Cedar Key’s Junior class will hold their 18thAannual Pie
Auction this coming Tuesday, Nov. 23, in the school’s auditorium.
The doors will be opening at 6 p.m. with the auction
beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The Juniors and their sponsors Malinda Roland and
Tammy Bierman, are hoping for an attendance and sale such
as the auction two years ago when nearly $4,000 was raised.
Not only is the school group hoping for many pie-hungry
attendants, but also for those members of the community
who can donate delicious goodies as well.
Other than preparing for the pie auction, the students also
busy selling “Shark Life” long sleeve shirts and hoodies, for
$18 and $30 respectively.
The choice colors for both garments can be black, gray or
purple and they make ideal Christmas gifts. The shark design
under the “Shark Life” logo, (based off the popular “Salt
Life” brand), was drawn by Junior Class member Miranda
The 11th grade classmates are hard at work soliciting all
of these items and need your help.
If interested in donating desserts for the auction or purchasing
a long sleeve shirt or hoodie, you may contact any
CKS Junior or call Malinda Roland in the school’s office at

This year, members from the Senior chapter and Junior
