The Adult Leadership Class of Sulphur Springs can lighten your load this Easter Sunday by baking all your holiday treats.

Members of the Adult Leadership Class will be baking festive indulgences just in time for the Passover with goodies available in all price ranges, according to Markeda Fisher, class secretary, who is helping organize Friday’s bake sale in front of Alliance Bank downtown on the square from 8 a.m. until noon.

“We’ll have everything from cookies, cakes, pies and homemade breads like banana nut or zucchini-and maybe even cupcakes, too,” said Fisher. “We will have well over 100 offerings for the community to purchase.

“And it’s all for a good cause,” she added.

Proceeds from the sale will go towards the class’s 2009 project which is to restore the historic vault doors of the Hopkins County Courthouse. Fisher said the class has already raised more than half of the estimated $12,400 cost for refurbishing the antique doors, but still needs approximately $6,000 more.

“We had a really successful Valentine bake sale, so we thought we’d give it a go for Easter,” Fisher explained. “It will be just one less thing people have to do in preparing for their holiday meal.”

Also up for grabs Friday is a gas grill valued at more than $700 and a $500 Wal-Mart gift card. Tickets for these raffle items may be purchased for $5 each or five tickets for $20. Tickets can be bought at the bake sale, or prior to Friday at Professional Land Title and all local banks.

In addition to the fund raisers, the Leadership Class, with the assistance of Precinct 1 Commissioner Beth Wisenbaker, are applying for grant monies to support the vault door project.

For more information on how to make a donation contact Matt Brown, class president, at 903-885-3193, or Fisher at 903-8851586.
