St. Joseph cookie, candy sale set Saturday

— Just in time for the Christmas season, the women of St. Joseph Altar Society are baking delicious cookies and making their favorite candies to be sold at their 11th annual Cookie and Candy Sale.

The goodies will be on sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at St. Joseph Catholic Church Parish Hall, 301 N. Virginia St.

Popular items sold in years past include chewy turtles made by Joan Pierret, creamy cranberry fudge by Rita Roller, owl cookies from Jan Bradley, and toffee by Donna Thompson.

The sale offers a wide variety of homemade candies and cookies. More than 100 women volunteer to make the goodies, so there will be plenty for sale, said Sue McBride, a member of the Altar Society.

“Plan ahead for the busy Christmas season — buy enough to freeze and let the St. Joseph women do your holiday baking,” McBride said in a media release.

The cost is $7 per pound.

The start of the sale takes place before two other events Saturday — the Christmas parade and the Christmas Home Tour.

“You will be amazed at the large variety of homemade sweets to choose from,” McBride said. “There’s something to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.”

Clergy vestments, altar cloths, candles, and flowers are a few of the items purchased with the proceeds from the sale. The Altar Society also supports the Infant Supply Closet, church youth group, and other necessities for the church.
