A gigantic thanks to Great Harvest Bread for use of their ovens.

Our 2016 Memorial Day “Bookie Cookie” fundraiser  had record sales, raising $1,507.  This is a lot of cookies!  Special thanks to all the “dough” makers, bakers, sellers and buyers,  and to Karen Scherbel, our “Bookie Cookie” parade mascot. And finally a huge thanks to Megan Sayas and Kristina Sayas for all their hard work in coordinating the effort.

“Bookie Cookies” have been made and sold at the Elm Grove Memorial Day Parade since 1988.
