Very Special Night at Bowmore! May 5, 2010

Good evening everyone,

Bowmore Public School Teachers and Staff and Bowmore School Council, cordially invite you to Bowmore's upcoming Living & Learning Open House and Connection Expo.

We are so grateful to Paul Kittmer, a parent a Bowmore who designed the poster for us. Enormous thanks Paul!

We hope you, your families and neighbours will join us at some point during that evening. The cafe will be selling cheese pizza slices, fruit and milk, and for dessert you can enjoy a delicious bounty from the bake sale.

If weather permits, there will be a bouncy caste in the school yard; and if logistics pan out, the Fire Dept will be there with their truck for the kids' enjoyment. There will be many prizes and raffles, and most important many opportunities to enjoy a night at Bowmore with your family and make new friends.

If you would like to get involved with the bake sale, the cafe, the expo, the open house, or other school council duties, please reply to this email and we'll put you in touch with the coordinators in charge.

Thanks for your ongoing support!

We look forward to seeing you at Bowmore on Wed May 5th :-)
