The Patton Carnival Needs Your Help!
The Patton Carnival is just around the corner on May 3rd, from 2:30pm to
7pm, rain or shine! This is one event that children from all over the
District look forward to every year. It is also the main fundraiser for
the Patton PTO and provides for teacher grants, technology improvements,
assemblies and other educational enrichment programs that benefit all
We really, really need volunteers for the Carnival more than ever this
year! Our long-time carnival game vendor cannot help us due to his own
serious medical problems and the death of his son, who was his right hand
man. Efforts to secure another vendor who brought their own workers proved
unsuccessful. The Carnival company we are going with is only providing two
workers to staff two games that are not on this list. So, we have to staff
the rest of the games ourselves and that's why we need more volunteers. We
have a lot of new games this year -- the dunk tank is back as well as a
new silly string arena.
We ask you to please volunteer for more than one shift if you can. Here is
the Sign Up Genius Link.
We also are in need of snack shack food donations and candy walk food
donations, which you can sign up for with this link.
Thank you so much for your willingness to help out and to make this a
great event for our kids! Thank you too for your raffle basket donations
-- wait until you see the amazing baskets we have this year! Feel free to
contact me if you have any questions.
