For the past five years or more Carmen has been baking Lemon Pound Cakes, two each week,

and taking them to church on Sunday morning to give to members of Immanuel Lutheran Church

here in Silverton. Everyone raves about how moist they are! When Pastor Leah sees Carmen

coming through the doors, she smiles and says, “Here come the pound cakes.” Carmen glances

around the narthex or into the sanctuary, looking for someone to whom she has not given one

for a month or two. Then she presents the pound cake with a Carmen smile!

These pieces have been cut during the past few months. The blue heron was a gift to my brother and his wife. The chickadee was given to our friend Kathleen. And the Nativity was donated to a fund-raiser for Growing Hope Globally.
