weekend Officeworks had 4 times the number of shoppers coming to the Store. Anthony the manger decided that since we had such a low turnout, he would donate the cost of the sausages to the Lathlain P&C. This was very generous of him especially as he had no obligation to do so and I want to thank him and Officeworks for their support.
For our efforts we made just under $400 after costs and still have 21Kilo of sausages ad Eskies full of drinks that can be used at the Picnic on the Green, our traditional Lathlain family afternoon picnic, coming up on Friday the 17th February.
The returns may be down from expectations but we may improve this bottom line after the 19th.
So once again, thank you for taking the time to help make a difference for your school and I look forward to spending more time with you over the course of the school year at future events.
Lathlain P&C President
