First United Methodist Church cookie walk

ESCANABA — The folks of First United Methodist Church of Escanaba are planning a cookie walk for Saturday, Dec. 10, starting at 9:30 a.m. and going until the goodies are gone — which usually happens in a couple of hours.

This is the church’s first cookie walk since 2019, and the bakers are looking forward to the event. In addition to cookies, there will be other baked goods such as breads, and a craft sale will also take place with a variety of items. A table will be set with coffee and free samples of cookies, and some cookie tins/containers will be available for folks who want to use them instead of a box.

Cookies are sold by the pound, the same as in 2019.

First United Methodist Church is located at 302 S. 6th St. For more information, call the church office at 786-3713.

ESCANABA — Blue Christmas, a free community event for those dealing with loss or grieving this Christmas season, will take place Thursday, Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. at the Heirman Joseph University Center at Bay College in room 952.

Anyone affected by loss is welcome to attend the event, where ways to celebrate the season despite grief and move forward with hope will be discussed.

The event is sponsored by the Delta County Victim Service Unit.
