Gingersnaps Etc. was a labor of love developed by super-volunteer and friend of The Center For Pursuit Alicia Lee, whose son, Jeffery, was a long-time resident. In the beginning, Alicia baked and sold fruitcakes to support The CenterFor Pursuit's work. At the same time, she volunteered in the office of former President George H.W. Bush. It was there that former First Lady Barbara Bush took an interest in the project and made the suggestion that inspired our now-famous gingersnaps. When asked if she would support the project, Mrs. Bush was happy to help.
