Good evening all,

As you are all aware, we are hosting the annual Scandinavian Christmas Market at Penrose Sunday the 3rd of November (9.30am to 5pm) We expect a large turnout and we need helpers throughout the day to make this a success.

Things that we need help with is:
*taking gold coin donations at the door
*managing the floor in the hall ie flow, how many more people to let in etc
*managing the exit
*managing the hot dog stall

If any members of the club/friends of members are free to come for just 2 hours during the day to help out that would be amazing. And as we know, many hands make light work so please contact me direct on president@danishsociety.org.nz or 021 688 654 to let me know what you would like to help with.

Thanks in advance,
Jacob Thuesen
President
