Thanks to all for help to feed hungry kids

On Aug. 21, the Great American Bake Sale was held at the Everett Elks Lodge.

A huge thank you to the Elks for allowing the sale to be held in their beautiful lodge room.

Ann Hall and I co-chaired the event, which raised $1,217.63 for “Share Our Strength.”

Proceeds from bake sales around the USA go toward funding grants for schools and nonprofits that work to help feed hungry kids in America!

Many people deserve thanks for all their support and help. A big thanks to The Herald’s Judyrae Kruse from The Forum for the nice write up in her column.

Thanks to Linda Averill and Ann Hall for selling raffle tickets at the Elks for two weeks before the sale. Thanks to the barber shoppers for the great songs and helping to judge our cookie and cupcake contest. Thanks to Karl’s Bakery for the wonderful pastries.

A huge thank you goes to Kelly Brown from Pave Bakery on Colby for giving his time to judge both the cookie and cupcake contest.

The cookie contest winner was Dianne Berst. Cupcake winners were Tina Campbell for best decorated and Carol Strobe for best taste.

This is the second year for our bake sale and the second year the VFW in Everett has donated money to our sale. We thank you.

Thanks to Angel of the Winds for the great basket they donated for the raffle.

A huge thank you goes out to all the “Share Our Strength” helpers. You made this possible: Linda Averill, Ann Hall, Dianne Berst, Rosanne Carlson, Rose Senn, Dorothy Napson and Judy Hutchins.

Our biggest sale of the day was a bag of homemade peanut brittle. Rosanne Carlson brought it for $100. A big thanks to you Rosanne, enjoy!
