Lions to sponsor cookie contest
Lansing Lions Club will again sponsor its Christmas Cookie Contest the weekend of the Mayor's Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.
The contest is open to everyone and the rules are simple: Submit two dozen Christmas- or holiday-themed cookies between 11a.m. and noon Saturday, Dec. 2, at the Lansing Community Center (basement of City Hall), 800 First Terrace. Include a detailed recipe with your name, address and phone number with your submission.
Cookies will be judged by officers of the Lansing Lions Club. The top three winners will be recognized during the Mayor's Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 3.
Cookies not consumed during judging will be wrapped as a "goodie bag" for children participating in the Children Light the Way parade prior to the Mayor's Christmas Tree Lighting.
