Bake sales may soon get license exemptionSubmitted: 02/11/2014
Story By Associated Press


MADISON - Holding a bake sale in Wisconsin may soon get a little easier.

The Wisconsin Senate is set to take up a bill that would exempt bake sale
participants from obtaining a state license.

Current state law requires a license for those preparing food for sale through
baking, canning, freezing or bottling.

The bipartisan bill would create an exemption for sale of homemade baked goods
by someone who receives less than 10-thousand dollars per year from the sale of
food.

They would have to be registered and take a food safety class.

Labels on each food item would need to provide contact information, and warn
that the food was made in a private home not subject to state inspection.

The Senate is set to take up the bill today.

LAND O' LAKES - The Land O Lakes Area Artisans (LOLA) Center went through some remodeling for its classroom.

After a few months, the classroom is finally finished, and it's being dedicated to a woman who left a big impact on the community.

Friends and family got together to remember Sandra Brown, who shared her love of art with the Land O Lakes community. She passed away in 2010.

Sandra gave her time and skills to areas that didn't have art programs, and they found a way to show their appreciation.

"The space has been enlarged greatly," said LOLA President Lynn Richie. "It was a coffee shop originally. And it's being dedicated to Sandra Hardy Brown, who was instrumental in bringing us money through a memorial fund when she passed away, and it helped kick start our art classes."
