Dear Parents and friends of Homebush Boys,

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank every one of you who donated food or money towards the four Citizenship Ceremonies in 2012/13.  We received delicious home-made slices, cookies, cakes and muffins, fabulous fruit platters, unbelievably scrumptious savouries and enough money to buy all the extras to cater for these events.  And to those of you who purchased an item of food then please let me say that your selections were terrific and full of variety.  Being an event to serve ‘finger food’ it made it easy for serving up with your varied selection of donations.
