TAUNY invites the community to join the Miller Family of DeKalb Junction for a drop-in sugar cookie making afternoon on Saturday, December 15 from 1:00-3:00 pm at The TAUNY Center in Canton. Cookie-making participants can drop in for as little or as long as you like to join in baking and decorating sugar cookies with John and Lynn Miller. This fun, family-friendly event will give guests a chance to use cookie cutters of all shapes and sizes from the extensive Miller Family collection. Dazzle, drizzle, and design to your heart’s content, and make sure to leave some room for sampling your creations! Guests will be able to design and taste or take home a few cookies each, with fresh batches continuing to come out as the afternoon goes on. All supplies will be provided. All ages are welcome. (Children must be supervised.) There is a $5 suggested donation for this program.
