Bunning’s sausage sizzle

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 event.

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.
