The 2019 Chester Holiday Cookie Tour presented a check for $800 on Friday, Dec. 21, to the Chester-Andover Family Center to help them in their mission of aiding local individuals and families in need.

Present for the occasion was organizer Cynthia Prairie, Family Center past President Nena Nanfeldt and several of the nine families who opened their Stone Village homes to more than 100 visitors for the Dec. 8 Cookie Tour, including Michael and Joanne Young, Ed Grossman and Bonnie and Lew Watters

The balance of the proceeds have gone toward the 2020 Overture to Christmas fund.

This was the third year of the Cookie Tour and the first time it was hosted in the Stone Village. The event allows visitors to tour a number of historic and interesting homes and sample homemade cookies.

    The Cookie Tour was such fun! I loved seeing inside the homes, meeting the owners and sampling the cookies. It was nice to have cookies to take home, too. Since we will be moving into the neighborhood in the New Year, it was great meeting our soon-to-be-neighbors. The whole event was well done with good signage and parking. I just suggest more publicity for future years, but then it might get too crowded! So glad a generous donation went to the Chester Andover Family Center.
