10th Annual Cookie Walk

Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church
(2381 New Hackensack Road, Poughkeepsie).

We need lots of cookies for this event.  Do you like to bake?  Perhaps you have a family recipe or a special home-baked gourmet cookie favorite.  Cookies should be dropped off at Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church on Friday, February 9, between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.  (There will be a sign-in sheet at the drop-off, asking for the name of the person who made the cookies, their church, and the type and number of cookies donated.)

Whether or not you are able to bake cookies, join us on Saturday and walk through rows of tables choosing from hundreds of pounds of delicious, specialty, home-baked cookies.

Suggested donation is $8.00/pound. Just in time for Valentine’s Day!  If you have any questions, please contact director@mhlinc.org.

“Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.”
~ 1 John 4:20-21
