Christmas will be celebrated early in Auburn on Saturday, December 8, beginning with the annual Christ-mas Cookie Sale at the Auburn Community Library. From 9 a.m. to noon, you can purchase a variety to take home for your family. Cookies will be sold for $2.50 per baker’s dozen.
Later that day, the annual Auburn Old-fashioned Christmas Party will take place at the Community Center, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. It is sponsored by the Bennett Family, Auburn Lions Club, Auburn Community Center Association and the Washburn Rural High School ROTC. The event is designed for children and their families.
Participants will enjoy a carnival atmosphere, Santa and Mrs. Claus, as well as a chili/soup supper from 4:30-6 p.m. Activities are free of charge but donations of winter wear accessories and nonperishable foods will be accepted for the YWCA’s Safety & Empowerment Center serving women and children as well as the Auburn Community Food Pantry.
