Gobin Church Holiday Cookie Sale set Dec. 5
The 24th annual Holiday Cookie Sale at Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church in Greencastle is set for 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 5.
Customers will don a plastic glove and make their own selections from dozens of trays of colorful homemade cookies. They can choose the kind, number and size of the cookies to put in a decorated container.
Decorated containers of two sizes will be available for sale: A small container for $5 and a large container for $11.
The secret is to get there early for the best selection.
To get to the cookie sale, use the Simpson Street entrance with the glass doors on the south side of the church building. The sale will be conducted in the church's basement. An elevette is available for those wishing to avoid the stairs.
While the sale is coordinated by the United Methodist Women, other church members play an important part in providing cookies and assisting with the sale.
This year's proceeds will be used to help the Getting Ahead and Talks Programs and Gobin's kitchen fund.
The Getting Ahead program consists of individuals learning about economic class, how it impacts peoples' lives every day, and how they can improve their lives.
TALKS (Transferring A Little Knowledge Systematically) is a structured program designed to share wisdom between generations and lead young men and women to make personal commitments to integrity and excellence. The program uses prepared material to instruct students about moral, ethical and responsible living during short weekly meetings between one adult and three middle school students or high school students.
