Twenty-two people contributed to the goodies being sold at the Weisenberg-Lowhill Historical Society headquarters on Dec. 9. Eighteen of those people baked cookies and four made soup.

There were six tables filled with cookies of many varieties. MaryCathrine Mederofik baked 60 to 70 dozen with at least 36 dozen of cream cheese thumb-print cookies.

Chicken noodle, chicken corn noodle, vegetable beef, vegetable and barley, and hamburger vegetable were the featured homemade soups.

Crafts for kids began at 10 a.m. Debi Zvanut, in charge of the project, said she had foam shapes that could be made into a tree ornament with a piece of ribbon or a refrigerator magnet with a magnet glued on back.

She had trees, snowmen and gingerbread men.

In addition to the new crafts, she brought the old time traditional crafts that were here other years. Kids like the cinnamon stick reindeer.

Each child received an “I believe” bell from the Polar Express story. The boy in the story lost his bell and was heartbroken but came to realize the Spirit of Christmas was more than a bell.
