2:00 p.m. update: If you missed a trip to Mary Branch, you can still score some baked goods. Tori Saenz's dad, Eric, okayed a move to the front of the College Station WalMart for the unsold tasty treats. Thanks everyone!
Okay. This is sort of a convoluted story, but . . . for our local readers, a window of opportunity will open and close today. The Southwest chapter of the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (these are really awesome folks!!!) had planned a bake sale to raise money for Lunch for Life at the Earth Day Festival in The Woodlands today. Even more incredibly, they planned to donate all the proceeds to Lunch for Life in Erin's memory.
The rain god had another plan.
Organizers cancelled the festival about 5:00 yesterday evening. . .after all the bakers had baked goodies--tasty and perishable goodies.
By a quarter to six, they had made an alternative plan.
Erin's old elementary school, Mary Branch, has their annual carnival today--indoors! The bake sale will go on as planned, in Bryan instead of at The Woodlands.
If you have a hankering for baked goods (individually wrapped and whole cakes and pies, mostly organic in the spirit of Earth Day) stop by the Mary Branch Elementary Spring Carnival at 2040 W. Villa Maria between 10:00 and 2:00. This is a wonderful use of a rainy Saturday. And think about it. You have probably already eaten all the chocolate bunny ears in your house. It's time to replenish your stock of tasty treats.
