A big thank you to Saxby soft drinks for the donation of a two door refrigerator to the Lansdowne Community Hall. It will be put to very good use.
The managers of the Lansdowne Community Hall will be holding a garage sale on election day, December 4 in the hall. Donations of saleable items would be appreciated.
Unless things change before the garage sale, COVID rules and regulations will apply. You must be double vaccinated, you must sign in, you must follow all the present COVID rules.
Come along and purchase breakfast or lunch from the hall barbecue from 8am until 1.30pm. Have a browse over the tables which will be filled with everything from books, clothes, crockery, and a lot of other items as well as freshly made home baked goodies on the cake stall.
Lansdowne Public School has a great raffle with 18 amazing prizes up for grabs. This is one of their annual fundraising activities.
Tickets can be purchased at the local Lansdowne post office and are only one dollar per ticket. The raffle will be drawn at the school presentation day on December 8.
The school's other annual event to raise funds for the school is on the last day of school for the year on December 16. This event is their Colour Fun Run.
For this event, the children need people to sponsor them. They have raised a lot of money in the past but this year it is looking a bit glum.
All monies raised will be used to purchase items that assist teachers to aid with the education of the students. Some of these aids can be very costly.
If any one in the community would like to assist the school's fundraising efforts either by purchasing tickets in the raffle or sponsoring the children in the Colour Fun Run, please phone the school on 6556 7147 during school hours.
