Fishcake Fundraiser

We are very pleased to announce that we are doing a Fishcake Fundraiser this year – it has been a while since we have been able to do this due to allergies in the school.

The Fishcakes are made by Furlong Foods in Plate Cove, Bonavista, NL and pre-packaged in 2 lb. bags (approximately 14 fishcakes per bag). You have a choice between fishcakes with onions and those without onions. These fishcakes are nutritious and make a tasty meal. They are made with a combination of fresh and salt codfish, potato, milk, wheat flour, eggs, savory, salt and pepper.

The fishcakes cost $7.00 per bag. We do not want students going door to door. Instead we ask that you sell to your family, friends and co-workers. All orders must be pre-paid before they can be collected.

All orders are due no later than Thursday, March 30th. The fishcakes will be delivered to the school on Wednesday, April 5th in the afternoon. When you come to collect your complete orders, we will give you your order form and initial it when you have received the fishcakes.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will support the purchase of Literacy and technology resources.  We thank you in advance for your support!
