Just in time for Thanksgiving, DSI, formerly known as Four Rivers, will offer a chance for the community to learn a few tricks for baking sweet treats the whole family can enjoy.
“On Nov. 20 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., we will be having Skylar Willis from Bake It Sweet here to show how to make some sweets,” said Sherri Tredway, DSI’s communications director. “She will be doing a cake demonstration and then participants will be able to make some treats to take home.”
Willis, who is from Pike County, formed Bake It Sweet earlier this year.
“Participants will learn to make and decorate creative Thanksgiving desserts that they can prepare for their family and friends to gobble up on Thanksgiving day,” said Willis.
The first of two big community events planned for this year, Tredway said the free event is open to children and adults of all ages.
“This was made possible through support from the Daviess County Community Foundation,” said Tredway, who said those planning to come can should call to register so DSI can make sure they have enough supplies for everyone. “We were able to get a grant from the United Way of Daviess County for our Enrichment and Education programs and that has allowed us to offer our consumers and the community a chance to come together and take part in some activities.”
Tredway said in December, a Christmas-themed event will take place with members of the Self-Advocates group. No date has yet been set for that event.
