Photos courtesy of Jill Beets The Aktion Club just completed another service project... Participating in the national Great American Bake Sale. The club raised nearly $500 for children’s hunger causes by holding three bake sales -- two in Albuquerque and one in Belen. Over 25 of the Aktion Club members participated by bak- ing items or working the bake sales. In addition, their efforts were supported by several members of the Kiwanis Club of Albuquerque. Jill Beets and Nelle Conway baked and worked the sale as the club’s advisors. Mary Jo Dawson, Cookie Emerson, and Amy Horowitz provided delicious baked goods, and Dave Orner came by to purchase goodies for his office to support the effort.
