We need your help!

9 February 2018

The 2018 Glennie Fair is getting closer now, just one month to go, with Sunday 4 March promising to be a great day!

Our selected charity to pledge funds to this year is “Dolly’s Dream Foundation”, a very worthwhile and relevant foundation to support.

Additionally, the Glennie Fair profits will assist the P & F in making our first of five $50,000 pledges to the School Foundation for the new Sports Centre, being constructed this year.

The success of the Glennie Fair depends on the generosity of the Glennie Community and we need your help.

  1. If you or a friend or a family member have a fence facing a busy road, please grab a corflute sign from the GOSS and put it up for a month.
  2. Like the Glennie Fair facebook posts and share them far and wide!
  3. Volunteer to help out on your year level stall. Please contact the stall convenors in your year level and put your name down for a stint on the day – as little or as much as you can fit in will be great.
  4. We need a band of about 25 set up and pack up volunteers. We need your help on Saturday morning March 3 and at end of Fair on March 4. Lunch is provided on Saturday and there will be a BBQ and refreshments on Sunday night. Just email us back to put your name down – a bit of fun and good way to be involved.
