Renmark Apex Donates $285 to Renmark North Primary School

On the 18th of November 2011, the Apex Club of Renmark cooked hot chips and donuts for the thousands of people who attended the Renmark North Primary Schools annual continental. The chip cooker was falt out for nearly 3 hours, with 6 members kept busy all night cooking and serving. The event was a great welcome to the club for Kevin Van Amstel, and he learnt how to use the chip cooker under pressure.

Whilst the donuts didn’t pan out so well, the chips were a massive hit.

From the profit of the night, the Apex Club donated $285 to the School.

Catering Van = 91% complete

The re-building of the catering van is moving along steadily with the stainless bench tops now secured to the bench frames and the floor and pantry are complete.

The main things remaining are the exhaust fan, wheels & tyres, electrics, water, fitting the cooking equipment.

Then it will need painting and signage and it will be nearly ready to roll by early 2012.

As Nathan says, the last 10% is the hardest and longest part of the job…..
