 This is what we did this year!  Thanks to all who volunteered and  the 500 people who came to enjoy the fun & we look forward to seeing you all again in 2013!  

 Attention All Local PTA Units

Founders Day Carnival – February 12, 2012


Location:            Central High School Field House

Time:                   Set-up = 10am – 12pm

                              Open = 12pm – 4pm

                              Cleanup = 4pm – 6pm

Admission:   Free & every person who enters will receive one ticket for a chance to win a door prize!  

                        Tickets will be available for purchase – 25 cents each and can be used for games, craft table, inflatables or concessions.

Inflatables:  4 tickets/bounce or all-day wristband = $4

Raffle:             General raffle tickets will be available at November’s Council meeting.  Everyone is asked to take 50 to sell; please return any unsold tickets to Council so that we may sell them during the event.  $750 in cash will again be the prizes for these tickets. 

Silent Auction:   We will be looking to the community to provide donations for this fundraising auction.  We will also be asking each local unit to either donate a basket or $50.  If you or someone you know has a business that would like to donate to this auction, please contact Heather Justham at 414-750-1285 or justham@wi.rr.com.

Cake Auction/Competition:     New this year!  We are asking the community, local units, anyone interested to bake a cake, bring it to Carnival and we will silent auction them off.  The entry with the highest bid will be the winner of a gift certificate (yet to be specified).  In the event that there is a tie we will put the names of those highest bidders into a hat and choose randomly.

Advertising:    We are still missing signs from last year’s event, if you have any signs please get them to Laura so that we may change the dates.  We will have three flyers go home through all of the elementary schools beginning in January.  We will also be distributing them electronically and asking that you include us in your newsletters and websites.

Volunteers:      This is a huge event and we need many hands to make this event more fun for the children than last year’s!  We are asking each of the elementary schools to either send a game with enough volunteers to man it for the four hours or send enough volunteers who would be available for set up/open/clean up (8 hours).  Intermediate schools are being asked to send volunteers to supervise the inflatables and man the ticket sales from 12pm – 4pm (about 5 per two hour shift).  High schools are being asked again to run concessions.  If you should have any questions about volunteers, please contact Gena Kraemer – 414-545-4005 or kraemerfamily93@aol.com.  I am not putting exact numbers on any of these any volunteers you can send will be greatly appreciated.  I will have more specific information coming out in the months to come—watch the newsletters & your email!
