Sausage-turning, not pork-barrelling at this Election Day Moree fundraiser

From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, there are 194 nations in the world. 

Of these, Economist last year reported that just 19 countries are still ‘full democracies’.

On Saturday, March 23 Moree residents will enjoy that democratic freedom and the right to elect their leaders when they go to polling booths to vote for the NSW Parliament. 

To celebrate this rare fortune, Moree Secondary College P&C will provide access to Democracy Sausages, quality local products to match the standard of candidates on the ballot papers.

As voters approach the warm security of cardboard polling booths and grasp the pencil stub to make their mark, they should not be distracted by the pleasant waft of cooked onions filtering through the precinct. 

There will be plenty for all when the barbecue fires up in front of the MSC multi-purpose building on Frome Street from 8am until 11am on polling day.

Democracy Sausages will be available at the Moree Secondary College multi-purpose building on Frome Street on polling day, Saturday, March 23 as part of a fundraiser for MSC P&C.

Organisers say that whether voters arrive with a bitter taste of defeat or salty tears of disappointment, Democracy Sausages are sure to provide a sweet feeling of optimism for the future of the nation.

Moree Secondary College P&C president Kelly James encourages voters to buy a sausage to support on-going college promotions.

“The latest project plans to engage the local business,” Ms James said.

“Simply Print has installed a window wrap on a currently vacant Balo Street shop front, promoting Education Excellence in Moree. 

“This will not only improve the outlook in the main street, but also inform local families of the quality education available locally,” she said.

The polling day barbecue fundraiser precedes a pizza and pasta day at Moree Secondary College on Friday, March 29 – just one of the many fundraisers planned for the school in 2019.

Money raised will fund an excursion to Europe in July, 2020.

Students will embark on an exciting journey through the ancient cities of Greece and Italy, departing Australia on July 3 next year and touching down in Athens the following day.

Teaching staff Mr Auld, Mrs Barton, Mrs Woods and Miss Lee will accompany the students.

The excursion includes a tour through Sparta, on the banks of the Eurotas River in Laconia, in south-eastern Peloponnese.

In order for the students to take part in this amazing experience, some fundraising will take place throughout 2019, and the first term in 2020.

To launch the fundraising campaign, Year 11 and Year 12 hospitality classes will hold the Pizza and Pasta Day later this month.
