Ahh the chill of fall in the air and apple cider under your nose. Don’t forget the aroma of
homemade cookies wafting through the air around the holiday hustle and bustle of it all.
The laughter is among us and memories are full forward in the works of sharing stories and
snuggling with our family close at hand.
Well yes, it is only November, but both Thanksgiving and Christmas are fast approaching
as we speak. Holidays are the time when we should SLOW DOWN not go, go, go faster
until we can’t get enough sleep and crash completely on weekends.
Unfortunately, this year UMW or United Methodist Women will not be able to help with your holiday baking needs with our annual Cookie Walk, usually held in December. Like most of 2020, this year is a little different and things aren’t quite the same. The UMW ladies have decided to be smart and safe and close our kitchens to the baking this year for others. We
highly encourage you bakers...men, women, grandmas, grandpas, and any relatives to SLOW DOWN this holiday time this year and bake some memories, I mean cookies, with your loved ones and make it a little more fun. Please understand, we didn’t come to this decision lightly. I think we talked about it for three months straight. We want to keep everyone safe, so please understand we will be thinking of you in YOUR KITCHENS this year. We hope to return in 2021 with our annual Cookie Walk. Until then, be blessed and enjoy YOUR baking memories in your kitchens.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas,
The UMW Ladies
