Nursery Santa Party Raffle Winners

Yesterday was a big day for the children, parents and mentors of the nursery. Santa arrived to Ballinteer St Johns. Over the course of the morning about 400 children visited Santa’s Grotto. After their visit it was up to the function room for some fun and games, face painting, tea/coffee and snacks (thanks to all the parents who brought loads of cakes, buns etc). We want to thank all the volunteers who gave their time on Friday to setup the two grottos and then on Saturday to help with the smooth running of the event. We finished off with the customary raffle. The luck winners were:

1st: Hamper Luca O’Neill

2nd: Hamper Mark MacEnnis

3rd: Susan O’Keeffe Unicorn

4th: Sarah O’Connell Cuddly Cat

Volunteers Needed May Festival Sat 29th April

The annual May Festival is on Saturday 29th April from 1-30pm to 5-00pm in Marley Park and the club car park. The event is for the U6 to U12 kids. We need volunteers from across the club, teams, mentors and parents to help us on the day. What we are looking for is the following:
  • We have coordinators assigned to each event in Marley Park. We need volunteers to assist them with the kids through each event.
  • In the car park we have an overall coordinator again it is to assist that person through the afternoon.
  • We have two adults assigned to take the money for the burgers. We need to give them a rest at some stage, would be great to get a couple of volunteers for this.
  • Selling tickets for the raffle, helping with the tea/coffee and soft drinks stall.
Note you don’t have to cover the full 4 hours of the event. If we got an hour from a number of people that would be great. It means we can rotate people and give helpers a break.
Thanks in advance we really need as many volunteers as possible. Please send email with names to Pat Meegan at patmeegan@hotmail.com or to Keith O’Meara at keithomeara1@gmail.com.
