Cookies For Sale

March 25, 2011
I don't really like baking. I like eating stuff that other people bake.

Corbett Hall, University of Alberta. The aroma of freshly baked cookies and sweet icing wafted down the halls. The spirit of the Irish heightened the already sugar-induced energy buzz radiating from the crowd of students. The SLP class of 2012 was holding their first bake sale of the year, in order to raise funds for their upcoming graduation fete. Three large tables were lined edge to edge with chocolate cakes, cheesecake tarts, maple pumpkin cookies and the ever-popular chocolate chip – and even Guinness – cupcakes made an appearance.

“The turn-out was pretty good considering [many of the students] were away on placements, got out of class early and left for the day, and were writing a test throughout lunch hour! With few people around Corbett Hall, we still managed to do pretty well! A big thank you has to go out to the faculty and staff who were so generous with their support!” commented grad committee members, Kelly Sellinger and Colleen O’Brien.

Raising a whopping $450, the luck of the Irish proved to be on their side. But it doesn’t stop there.

Thus far, the 12 members of the grad committee have successfully organized movie and pizza nights held in Corbett Hall, in addition to the distribution of candy grams and candy guessing jars in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Future plans are currently in the works for a Silent Auction during the early summer, BBQs, selling of gift cards, and an Orientation Week pub crawl for next year’s new herd of SLPs.

Grad for the 2012 SLP class is scheduled for December 19, 2011 to be held at the U of A Faculty Club and proposed to feature an elegant winter theme. “We’re looking forward to a great night of friends, laughs, memories and dancing!”

“The Grad committee would like to say a special thank you to our entire class for their support so far and for their support to come!”
