PLYMOUTH â€” The baked goods were already selling out.
Pink cupcakes, cookies, rice crispies, and other sugary treats covered a table near the entrance of the Plymouth soccerplex Thursday night.

The bake sale was part of Operation Leadershipâ€™s weeklong efforts to raise money for the Nancy Jaynes memorial scholarship. Jaynes was a teacher at PHS for 30 years before passing away due to breast cancer in 2008.
