The 2004 season has effectively started for the Jets, with fund-raising efforts continuing all the way through the summer. Newtown's merchandise sales at the various inner western street festivals have been very useful earners, as well as being tremendous public relations exercises for the club. It all starts again this Sunday, 21 September, with the annual Marrickville Festival. This is of course in our heartland support area, with a crowd in excess of 45,000 expected to attend the day-long Festival.
The details are:
Date - Sunday, 21 September 2003, 11.00am to 5.00pm. Where - Marrickville Road between Victoria and Illawarra Roads, Marrickville. The Newtown RLFC merchandise stall will be located between Silver Street and Garners Avenue. This is a very labour intensive exercise for the club, and we need all the helpers we can get. If you can spare a couple of hours to work at the stall, it will be really appreciated. There is only a very small number of people who keep this club going, and they desperately need some backup to help cover all the upcoming Festivals. Please contact Annie Mustow on 95500999 or 0407019410 to offer your help this coming Sunday.
