First Fall Bake Sale

Which cookies to buy?
Two day's after the Fall Hayride, the weather had turned much cooler and our volunteers braved the cold and the breezes to sell baked goods in front of Walmart for five hours on Friday, Oct. 26. Our Spring Bake Sale saw us begin with $200 worth of baked goods and sell them out by 5:30 p.m. (The sale had been scheduled to last till 7 p.m.) So, our goal this time was to either not run out of baked goods or at least not until closer to the scheduled end of the sale. With almost $300 worth of baked goods, we ran out about 15 minutes before the scheduled end of the sale. Donations put our total take-in for the sale at $358.47. This money will be used to provide free and low-cost programs for area homeschooling families. Thank you to all our volunteers for their hard work and to the people of Jefferson City for their generosity!
