Finally, The Fourth Annual Bake Sale Success 

Thank you to all the bakers and the people who staffed the table this past Sunday at the bake sale. The bake sale was a huge success and we raised $1,179 for the club. A big shout out to an “anonymous” donor who handed over a considerable sum without as much as taking a single brownie. This was the highest grossing bake sale yet and as in years past, we ran out of inventory.
