RJWC Members Bake Cookies for Families at Lighthouse Path
On November 7th, with early holiday spirit, more than a dozen members of the Rochester Junior Women's Club gathered together to bake over 50 dozen cookies for the Lighthouse-PATH organization in Pontiac. The RJWC bakers enjoyed the day baking a delicious variety of cookies from the usual suspects like chocolate chip, peanut butter, sugar and oatmeal to the unique like Russian Tea cookies, lemon drops, and walnut bars. The ladies of RJWC plan to make this an annual tradition.
The residents of Lighthouse-PATH were thrilled to have trays of cookies arrive on a sunny afternoon. “The families we have were so happy and pleased to get the cookies. They were just filled with so much joy when they saw all the cookies; and grateful that someone would take the time to make so many homemade cookies for them. It always touches my heart to see the families so filled with happiness when folks do such personable acts to lift our families up," Tia Cobb, Executive Director of Lighthouse PATH
