Bring and Buy

Some of the 10 Purple girls at our class Bring and Buy fundraising day today. We had it at Roberta's house in town, and over 25 girls came, some with their parents and families, to raise money for our Miss Marianville contestant (Eileen, sitting in the front, on the right). We made over K350 today, including K60 from Mr Mala's chook raffles, so we were pretty happy with how it all went, although next time we hope to get all 45 girls there. It was fun to catch up with the girls in a more informal setting, and to meet some more of their parents and families.

Mums and daughters buying up big

Pia helped me figure out how to say 'thanks for coming and for all your hard work, and I'm really pleased to meet you all' in pidgin, so I got a big cheer for being able to do that! And Mrs Norrie took me with her down to Koki market, down the road, so I got to buy my kulau myself, and catch a PMV back!! Very exciting. A busy but fun day. And the best bit of all - coming home to find that OUR TELEPHONE IS WORKING AGAIN!!!! YAY!!!!!! Posted by Hello
