In October, neighbors Powell Perng and Stacy Wells met with Principal Grotsky at Mt. Royal Elementary to discuss fundraising goals.
From that meeting, Stacy saw an opportunity to raise additional funds by selling baked goods at the Bolton Hill Garden Club Greens Sale at Brown Memorial Church. The proceeds from the bake sale would go towards funding a 6th-grade student for the annual NorthBay Adventure Camp trip in May 2017.
The camp is a week-long overnight camp where students learn about leadership, environmental stewardship, and teamwork.
MRIA’s Churches and Schools Committee offered to donate baked goods, and, led by famed holiday bakers Marjorie Forster and Barbara Francis, they supplied a sleigh-full of treats for the sale. In all, $267 was raised by the sale, enough to subsidize 1 or 2 summer camp attendees.
Thanks, Stacy and Powell, for your organizational efforts!
