Local Bakeries Will Celebrate National Bakery Day

Members of the Wisconsin Bakers Association (WBA) will celebrate the first-ever official National Bakery Day on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.  National Bakery Day is an exciting national event spearheaded by The Retail Bakers of America (RBA) that is all about celebrating neighborhood bakeries across the United States and showing that local bakeries are such a vital part of our communities.

“We are really excited about celebrating this unique day dedicated to bakeries,” said Tamara Mugerauer, WBA president and owner of Tamara’s the Cake Guru in Oshkosh, WI and Appleton, WI.  “It’s such a great concept that highlights not only the baking industry but the small, independent mom and pop shops that are an important part of our communities.”
