Baking for Juneteenth
It’s a tradition that now spans generations for both a family and a community: The Garland Warren, Nelvia L. Burleson and Charles Callihan Memorial Cake Auction. The event, which raises money for scholarships for local students, is the first of several local Juneteenth events and will be held at the San Marcos Activity Center tomorrow from 6-8 p.m.
Local volunteering dynamo Rose Brooks was one of the founders of the cake auction, along with Burleson and Johnnie Armstead. Earlier this week, her great-grandchildren got together with her daughter, Bobbie Shaw, to practice baking for the cake auction by baking cakes for their father, Ray Tansil, who returned home from deployment in the Middle East on Monday.
