“I’ve been baking for more than 25 years, all through the tri-state area. I do everything: weddings, baby showers, you name it, I’ve done it.

I also do different nursing homes — Elmcroft in Chippewa, Villa St. Joseph, a lot of them in the county. I go to different nursing homes to their activities department and I do baking with the residents. I’ve been doing that for about 5 or 6 years.

I’m only doing the Ambridge Farmers Market this year, and getting ready for holiday orders.”

(Gloria Dorsey of Clinton talks about her life as baker. Stop by and say hi during the Ambridge Farmers Market, held on Thursdays, 4pm til dusk on Park Road)

Erin Ninehouser loves photography for its ability to reveal truths and insights that are often too difficult to capture with words. She believes, as Garrison Keillor says through his troubled yet triumphant character Barbara in Pontoon, that “the only sermon that counts is the one formed by our actions.” A native of New Castle, Erin has made her home in Ambridge where she lives happily with her wonderful husband Dave, their three adorable and hilarious cats, and their “old gentleman” dog, Max. Erin is excited to help tell the stories of the people of Beaver County. You can see more of her work on Facebook and connect on Instagram or Twitter.
