Another Successful Sausage Sizzle!

We held another successful fundraising sausage sizzle at Mitre 10, Nuriootpa last Saturday.

As we do a couple of times annually, our members set up and staffed the sausage sizzle with support from Foodland that supplies us with a quantity of sausages and Mitre 10 that provides the barbecue, tables, accessories, and the location outside their entry and exit doors.

It's an excellent spot to attract attention from the many customers who visit Mitre 10 on a Saturday.

After we've been in situ for an hour or so, the hunger-inflicting smell of cooked sausages drifts through the air attracting shoppers and even staff from nearby businesses. One such lady told us she could smell the food and couldn't wait for her mid-morning break to leave her office and buy one of our sausages. They're that good!

Our rolls with bacon, egg and onions are popular in the earlier hours of the day when people stop to have a snack for breakfast. Later, our sausages and onion on a piece of bread and a can of soft drink are more popular.

Some people who pass by simply make a donation. We appreciate very much those who support the RSL and enjoy the opportunity to get out and meet the locals, many of whom we already know.
