President's Message


Dear Friends,


I hope this newsletter finds all of you in good spirits as we enter the summer season. We are busy at our bakery with occasion cakes as most of us are this time of year.

We had a nice workshop at Teena's Cake Fair last month, thanks to the Wasserman family. We will be having a workshop at my bakery on Wednesday, September 14th.

Our goal is to help our members succeed by providing education and ideas that businesses need to prosper and grow. We all know that the camaraderie shared amongst us helps

benefit our bakeries, this is what makes our association strong. Also, we are having some social events over the summer and fall, we welcome you to join us.


I wish you the best in baking,


Joseph Gifoli
