During the Christmas season, sweets are a necessary part of the festivities. But for one local group, the sweet treats are only one small part of their mission. These ladies have been sharing sweets with one another during the Christmas season for the past 7 years. Each year they have increased in number, in strength and in purpose. This year, officially named Sweet Sugar Shakers, these ladies hosted approximately 80 friends and family to collect items and money to assemble packages that will benefit local school children.
