The two will once again join forces at the annual Manistique Area Girl Scouts Cake Auction April 24.

The theme for this year’s cake auction is “Respect Authority” as stated in the Girl Scout Law and in honor of the Michigan State Police. Girls will create cakes made entirely from edible ingredients and will be judged by local business representatives. The cakes will then be auctioned off, with Col. Doug LaFoille serving as auctioneer.

The cake auction has served as a longtime fundraiser for the Manistique Area Girl Scouts. Aside from the cookie program, it is the area’s largest fundraiser. All money raised remains locally to support programs and financial assistance for registered members.

Cakes can be dropped off at the First Baptist Church between 3:30 and 5 p.m. Judging begins promptly at 5:15 p.m. with the auction at 6 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.
