International Women’s Day Impromptu Bakesale

Long-time volunteer Sue Cronkwright serves up her delicious torte to an eager figure skater at the CP arena March 8.


We would like to send a big thank you to the town of Carleton Place and the CP Arena Staff for allowing LCIH to set up a spontaneous bakesale on International Women’s Day.

We had baking left over from the successful IWD film presentation the previous night. And considering this wasn’t your average rice-crispie square bakesale (our wonderful volunteers had baked luxurious treats like Red Velvet Cupcakes, Apple Tortes, Apple Cheesecake, Maple Syrup Carrot  Cake, Mississippi Mudpie and an assortment of mini cheesecakes) it was just too good to go to waste.

So we packed it up and brought it down to the arena where we sold out in no time. Those figure skaters like their baked goods! We raised $90 to put directly into our shelter programming and got to spread some International Women’s Day joy. Thanks again to our volunteers, the arena and everyone who donated to LCIH and enjoyed the baking. A  big success!
