… for a few days.
I’m off on my fundraising endurance motorcycle ride tomorrow morning and will be busy riding around the North Island for Aran Animal Rescue until Tuesday next week.
During this time I’m not able to attend to my grapevine duties.
If you want to show your support for what the Grapevine has done for you, then please consider making a small donation to this worthwhile cause. – I’m not asking that you give much, perhaps just a gold coin donation??
Normal service will resume on Tuesday.
Thanks, your Grapevine administrator,
Does anyone have any good bluetooth speakers or ones you can plug your phone into? I only have a UE Boom and JB flip speaker that isn’t loud enough.
It would be to use at the dinner this Saturday at the Ahuroa School and Hall fundraiser horse trek. Will be undercover in woolshed.
Please email me Rachaeljenks@gmail.com or 0275585286
Happy New Year to everybody in the Ahuroa Community
The Ahuroa Community Hall and School Fundraiser is coming up on the weekend of the 24th and 25th February – an organised horse trek through several local privately owned farms. Horsey types ( 😊 ) from all over the north are apparently pretty excited!
This is a great opportunity to raise some funds for special upcoming projects for the hall and school. The bonus is that we don’t need a huge amount of people power to make it happen (yay), but we DO need food donations (and a little help in the kitchen) to make it work, as we will be feeding approximately 40-50 people x 4 meals.
The more food we are able to get donated, the less it will cost to run, so I’m hoping that a whole lot of our Ahuroa community will get behind this and donate generously.
We are looking at a range of food to help put on a continental breakfast, filled rolls and baking for lunch, and a spit roast and buffet style dinner – a comprehensive list is below.
A donation could be as simple as a New World Gift Card, putting a couple of cans of food in your letterbox, donating some excess cucumbers from your garden, or as complicated as making a yummy chocolate brownie – so not too much effort required at all, and every bit will be appreciated.
Here’s the list of items we would love to have donated:
