Strasburg Classic Car Show & LCAA Bake Sale

Saturday, July 16: 3-7pm
The Strasburg Classic Car Show was a big success last year and we had quite a few people through our galleries. Several of our artists worked plein air at the event and were a big hit! Artists are again invited to come and work plein air during the show.
This year we are having a bake sale to raise funds for the LCAA during the Car Show. We are looking for those of you who like to bake and would like to make something for our sale. We need lots of cookies (please no chocolate chip-we have someone making them). We can use any kind of fudge, brownies, buns, bread, cakes, pies, etc. Please let us know if you would like to help. We need the goodies delivered on Fri. July 15 (11am-4pm). Bring them in disposable containers, we will not be returning containers. If you would like to volunteer to help with the bake sale on July 16, please let us know.
