WHAT IS A COOKIE WALK???

The tradition of cookie walks is not confined to Walton. This early December event is held at churches in the United States and Canada, and the format seems to be the same everywhere: long tables set end to end, covered with plates and trays of Christmas cookies. In 1973, the late Henny Degenhardt suggested Walton have a Cookie Walk. The U.C.W. phoned members of the congregation and asked them for twelve dozen fancy cookies (each!) to be delivered to the church on the first Saturday of December. Cookie-lined trays were set out on tables in Bronte Hall and people purchased an empty bakery box and filled it to the brim with As it was so successful, this is now the U.C.W.’s 43rd year. The U.C.W. does not ask for twelve dozen cookies anymore, as this can be intimidating; now one or two batches of fancy cookies are requested. The same people attend year after year to purchase their Christmas goodies, and last year the sale netted $1,470.00. The money raised goes back to the Church or Missions. Think of these traditions when someone from the U.C.W. calls in late November to ask you to donate some delicious cookies!
