10 The The McConstables cook up a storm in Palmerston By Theresa Kuilboer Palmerston Police exchanged their batons and guns for eggflips and tongs as they took part in this years McHappy Day charity fundraiser. Fourteen members from the Palmerston Police Station took turns at flipping patties, pouring shakes and cooking fries as they helped raise money for Ronald McDonald Charities. Palmerston Police were invited to be VIP crew members for McHappy Day on 10 May, so, being the community-spirited folks they are they all readily agreed to help out at Palmerston McDonalds. The morning shift started at 10am (after a hearty breakfast of egg and bacon muffins, no doubt). There was Steve Hazell on chips, Deb Fisher on drive-through, Rebecca Rapper on register, Paul Carmody on the hot plate and Mark Kime as floater. When the afternoon shift rocked up at 3.30pm they were all keen to have a go and prove their burgers were better than the morning shifts. So with Paul Maccioni on the front counter, Matt Cryton on drive-through, Brad Currie and John Connor on burgers, Kim Bell on chips and John Connors daughter making sundaes, the PM crew cooked up a storm. In the end, everyone had a great time and they helped raise $2400 for charity. Well done guys and gals! 10 The One big McHappy family
