Phi Alpha Theta Sponsors Franco-American Bake Sale

Mar 7, 2012 -

Union’s Delta-Psi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society held its Eighth Annual Franco-American Confection and Bake Sale on March 7, 2012. Several Phi Alpha Theta members provided an array of baked goods and candies, including Snickerdoodles, peanut butter fudge, toffee, sugar cookies, Oreo balls, chocolate cupcakes, and brownies. The French items, prepared by Dr. Alice-Catherine Carls, consisted of croissants, truffles, dark chocolate mini cakes, and Madeleine tea cakes. Dr. Carls also prepared cinnamon rolls and almond-cranberry-pistachio biscotti. Seven Delta-Psi members, led by Chapter President Caitlin Roach and Vice President Savannah German, worked at the sale tables at one point or another.

The bake sale started at 8:30 a.m. near Barefoots Joe, then moved to the chapel foyer, and concluded near the Lexington Inn. Many Union administrators, faculty, staff, and students supported the event through purchases via donations, and every single item that the Delta-Psi Chapter had on its sale tables sold before the event officially ended.
