At the A & P Show in 2019, we are having the Cheer Leading Squad - "Cheer Dynamix 2 Cool" throughout the weekend doing a Display and also fund raising for their trip to Dallas USA.

These talented kids are travelling to Dallas at the end of February 2019 to compete in one of the largest competitions in the world, NCA.

As a Fund Raiser, the parents and trainers of this Squad are running a Café out of Rose Cottage during the A & P Show. 

They will be selling Tea, Coffee, Scones, Cakes and other Morning & Afternoon Tea delights. 
All proceeds to go towards the Squad going to Dallas to represent New Zealand.

This is a great cause and we at the Franklin A & P Society are getting behind them to assist them in this venture.
