Kiwanis Fundraiser @ JB Stephens Carnival

Hi Friends,

Just wanted to bring everyone up to speed about the carnival at J. B. Stephen's Elementary next Friday, April 22, 2016.  My memory was way off on the time I told you last week.  The carnival runs from 6-9pm.  So sorry for the mix-up.  Hope it doesn't inconvenience any of you.

I hope to get as much of the food donated as possible but I have hit a major snag in that plan.  Robert Flanagan, Kroger manager and very generous donor to the club, has been transferred to the New Castle store.  I'm meeting with the co-manager at Kroger on Sunday to ask for his help.  If necessary, I will also go to Marsh & Wal-Mart.

Thanks to all of you who signed up to help work that evening.  I will have a sheet for everyone at Tuesday's meeting with the various jobs.  I think we need to be at the school to start prepping at 4pm. The hot dogs will already be cooked when I bring them.  At the school, we'll put them in the buns and wrap them in aluminum hot dog wrappers to store and serve from roasters.  I need to borrow 4 roasters.  Also, I think I will need at least 4 large coolers for drinks. Please let me know if you can lend either of these to us for that night.

For you cookie makers, I need 200 bags of 2 cookies in a bag.  I would like for them to be about 3" in diameter.  I need 100 bags of 1 2" x 3" brownie in a bag.  Lastly, 100 cupcakes need to be baked.  KBMSK has an over-abundance of small Styrofoam plates we will use for the cupcakes and lots of napkins to donate.  As I mentioned before, you are more than welcome to bake at the soup kitchen if you like.

I will tell you more about the food as soon as I know more.

Thanks so much for volunteering your valuable time. I will do my best to make this event successful for us.
