On Saturday, April 27th, from 7am to 1pm, members of the Athens Garden Club are hosting a bake sale fundraiser for their annual scholarship drive. One hundred percent of the bake sale proceeds will go to one deserving Limestone County student who will earn the $1,000 scholarship. The bake sale will take place in front of Pablo’s, and baked offerings will include custom created baked goods from the award-winning Bakery at Elkmont. Also, the ladies from the Garden Club will be making some homemade cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cakes, and fried pies.
At 12pm, guest auctioneer, Donnie Cornelison, will auction off some signature prizes to include: a 3-day weekend retreat at a local Tennessee River Vacation home, a showpiece concrete birdbath from Sutton’s furniture, a metal centerpiece University of Alabama football from Rustic River, and one large scoop of mulch from the Athens-Limestone Farmer’s Co-op.
This bake sale will coincide with the Athens Annual Car Show, so after purchasing some delicious, baked-with-love delights, treat yourself by viewing over 800 antique cars beautifully displayed on the Square by their owners. Students planning on applying for the scholarship must see their school counselor immediately for an application. Last day to apply is Friday, April 12th.
We look forward to seeing you there on the Square!
