May 22, 2014Introductory NotesFirst off, thank you all for volunteering!!!Without you we could not see the great results of all that we have been planning for in the past couple of months. Its a lot of work but so worth it, when we see the smiles on the faces of the children and how excited the kids at FMPS and the surrounding neighbourhood get when they hear the Mayfair is coming!Why are we having this meeting?We are doing this for the first time in this format because Saturday mornings became so hectic with our guests and volunteers all descending on the Check In Registration Table at the same time. We wanted a more informal, less stressful time, to be able to communicate what we would like to see. Agenda for the EveningSome Basic Guidelines

There will be two adults at each station.Each ticket station will be selling: carnival tickets for all of our events, raffle tickets and barbeque tickets. Water will also be sold at each of these stations.There will also be maps as well as stage schedules of what is happening at different times during the day.Cash will also be required to purchase plants or baked goods. Everything else will be done by tickets.

MapsYou can find the maps on our website.Question PeriodQ. If I want to work with my friends can I do that?Let the volunteer coordinator know what your preferences are and we will try and make sure that you are grouped close together.How are prizes done?Our guests will get a prize card (looks like a Subways card). When they win or participate in an event, the card gets a stamp. The guests take these cards over to the prize booth and get to choose a toy. Then their card gets punched. (i.e. a child has 8 stamps but only uses 4 stamps. You punch holes in 4 and leave the remaining for the next time they come to the booth.Question PeriodQ. What are the food options that we have available?There will be burgers (halal and beef), sausages (Bratwurst, Hot Italian), jumbo hot dogs, kiddie sized hot dogs, chips and drinks at the barbeque. There will be cotton candy, popcorn, ring pops for sale at the Candy Booth. There will be baked goods sold inside at the Bake Sale. There will be meat pies and cheese pies sold beside the BBQ by the SNMC. Water will also be available for sale at the ticket booths. Coffee and tea will be sold beside the bake table.19Question PeriodHow does the raffle work?Raffle tickets can be purchased for $2.00 each or 6 for $10.00. Guests need to fill out the raffle tickets and put a ticket in the bag corresponding to the prize that they would like to win. For example, if I would like to win the $200 of Bayshore dollars, I would fill out a raffle ticket and put it into the bag with the #9 on it since this is prize #9. Guests are welcome to put more than one ticket in a bag for more chances to win.20Question PeriodQ. Where do I need to spend cash?The ticket booths will have barbeque tickets, carnival game tickets and raffle tickets for sale. The bake sale and the plant sale and the book sale all take cash. Everything else is done by tickets.
