Dear Friends & Family of Gingerbread Players:

As you may know, one of the most beloved traditions of The Gingerbread Players is the sale of homemade gingerbread during intermission. In addition to providing our audiences with the delicious treats, it is a fun activity for the cast members and the volunteers from St. Luke's Church. The proceeds support St. Luke's and its outreach projects in the community. We invite you to help by volunteering to bake and/or sell gingerbread at any of the performances. Cookie cut-outs are fun to make, but easy loaf and pan cakes are also great. The box mixes are delicious and very easy to prepare.

Please contact Louise Foisy
[if you have questions or need any further gingerbread baking tips.]

Thank you very much!
