Bakers, Sellers, and Donated Goodies Needed for Election Day Bake Sale!

YCS will be serving as an election site Tuesday, November 8th – and since it is a major election, we expect a huge turnout of voters from our community. This is a great opportunity to sell baked goods and other snack items to people waiting in line to cast their ballots, with all proceeds going back to our school! Please CLICK HERE to register to bake or sell. Everything must be dropped off at the PTA the day before, and fresh items must be individually wrapped. For questions, please contact Alex and Caroline Oberweger at oberwegerfamily@gmail.com. Thank you for your help!
