Last Minute Call for Dickens Help:
1. Bake Sale Items
Families N - Z, you are on! We are looking for help with our bake sale table….either individually wrapped snacks or cookie platters/cakes/pies to sell as a whole. Really, we would love donations from our other families, too, if you are feeling like baking for us! The Bake Sale Table is where we can make some real money for PSST next Saturday. Let's keep our craft fair shoppers happy & well fed! PS: we do need your ingredients list, just like we ask for at the shows, to put in our notebook. Please mark your item, if it contains nuts. Please bring in your items by 10 a.m. on Saturday morning. We will be there from 8 a.m. on, if you want to come earlier. THANK YOU!!!
2. Need a Pickup Truck to transport rental tables
We are looking for a pickup truck & driver to help with either table PICK-UPS on Friday late afternoon and/or table RETURNS on Saturday at about 4pm to Peterson's Party Center. We already have one truck, we realized, however, we need a second. Please contact Diane Amerault or Laurie Doherty if you can help us. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Need one more large percolator
Do you own a large coffee maker that we could borrow for the day Saturday? 45 or 60 cup. We have 2 percolators, just need one more. Please contact Suzy Axelson @ suzyaxelson@verizon (aka the Coffee Lady) if you can share your coffee maker. I will take good care of it, I promise.
4. Refreshment Table Helpers - bring your festive hat!
If you are working at the refreshment table, don't forget to bring your festive hat. Hats are actually required by the Board of Health, and we hoped to "take it up a notch" like we do in Drama, with fun holiday hats. Hohoho!
If you haven't offered to volunteer yet, and suddenly find that you are able to help us out next Saturday, please contact Christine Hylan directly email@example.com. We all understand, we are all parents, and things change from day to day. We hope you can join us for a fun, festive day that is our biggest fundraiser of the year.
6. Come and shop!
This craft fair will host 50 vendors -- a selling a large variety of holiday gift items, for every age. This is the perfect place to finish (or start, as it will be in my case!) your holiday shopping. Come get into the holiday spirit! There will also be performances throughout the day in the WEE PAC from areas dance studios, and on Main Street by the Shakespeare Club and the RMHS Chorus.
Dickens Meeting Now will take place at RMHS Drama Room, Wed., 7 p.m.
Just wanted to let you all know that we've had a change in venue for tomorrow night's (Wednesday's) Final Dickens Meeting. It will now take place in Mrs. Cunha's Drama Room. The time remains the same, 7 p.m. Please come join us, if you'd like to hear the plans for the Faire on Saturday, Dec. 14th or would like to help out. If you can't make the meeting, you can still help out, of course, but we've love to have you join us tomorrow night. Diane Amerault and Christine Hylan are our event co-coordinators. Please contact them directly with questions, if you have them. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Winter User Fees
A gentle reminder that Winter Season User Fees are due by Monday, Dec. 9th. You can pay by check (made payable to the Town of Reading) or online, just like you did for Legally Blonde.
Festival of Trees, this weekend
Whitney Perkins is creating a wonderful tree for PSST to display at the Festival of Trees this coming weekend at Parker. The theme/name of tree is "Curtain Call" and is a 'celebration of great shows' - has red velvet curtains and 'playbill' ornaments, topped off by the drama club comedy/tragedy logo. You can buy chances to win this tree for your very own. It is a fundraiser for the Reading Educational Foundation. http://reading.patch.com/groups/editors-picks/p/festival-of-trees-at-parker-middle-school. PSST is so lucky to have such talent amongst our parent group -- thank you, Whitney!! Our RMHS Chorus will be performing during the event, as well
