Thank You from the Pumpkin Night Committee

posted Mar 8, 2017, 11:58 AM by Reception @TMCS

Our team extend a HUGE thank you to all those who were able to participate, help before and on the day with our annual Pumpkin Night event.  This is an iconic event not just for our school but the wider community.  We hope you and your families enjoyed yourselves, it is always a lovely evening especially when the weather plays ball.  As with any fundraiser, these events are heavily reliant on parental support and input and we offer our heartfelt thanks to you all.

On that note we do have a few sponsors, assistance providers to thank, without these organisations Pumpkin Night would be a difficult event to run:

Trenwith band, Tamahere Lions, Regal Haulage, Hillcrest New World, Fun warehouse, Coffee Cab, Darcy Perry for the PA system, Woolston’s for the Caravan and Waffles, Fire Brigade (Hamilton), Bruntwood Nurseries for the use of their Pumpkin weighing scales, the Letcher Family for the use of their bach as a prize, St Peters School, Cambridge Real Estate and the Cancer Society for their gazebos, Phillipa Bennyworth from ASB Bank.

Also a big thank you to

o   everyone that donated items/prizes,

o   everyone that made soup, fudge, lolly necklaces, cakes and cupcakes,

o   everyone that helped set up/pack down on Saturday &Sunday

o   Our teachers and class reps for organising their stalls and everyone that helped man them

o   The creative team on hall design & setup

o   The judges of the Pumpkin creations

o   Kids for all their creations and their happy faces!

And a special thanks to Allan Wickens, and the Pumpkin Night committee for all their hard work (Karla Ward, Sharlene Woolston, Shona Fraser, Bec Golud, Annette Howard, Lee Boyd, Shelley Baker and Kath Unternahrer)  As special thanks goes to Shona Fraser for her tireless efforts and extra commitment over the weeks prior to Pumpkin Night 2017, just amazing!!
