L’Arche Comox Valley offering interactive online baking event for Mother’s Day

You can ‘Bake Mama Happy” this Mother’s Day while supporting L’Arche Comox Valley.

L’Arche CV is partnering with On the Fly Café to present a fun and interactive Zoom baking event.

Join them on Saturday, May 8 to make delicious blueberry scones with lemon cream cheese icing. Then, while the scones are baking, participants can learn how to make a beautiful tissue paper poppy.

The event is suitable for kids (with an adult to help), baking dads, or moms – anyone who loves fresh-from-the-oven baking.

Based out of the I Belong Centre, L’Arche CV has been working to create community for and with adults with developmental disabilities in the Comox Valley since 2000. This includes people who have been among the hardest hit by COVID isolation measures. More than ever before, they are looking for connection and a sense of belonging in the community. Supporting this event will help provide funding to restart the social and recreational programs at the I Belong Centre in the fall.

Registration for the event is $45 and includes everything needed to create an amazing Mother’s Day experience – all the scone ingredients, materials to make a tissue paper flower (or wrap a gift), a beautiful L’Arche art card, and the Zoom link for the event. The only thing participants need to provide is the oven and a pair of willing hands.

To register, phone the L’Arche CV office at 250-334-8320. Payment can be made with a credit card, or drop by with a cheque. Organizers will arrange a time to pick up your Bake Mama Happy kit the week before the event. For those who don’t drive, there is a delivery option available. As a special bonus, everyone who registers for the event will also be entered in On the Fly’s draw for an amazing Mother’s day picnic basket.

FMI, contact the L’Arche CV office.
