After a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Peter’s Parish is planning to host its annual Easter Bake Sale on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. This event billed as one of the largest bake sales in the State spans more than 60 years featuring traditional ethnic recipes.
In addition to the annual sale, a presale of pierogis and cabbage rolls will be held on Saturday, March 20, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the High School Cafeteria. The pre-sale gives individuals an additional opportunity to pick up two of the biggest fan favorites ahead of the main bake sale.
A small army of volunteers will once again prepare over 3,000 cabbage rolls, hundreds of potica rolls, braided breads, and butter rings. Also making a return this year are fan favorites, including hundreds of chocolate candies, potato and egg salads, and various ethnic and baked goods.
COVID-19 protocols will be in place for volunteers involved with food preparation. A revised traffic pattern on the sale day should allow for better social distancing and a safe shopping experience.
“Thankfully, many of our volunteers are older and have already received their vaccinations,” said Ann Brown, bake sale coordinator. “We have made some changes to our process, and all of our volunteers will continue to follow CDC and State of Ohio guidelines.”
There will be a few changes to this year’s event. The sale will only run for one day instead of two, and there will be no lunch served this year. Proceeds from the Easter Bake Sale go towards purchasing wine, hosts, and other Sacramental items used by the church throughout the year.
Over 200 volunteers from all faiths and walks of life work very hard to make this event a success and celebrate the charity and goodness of the wonderful people in our community.
