Last Tuesday some island residents got together to prepare boxes of cookies for our beloved helpers here on Dewees.
After a night of baking, we had made a variety of 40 dozen cookies ranging from pecan pralines to chocolate pretzels.
The boxes were decorated to the nines (thanks to the island kids) and arrays of sugary goodies were all lined up like little toy soldiers ready for battle.
We all gathered around the Jakes’ dining room table to assemble the boxes.
When they were filled to the brim we packed them up and delivered to the ferry office and to public works.
Joyous grins filled the faces of the people we love and lean on everyday when they received the holiday goodies.
