DubachSchool.jpg

Every year for the past five years the ladies from Fellowship Baptist Church in Dubach prepare 175 apple- shaped cookies for every student, teacher and staff member at Dubach School.
Carla Watts, Henry Watts and Carol Hartwell deliver these cookies to each class along with juice.
Each cookie is iced in red icing for the apple, green for the leaves, and a brown stem.
The amount of time that Fellowship church members spend cooking, icing and packaging the cookies is appreciated.
This is such a sweet way for our students to begin their year at Dubach School.
