Home baking and decor at annual Queenston sale

Tourtieres and home baked goods will once again draw crowds to the Queenston Library for the annual bake sale hosted by the Queenston Residents Association this Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

More than 150 tourtieres (nine-inch meat pies) are preordered before the sale and have been sold out for weeks, said Marilyn Armstrong, chair of the resident’s association fundraiser committee.

And while the top-selling pies are sold out, the baked goods also attract droves of community members who come out and stock up for the holidays.

Armstrong said the sale is also a great time to buy holiday decorations. Gently used Christmas décor will be available and she said all items are examined before being accepted for the sale.

“They’re all in excellent condition,” she said.

For more than 12 years, the Queenston Residents Association has been hosting the Christmas sale and Armstrong said it’s the group’s biggest fundraiser.

Money raised goes back into improving the community with parks and upkeep and donated back into various charities.
