St. Paul’s Lutheran Church held their annual “Cookie Walk” fundraiser on Sat., Dec. 14. The fundraiser derives its name from the walk one takes between tables laden with a variety of cookies set up in the large Fellowship and Learning Center. All the cookies are homemade. Attendees filled their containers with the holiday treats paying $6 per pound.
A German specialty cookie, Lebkuchen, sold for $1. It’s a dense cookie filled with candied fruit, raisins and nuts with a spicy aroma. Pfeffernusse, another traditional German Christmas cookie, was heaped up on platters waiting to be chosen.
Not taking a back seat, peanut butter, chocolate chip, shortbread, anise, oatmeal raisin, Mexican Wedding, rum balls and puppy chow were a few others available. In total, 140 pounds of cookies were sold.
Many attending said they were buying up their favorites to serve over the holiday season. That’s what Grace Doede, Donna Kneebush and her granddaughter, Heather Skyes, were doing that morning. Doede said, “There are a lot of special cookies here today.”
Along with the cookies, the ladies sold some donated Christmas items that helped bring near $1,000 to their coffers.
If you have a sweet tooth, next December remember to attend this delicious fundraiser.
The church is located at 106 Dexter Street. Sunday school is offered each week at 9:45 a.m. and worship service is held at 11 a.m. Childcare is provided.
