May 9, 2015 –Sweet Memories Dessert Auction

Get Treats in Time for Mother's Day: A silent auction featuring baked goods and speciality items from over a century of celebrated bakers and cooks: great-grandmothers, grandmothers, mothers, great-aunts, aunts, godmothers, sisters -- whose lives will be honored with family exhibits of photographs and memorabilia.

You may honor a mother, grandmother, aunt, teacher or special friend. $30 buys the display space on which will be displayed the dessert, memorabilia, bio info, photos, the recipe and floral display. We have volunteers to handle the floral display if you like and extra platters should you not have one you would like to part with. (The successful bidder will be given the dessert with platter and recipe.) The display items can be dropped off at Barbara Perra's house, and originals will be returned to you.Wendy Lestina will copy, edit, etc.

Proceeds to benefit the Ferndale Museum. Saturday, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., Ferndale City Hall. For more information: Wendy Lestina, 707-786-9196.​​
