Slow Food Sonoma Valley and the Sonoma Valley Grange will host the third annual holiday celebration and cookie exchange from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, at the grange hall, 18627 Sonoma Highway.

Come share in giving and gifting back to the community. Bring a friend and get to know Slow Food Sonoma Valley and the Sonoma Grange Members. Be part of the excitement growing in the Springs with the Grange Hall Renovation Project.

Participants are asked to bring three-dozen of your favorite holiday cookies and if inspired, the group welcomes your contribution of a favorite soup or stew for the potluck.

Bring your cookies on a platter labeled with your name for easy return or an eco-friendly disposable container.

Take home two-dozen cookies of your choice from the community cookie exchange throughout the evening.

Bring one dozen cookies in a separate bag or container labeled with the kind of cookie to donate.

If inspired, bring a hearty crockpot of soup or stew to share.

The group will “gift back” one-dozen cookies from each person’s bundle to Meals on Wheels and the Brown Baggers to include with their holiday meals.

There will be non-alcoholic cider and several pots of warm hearty soups. Bring wine, beer or drinks of your choice to share. The group supplies the glasses and everything else. Live music will be provided.
