Tastes of Spring!

(images and text from Glenorie/Galston Community News, August 2012)

I'd love to see you out at the Spring Fair, last year's event was so much fun!  There are ride wristbands for $30 each giving the kids unlimited rides ALL DAY on almost all the attractions, including Gladiator Duel, shown at the top.  Last year's mini jeeps and giant slide were a huge hit for my kids.  There was delicious food, cakes, coffee, chocolate fountain, fairy floss and lots more.

The fair is the major fundraiser for Northholm Grammar School, and this year the funds raised are earmarked for an outdoor barbeque area.  One of the nice things the school does is involve the dads in running a monthly bbq lunch, instead of the usual canteen.  The kids just love it, all the way from Yr 3 -12, and it's a nice break for the usual canteen mums.  This facility will benefit all the kids AND the dads too!

Stampin' Up! have donated a MASSIVE box of wonderful (retired) products, that I have packed into multiple bundles of goodness each valued at well over $300.  There will be one on my stall and four more around the event for different fundraisers. I'll also have my red bushfire brigade hat money box to collect a gold coin donation for Dural Bush Fire Brigade  - take a card from the donation box, pop your coin in the hat.  You get a bargain card, the Brigade gets much needed funds for the volunteers to put towards their great work for the community.

So, come on out for a Saturday drive.  Northholm is at Arcadia, and can be reached from Old Northern Road through either Middle Dural (take the Wylds Rd turnoff towards Arcadia) or Galston Village (past Swane's Nursery on Galston Rd, and past Fagan Park on Arcadia Rd).  If you're on the north side of Sydney, you can drive the scenic Galston Gorge route from Hornsby.  It's also the very FIRST day of the new Annual Catalogue, and the gorgeous Holiday Catalogue (no longer a mini!), so you'll be able to get your copy and even place an order!
