The 4th of July Baking event, sponsored by a Thrivent Action Team grant, was a huge success. Both freezers were filled with baked goods – decorative signs for the sale were made – and cookies got decorated. All ages participated in this preparation for the annual 4th of July Bake Sale which raises funds for the First Responders.
The Bake Sale for the First Responders, held before and after the parade on July 4th at the Fire Hall, generated nearly $1000. What a great day! With support from the entire community, most of the baked goods were gone within minutes of the end of the parade. It’s not too late to add your financial donation to the money raised. You can send it to the church and we may still hit that $1000 mark!

This is a great opportunity for children to interact with adults in a setting geared for them. Please contact Pat Janke, if you would like to help for 1, 2, or even all 6 sessions.
