Market Day enjoyed a good year, with total monies raised of $2690.94 for 1998-99. And this with less than a 25% participation rate! Just think of the possibilities if we could raise that rate! To make things more interesting for 1999-2000, we are going to have an "event" or give-a-way of some sort each month to inspire you to participate in the Market Day program. Our Sept. motivator is that Mr. Hardin has agreed to be duct taped to the football scoreboard in Oct., if we can get 85 Market Day orders in Sept. What a show of support! In Oct. for every $10 you order, a free B.U. Rockets zipper pull will be yours. (Up to 5 pulls per family-compliments of PTO.) And in Nov., the elementary pie fundraiser will be through Market Day, with profits going towards the principals fund that pays for student assemblies and programs. Dex. will geature a drawing for a free roast- for every roast you order, you name will be entered into the drawing. We will even be treating our volunteers that come to help on pick-up day with complimentary food treats and occasional coupons for money off your order. Volunteers help unload the truck, set food out for pick-up, and help our customers fill their orders....all in a fun and friendly enviroment! If you'd like to sign up to be a Market Day volunteer, please contact Janie Heston, our Market Day chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org Order Market Day online from our PTO website or at http://www.marketday.com
Many will be shocked to find
When the Day of Judgement nears
That there's a special place in
Heaven set aside for volunteers.
Furnished with big recliners,
Satin couches and footstools-
Where there's no committee chair,
No group leaders for carpools.
Telephone list will be outlawed,
But a finger snap will bring
Cool drinks and gourmet dinners,
And rare treats fit for a king.
You ask, who's serving the privileged few
And work for all they're worth?
Why, those who reaped the benefits
And not once volunteered on earth.
