Bake Sale (Senior Project)

Madison Darlage from Columbus Christian School is doing a senior project that will help the Bartholomew County Community and Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department. She plans to raise five hundred dollars for the police and any equipment they may need and five hundred dollars to the detectives of the department for a fast pack 350 which holds and allows easy access to equipment when arriving to a crime scene. She will also raise the money for wet print paper which allows finger prints to be collected more accurately and clearer on a wet or dry surface. There is a bake sale at Columbus Christian Church. Since it’s Valentine’s Day, Linzy B’s Bakery has prepared some cute, sweet treats for this bake sale! Everything is being donated.  You can also donate February through April by sending money to Columbus Christian School, checks made out to Madison Darlage, and delivered or sent to Mrs. Harvey in the main office or through her GoFundMe account: Check out Madison’s Facebook Event Page to keep up with future bake sales:
