We had a fun group turnout for our online Brownie Baking event on Saturday! Seven youth participants and event leader Stephanie Hurd, demonstrated thier baking talents and shared some images of the results with us.
Our participants were mostly from New Hampshire and Massachusetts, but a couple were joining in from Florida and Virginia because they were either traveling or had moved. This is one of the great aspects of having our events online, you can still participate and share with the group whether you are near or far.
Below are a couple of yummy images from our participants, enjoy!
