Holiday Recognition Cakes!
Calling all bakers to participate in a long-standing Oak Street tradition: Holiday Recognition Cakes. We need your help to bake a cake for every person in our OSS community - from the teachers and staff to the crossing-guards and delivery drivers. Our OSS community has grown, and we need even more volunteers than ever! If you can make a cake from a box mix, you can be a Holiday Recognition baker. See the attached flyer for details or click here to sign up.
