Each voting day, Hope Historical Society refreshes hungry voters by conducting a bake sale, proceeds to benefit the society.

Gwen Brodis and Ann Leadbetter are the organizers, supported by a talented corps of local bakers, producing a variety ranging from cookies and homebaked beans to exotic focaccia-bread pizzas and specialty chutneys.

Florance Merrifield is a very active handicrafter, and runs a handicraft table at the bake sale, also to benefit the Hope Historical Society.

For the June 11 Election Day table she produced a very colorful quilted comforter for which she is selling chances $1 each or six for $5.
