Countdown to Christmas: Cookie Stroll This Weekend!

The 7th Annual Holiday Cookie Stroll will take place tomorrow, Saturday, December 8, from 10:00-3:00, rain or shine, in historic Bass River, South Yarmouth.

The "ticket" is actually a cookbook with the recipes of all cookies served on this two-mile walking tour to ten sites, including the Cultural Center of Cape Cod and an Open House at the South Yarmouth Library.

Last year, I went with my mom, my sister and my neighbor. Mom was in the middle of her first round of chemotherapy before her surgery, so she was a little weak but still enthusiastic. She loves Christmas, and loves checking out historic homes. It was a fun day. We took it slow, and there's a trolley if you need a break from walking.
 

The cookbook comes with a festive drawstring bag for collecting cookies along the way. Free trolley transport will be available between groups of houses. All proceeds go to support the South Yarmouth Library. This year's honorees are Trustee Emeritus Priscilla Conner and the late John Conner, both former trustees and treasurers of the South Yarmouth Library Association.Hot cider and cranberry bread will be served at the library, where visitors will see a display about the Conners.

Tickets are $15.00. Children under 12 are free but only ticket holders receive cookies. Tickets are limited and may be purchased at the South Yarmouth Library, Bass River Shoe Repair on Old Main Street, and Adrene Jewelers in the Hearth and Kettle Plaza.
