Friends of the Bryan Public Library are once again pulling out their bowls, blenders and whisks for the Valentine Bake Sale, from 10 a.m - 6 p.m. Thursday in the Esther Pippen Meeting room.
In addition to all the home-baked goodies for sale, raffle tickets were on sale for $1 each for a chance to win: 1 dred roses, donated by Petal Pushers, dinner for two at Main Street Market and Restaurant, donated by Carol and Robert Lummus, a valentine box of homemade fudge, donated by Anne Frye, a gift basket, donated by Rose Drug Co., a four-piece set of pottery (two soup bowls and two mugs), donated by Leslie Jones of Persnickety Pottery, Bryan Public Library T-shirts and autographed books donated by Friends of the Library, by authors, Rufus Ward and Rell Webber and Mississippi-born author, Carolyn Haines.
â€śWe always look forward to the Valentine Bake Sale and raffle,â€ť said Lucille Armstrong, president of Friends of the Library. â€śThis is our fundraiser for the Summer Reading Program during February. We donâ€™t sponsor a Luncheon with Books until March. The community is always so generous with local businesses donating things to raffle and Friends doing some great baking and candy making. We want everyone to come and pick up something sweet for their sweetheart or for themselves, everyone deserves a treat now and then.â€ť
This is the fifth straight year for the Valentine bake sale. It continues to be a greatly anticipated event by residents with a sweet tooth who want to support the public library, Armstrong said.
