Cookie walk 2018!
This year’s Cookie Walk is Friday, December 7, and as always, we need bakers and helpers. The Cookie Walk is a long-held and cherished fundraising tradition at UUSG, and it is part of the Geneva celebration that welcomes in the holiday season with light, food, and festivities. It’s also a lot of fun—in one evening, we sell over 6,000 beautiful holiday cookies!
Many of you already know what to do – if you plan to help, please sign up here.
You can help by doing any of the following:
Bake cookies (6, 12, or 18 dozen—or more!).
Set up for the event on Thursday, December 6, 6:30-8:30pm.
Work at the event itself: 3:45-5:30pm or 5:15-7pm.
Post flyers around town before the event.
Want to Bake?
Please make festive holiday cookies (the plain ones, as tasty as they may be, just don’t sell as well).
Please use recyclable containers, there will be some recycled containers available in the common room during coffee hour.
Make sure they are well-protected and attach the name of the cookies. Please label clearly! If the cookies have nuts please say what kind.
Drop off your cookies on Thursday, December 6, between 6:30pm and 8:30pm. If you’re not able to make it to UUSG on Thursday evening, please contact Christine Imielski in the church office to make arrangements to bring your cookies earlier in the week. Please note that no one will be at UUSG to accept cookies on Friday.
Not a Baker? Set Up for or Help at the Event
Help with set-up on Thursday, December 6, 6:30-8:30pm. Set-up includes assembling boxes, setting up tables, arranging the cookies, etc. The tasks are simple, we go at a leisurely pace, and we talk a lot. You may sit or stand as you prefer. Broken cookies may be sampled this night only.
Help during the event on Friday, December 7, 3:45-5:30pm or 5:15-7pm. Helping at the event itself is a little more hectic, but great fun! There are a couple of sitting jobs, but for most of them you must stand. Tasks include keeping the cookie tables filled with cookies, taping boxes, recycling containers, and handing out gloves.
