11:29 AM: As mentioned in today’s highlight list, local families have baked up a variety of treats and are selling them right now north of The Junction, raising money to reunify asylum seekers and their children. It’s at 4146 44th SW and scheduled to continue until 1 pm; Jennifer, the organizer, says contributors have continued to drop off sale items, too, including a mom, baby in tow, who had created a three-layer cake!
