Sweet holiday fundraiser for local shelter

Bakers, don your aprons — it's time to get creative! Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter’s 3rd annual Gingerbread Dog House contest is happening December 13, 2014. Don’t let the name fool you, though: in addition to traditional gingerbread houses, any pet-inspired baked goods are welcome as long as entries are 100% edible. There are five different categories, ranging from Youth to Culinary Pros, with awards for winning entries. Entry is free; pre-registration is required and a donation to the animals is appreciated. For registration/details, visit WashingtonCountyPets.com.
