Spring Carnival 2011

The Carnival Committee wants to thank EVERYONE who came out to the Spring Carnival on Friday, June 3rd, 2011. We estimate we had about 800 people at the event. The Ross Road Community is the Best!

The music was GREAT. The decorations were wonderful and the food was delicious (and healthy, but don’t tell the kids). The best part was seeing the faces of all the children. It is always so much fun to see the kids running and smiling while their parents have time to talk to friends and neighbours.

Our goal this year was to make at least $2000 for the 2011/12 PAC budget. This year our net profit was $7200!!! WOW! Can you believe that we sold 10,000 tickets? That is truly amazing. So, to all of you who brought your children, bought tickets and had fun at the Carnival, thank you for sharing your evening (and your $20 bills) with us!

If you see your class rep, could you please say a special thank you to them. They work VERY hard at getting volunteers to help out. Please acknowledge their hard work.

For those of you who brought cakes and mystery bags, all we can say is WOW! We made $1800 on the cake walk alone! Mystery Bags lasted longer than usual this year. We always run out before the end of the Carnival, but this year we lasted well into the second hour! Many thanks for your donations!

On behalf of the Carnival Committee, we say “Thank you Ross Road Parents! You are truly wonderful!”

We always welcome suggestions for future events. If you have any comments, please send them on to jane@jimediaconnections.com.
