Trivia Night Wrap up from Belinda Evans  


Thanks to all those who attended, assisted, donated and contributed towards making the Trivia Night a success..

I am sure you will all agree that All Saints was the perfect venue.

Congratulations to Arkela's Winning Team who were head to head with "The Barnes" team right up to the last round.

We have plans for making it bigger and better next year!

We will have more spot prizes, more parent and youth involvement.  We plan to reduce the number of questions too, so a bit more socialising can take place.

We really encourage you to come along in 2014 and make it a fantastic family occasion and night out.  The Kids room was very popular and gave parents a night out !

This night is an excellent chance to acknowledge our Leaders and for parents to get to know one another.

Revenue generated from the night which at first count is over $1700.00....goes towards hall upkeep (great to be able to go out and buy paint knowing that funds are available etc ) and future purchase of Q Store supplies and use towards our hall project fund.

Parent Helpers     


Each week a family will be rostered on as Parent Helper.  Their role is to assist with activities, help with cleaning up the mess Arlene makes, tidying, setting up and pack up and most importantly to join in with the activities and have fun with the Cubs.


We have a roster of parent helpers, listed on our term program.




Good night and good hunting!
