The Community & Children's Impact Center - Making A Difference One Child At A Time

Hug-a-Tree you ask? Some think this means we are a environmental group. Yes we care about the Earth that the good Lord has give us but the name Hug-A-Tree comes from lessons taught by The Boy Scouts. If you have ever been a Scout then you know that you are taught that if you get lost in the woods or away from home they say stay in one spot and  Hug-A-Tree. It makes it easier to find you and it can save your LIFE. Learn even more of these life saving skills at this event

About Rosemary Galpin, Sugar Artist
Owner of Memory Makers Cakes

My road to confectionery art was a long one, with lots of twists and turns. I worked with many mediums before discovering sugar. Fabric was my passion through my teens and twenties. Craft shows held my interest in my thirties. Wood, paint, and glass helped fulfill my artistic need during my forties.

In 2008, shortly before my fiftieth birthday, a friend suggested that we take a Wilton course. I always enjoyed baking so I signed up for the class. My friend lost interest after course one, but I was hooked! I took all the Wilton classes offered and craved more!

Near the end of the last course the instructor told our class about the Oklahoma State Sugar Arts Show. He suggested that we all convoy to Tulsa to “check out the talent” and we agreed. When I told my husband about the road trip, he said why not enter a cake? I ended up doing two. I won first place for my tiered wedding cake, second for my seasonal and best of division in the adult advanced category. I was further blessed when Maria McBride chose my wedding cake for Brides Magazine's 75th Anniversary Edition in Feb 2009!

A short time later I met Martha and Becky of Sweet Southern Ladies. Their encouragement helped me decide that 50 is not too old to start a new career and Memory Makers Cakes was born. My wonderful husband of 26 years helped make my dream a reality by building my commercial kitchen. (And he makes all my butter cream too!)

My work has been featured in Brides Magazine, Modern Wedding Cakes and Chocolates, American Cake Decorators Magazine, Cake Central Magazine, Mail Box News Magazine, Hill Country Sun Magazine and The Smithville Times.

Specializing in fondant and gum paste work, I provide high end wedding, grooms, corporate and large event cakes. My philosophy is to provide my clients with  wonderful memories of their special day, one cake at a time.

Star-Spangled Bus to Serve Veterans
HMQS is pleased to announce that The Serving Project Bus will be on special display at HMQS! 
 The Serving Project Bus, a 60’ bus created to meet all ADA accessibility standards, was built with love
 by Texan, Keith Field, to serve war veterans. The purpose of the bus is to transport veterans to and from
 medical appointments in comfort and dignity. Complete with Internet, a kitchen, washer & dryer facilities,
800 lb. wheelchair lift, sleeping area, and even a walk-in whirlpool tub in the center of the bus – this bus treats
veterans to a ride in style!  Details of the interior include “Purple Heart” hardwood shipped in from South America,
and the official seal of the United States backlit on the stone mantle. HMQS attendees will have the opportunity to
 tour inside the deckedout bus, as well as speak with Keith about his inspiration for the bus. For more information
on The Serving Project Bus you may visit their web site at
American Red Cross
