Figure skater Morgan DeGroot especially liked the candy sticks.

The NOTL Figure Skating club celebrated Valentine’s Day early with a festive bake sale Saturday afternoon – and, predictably, it was sweet.

“The candy sticks were great. So were the raspberry bars and the cupcakes,” said Morgan, 8, who was helping out at the sale along with her family.

“The cupcakes were popular. They didn’t stand a chance,” joked her mom, Leigh DeGroot.

By the time the sale wrapped up, treats were condensed to one table after what dad Adrian DeGroot said was a busy few hours.

“Some hockey teams rolled through and bought a ton.”

Hungry patrons seeking to support the club purchased baked goods and treats donated from over 30 families. 

Organizer Lolita Hale said when the day started, there were three tables overflowing with goodies.

Proceeds from the sale will go directly to keeping the costs of the skating programs accessible.
