Youth Exchange Welcome Home Dinner.

The 2017 book sale is fast approaching and it is time to start preparing!
This year the book sale has been postponed by a couple of weeks from the usual timing in late March to Friday 7 (9am to 5pm), Saturday 8 (9am to 5pm) and Sunday 11 (11am to 2pm) of April.
This is due to the fact that some of our key players will be overseas in February/March (namely me - Andrew) and April/May.
In order to make it easier on our backs, knees, hips, etc, we are ditching the conventional fruit boxes (which are also extremely difficult to source) and are moving to the Lifeline size cardboard box which is about 2/3 the size of the fruit box and will hence will limit the total lifting weight to around 10kg. This is why Lifeline went to this style & size of box in order to comply with OH&S requirements for their ever aging members!
These boxes come flat packed & are taped together as required. At the end of the book sale the tape will be cut & the box flat packed for storage. (See photo on right showing these boxes - note the 10Kg written on the side of the box in the foreground!).
The Church has agreed to let us run the book sale on the Sunday from 11am to 2pm when we will start the usual pack up routine.
This will provide an extra 3 hours on the Saturday and 3 hours on the Sunday, ie a total of 6 extra selling hours.
The 2016 book sale raised around $14,000 and we are aiming to better this in 2017.
To do this, we need help from ALL club members during the book sort days -
Saturday 25 February
Saturday 18 March
Tuesday 4 April
and during the sale itself from - Wednesday 5 to Sunday 9 April
