Bake Table Personal Thanks
I wanted to personally thank all of my volunteers that served at the Bake Sale booth: Pat Durkin, Nicole and Alyssa Powers, Grace Small, Addie and Brooke Harrison. Thank you so much for your time and all of your hard work. I could not have done it without you! I look forward to working with y'all next year :-) As for all of the awesome St. Brendan bakers, you’ve done it again! Y’all are absolutely the best! St. Brendan’s is truly blessed to have so many great bakers! I personally appreciate everyone who worked tirelessly baking and truly giving of themselves and donating the best home made goodies for us to sell. Thank you again! God bless, Laura Harrison
