PAC Lemonade Stand Volunteers needed for Saturday, September 14

Hello,

With a very warm forecast for this weekend, PAC will be hosting a Lemonade Stand  on Saturday, September 14 from 9:30am – 6:30pm on the seawall next to the Spruce Harbour Marina. This is a fun way to spend time with your family and friends while raising money for our school.

PAC has hosted this fundraiser for many years with great success, typically raising between $350 – $500 per day. Funds raised at this event and with other PAC fundraising initiatives will support many activities not funded by the Vancouver School Board such as: field trips, school-wide performances and science workshops, iin-class activities, sports equipment, team jerseys, Chocolate Lily and Red Cedar book clubs and additional books for our library (and much more!)

If you’d like to be a part of this event, we will need families to sell lemonade for 1.5 hour shifts beginning 9:30am on Saturday, September 14. Families are welcome to take a shift together. To sign up, please go to our online Lemonade Stand Volunteer Sign Up Sheet.

* Please note we are only having one location this time  – the “Spruce Harbour Marina location” and only on one day – Saturday, September 14.
Thanks for your support!
