It’s my most favorite time of the year. That is not to say that this writer does not enjoy all my time at the Fayette County Museum. I do. Every visit is an adventure.
Just this past summer, I met Gina and Brad and their family. They had no idea the Museum displayed so many artifacts from Fayette County’s history. Then there was the elderly gentleman, Harold, who wandered through the basement with me and I didn’t want him to leave. He taught me so much about the tools stored there. And, there were the veterans who so graciously shared their military stories with me, giving me a deeper understanding of what service to your country means.
However, it is the annual Cookie Sale at the Fayette County Museum that is my favorite time of the year. The aroma of sugar permeates the building. Those who donate cookies and candy for this annual event are absolutely the most skilled at baking. Proof of that statement lies in the fact that last year was a sellout. Not one cookie left over!
It is the easiest and most economic way to get all of your holiday baking done in one day. The proceeds go toward the upkeep of the building.
This year’s sale date is Saturday, Dec. 5, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Admission to the sale is free and you will have assistance carrying your purchases to your vehicle. The cost is $6 per pound. The address is 517 Columbus Ave. in Washington C.H.
Just one visit to the Museum’s annual Cookie Sale and you will agree. It will be your favorite time of the year, too!
