Fun Fair 2011 – Rain and Shine

Thank you to everyone who came to this past Saturday’s Fun Fair! It was very well-attended, in spite of the rain that poured down for nearly half of it. Even a bit of thunder and lightning didn’t keep the Davisville community away.

A big thank you to the many dedicated volunteers who organized and set up the Fun Fair, and who moved fast to move things inside as the rain turned into a thunder storm.

We had a great time at the magic shows, chowing down at the bake sale, and shopping for deals at the silent auction and rummage sale. The gym was a busy place, with face painting, button-making, portraits and more.

And if you happened to be in the gym when our MP Carolyn Bennett and City Councillor Josh Matlow visited, you were treated to the two of them singing “You Are My Sunshine” in an effort to improve the weather. (And it worked! 😉 )

Once the weather cooperated, the bouncy castle, dunk tank, obstacle course and slides were packed, with steady lineups right past the end of the Fun Fair.

With the rain and shine, we had a really fun time!

Fun Fair – Almost Here!

Only two more days until the Fun Fair!

The Fun Fair happens rain or shine. (The organizers are a clever bunch and have a “Plan B” in case of rain).

Every year the Bake Sale is a big hit. If you’ve been busy baking, great! Please bring your baked goods (nut free please!) to school on Friday or drop by during setup time Saturday morning (9:00 to 11:00 AM) and bring them directly to the Bake Sale table.

Have you checked out the 2011 Silent Auction Catalogue yet? Remember, you can use the form here to pre-bid on items in the catalogue until tomorrow (June 3) at 6:00 PM. And remember, if you bid on an item and won’t be at the Fun Fair, please have someone pay for your items by 3:15 at the Fun Fair. (Payment by cash or cheque please).

See you Saturday!

Fun Fair Meeting: Wednesday, May 11

The Fun Fair is just over 3 weeks away (June 4)! How can you make it a great day for all?

  • Help with setup, which starts at 9:00 AM, and your work is done by the time the fun starts…
  • A little help goes a long way in dealing with last-minute organizing needs…
  • Contributing an hour of work during the Fun Fair makes lighter work for all…

Every year, our kids have a great time at the Fun Fair. To make this happen, the organizing committee relies on volunteerspeople just like you! Thank you!
