The President and Committee extend a
heartfelt thanks to all of those who assisted at the sausage sizzle held at
Bunning’s Marion, on Sunday 2nd July. A
grand total bottom line profit of $1434.10 was made - more than three times as
much as at Coles Glenelg. The Society
sincerely thanks all of those who lent a hand, before, after and during the
Happy BBQ volunteers
An except from Sue’s Bunnings BBQReport
from 2/7/17. The bottom line is a profit of $1434.10.
We were very fortunate with the weather so
that we probably sold maximum amount of sausages. GHS members filled the 2
hourly rosters for the entire day 8.30-4.30 (5people per shift)
The day went smoothly. We ended up with 8
packs (round 15kg) frozen ready for next
BBQ. The drinks were profitable. There was the correct amount of sauce and we
erred on the side of caution with onions. The cost of extra onions buying from
Aldi to meet demand was minimal and no extra for bread. A very satisfactory day.
The DAVID ROCHE Foundation tour. www.rochefoundation.com.au/ The David Roche
Foundation collection is one of the greatest decorative arts collections in a
private institution in Australia. This exhibition is exceptional and not to be
missed. It is to David Roche’s credit and love of South Australia that a
collect of this calibre remains here. Enjoy a relaxing coffee and homemade
biscuits in comfort, whilst hearing about the background to the Foundation then
enjoy the guided tour. After the tour walk to the Old Lion Hotel to discuss the
experience over some refreshments (optional).
