Bake Week is quickly approaching and will take place from Sunday, May 7 to Thursday, May 11. Bake week is when we bake all 15,000 shortcakes that will be drenched in strawberries and served to hungry crowds at the 57th annual Strawberry Festival on June 8. All are welcome to help, as we have a variety of jobs for a variety of abilities. We ask that the minimum age for volunteers is 12 years old with an accompanying adult. There will be three shifts per day: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.; and 4 to 8 p.m. The Tuesday evening shift from 4 to 8 p.m. will be conducted in Spanish and hosted by Maria Luisa Sanchez and Joselin Ramirez. Those who speak Spanish are always welcome at other shifts, but there will be a need for a little translation help! Sign up for one or more shifts!
Donations Needed! Support Bakers With Food & Drinks
Want to support the bakers but don’t have time to volunteer for a shift? Donations of individually packaged snacks and beverages are needed for Bake Week. The Cathedral Women are requesting donations to help feed our volunteers during Bake Week. If you are able, please consider donating pre-packaged chips, snacks, nuts, fruit, bottled water, juice, soda, etc. Please drop off donations in the nursery downstairs on or before Sunday, May 7.
