Creativity, community — and cake

Fellers’ Cake Bake funds scout activities and fights stereotypes

Who says men don’t belong in the kitchen? One of Osceola’s most anticipated spring flings, the Scouts’ Fellers’ Cake Bake, takes place 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 20, in the Clarke Elementary cafeteria. Viewing begins at 6:15 p.m.

The cake auction pairs Cub Scout and Boy Scout participants with a father, brother or older male figure. The ultimate goal is creating delectible desserts — and raising money for scout activities.

“Osceola is one of the few groups that really tries to pay for our kids to do things. Kids who can’t participate in other things can still take part,” said Cubmaster Callie Shields.

Money from the cake auction goes toward camp fees, camping supplies and activities held throughout the year.

How much do the cakes go for?

“Anywhere from $30 up,” says 2017 Cake Bake Co-chairperson Rose Grief. “The sky is the limit.”

In the past, businesses have spent hundreds of dollars on the most outstanding entries. According to Grief, it’s an investment in the community, and gives the boys a reward for the effort they’re making toward becoming good citizens.

Those who would like to contribute without participating in the auction may contact Sara Whirrett at 641-414-3486 or Rose Grief at 641-414-2989 or mail a donation to 2178 290th Ave.
