As the new school year begins, the club must select new officers to lead us in our meetings and other events.  We chose a president, a vice president, a secretary, and a treasurer. This year, we have an awesome new group of club officers. Good luck to all!


City of Fairfax Fall Festival Fundraiser

City of Fairfax Fall FEstivalWhat a rainy day! But we persevered, offering goodies that we made to support the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. We did not sell the desserts for a fixed price but offered them to the people who came by in return for a donation. At the end of the day we had some desserts left over and we gave them away. The people who took the free food still gave very generously to our cause.
