YWCA kicks off ham loaf sale


For the Daily Call



PIQUA — The YWCA is now in the seventh year of selling its traditional YWCA favorite homemade ham loaves. Having them on hand or in your freezer gives working individuals, empty nesters and those cooking for just one person less stress when it comes to meal planning.

The individual ham loaves are basted in a sweet and spicy sauce and can be purchased baked and ready-to-reheat or frozen and ready-to-bake. Four loaves per package are just $12 per bag.

“In the six years that we have sold ham loaves, we have made over 5,000 individual loaves,” said Leesa Baker, YWCA executive director and head of the ham loaf-making process. “Our many dedicated volunteers also make this bi-annual event possible.”

The ham loaves are offered in May and in December just before the holidays.

A bonus to buying the loaves, Baker noted, is the opportunity to win a floral spring decoration valued at $50. “For every package of ham loaves purchased, the buyer will receive one chance in the drawing for the spring centerpiece,” she said.

Order forms are available at the YWCA. All orders must be prepaid with Wednesday, May 10, at 5 p.m. as the deadline for placing orders. Orders will be delivered to your car in front of the YWCA on Wednesday, May 17, from 3-6 p.m.

For more information stop at the YWCA at 418 N. Wayne St. or call (937) 773-6626.
