May 6, 2011 (Lake Murray) -- The Lake Murray 4th of July Music Fest Bake Sale will be held this Saturday, May 7th. Each year the Music Fest committee budget runs short, so we are starting early to give them a fund-raising boost. Most of us look forward to watching the fireworks from our favorite viewing point above Lake Murray, so let's work together to ensure it's success again this year. Everyone can do their part by donating a baked goodie and/or stopping by our booth to support the cause. The bake sale will be held at the corner of Del Cerro Blvd. and Marne Ave. (across from the Chevron).
