Program Inspiration: Valentine’s Bake & Craft Sale
The Alexandria, Virginia Home League began preparations on February 4th for their Valentine’s Day Bake Sale. The ladies are raising funds for the Mexico Children’s Home that they support each year and are using their baking skills and creativity this Valentine’s Day to do so. Along with a wide variety of seasonal baked goods, they have prepared Twinkie cakes dressed as the wildly popular yellow Minions from the movie, “Despicable Me”. The label on the cakes read “You’re One in a MINION”. Other items sure to be best sellers are the Star Wars themed Tic Tacs, with labels such as “You R2 Cute”, “Yoda One For Me”, “Ewok My World”, and “Come to the Heart Side”. In addition to sweets, the ladies have prepared Flower Bouquets using vintage Salvation Army songbook pages. They have taken pages of the most beloved songs and created beautiful keepsakes to display for years to come! The sale will take place following our Holiness Meeting on Sunday, February 14th. This is our first Valentine’s Bake Sale, but the ladies were so excited with their finished products, I’m sure it won’t be the last.
