Fundraiser Pickup THURSDAY

Hi all,

Our Pastry Puffin/Butterbraid fundraiser will be available for pickup this THURSDAY, SEPT. 21 from 2:10-3:00pm in the music wing (door P).  Three items of note for you regarding that…

1.We are in need of 4 volunteers to assist fundraiser organization and pickup.  Timeframe is this Thursday from 12:00pm-3:30pm.  If you are available to help, please contact Lynn Weston (plmweston@comcast.net).  Thanks in advance for your help!

2. Please pickup these items between 2:10-3:00pm.  Students can get them immediately after school, or parents/neighbors/family/friends can get them after school until 3:00pm.

3. These are frozen items that either need to be delivered immediately or placed in a freezer right away.  The butterbraids especially need to be placed in a freezer otherwise the dough will begin to thaw and rise.

Thanks!

David
