The 14th Annual Holiday Cookie Stroll will take place this year on Saturday, December 14, from 10:00-3:00, rain or shine, in historic Bass River, South Yarmouth. The Stroll offers a unique chance to visit homes in the heart of the Old Quaker Village of South Yarmouth, designated as a National Register Historic District. Strollers enjoy seeing the holiday decorations in the lovely homes and receive a delicious, homemade cookie at each of the primary stops.
This year’s stroll features seven private homes, the Bass River Yacht Club, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, and an Open House at the South Yarmouth Library, where cider and cranberry bread will be served. Additional places of interest will be open and offering different refreshments, including Bass River Shoe Repair, the Capt. Farris House, St. David’s Episcopal Church who will be serving lunch as well (for a nominal cost), and the South Yarmouth United Methodist Church. Free mini-bus transport will be available between the stops.
All proceeds benefit the South Yarmouth Library. Funds have provided such programs and materials as the Whoville Express, summer reading events, the Sunday author series, computers, (and loanable hotspots this year), as well as new print and eBooks.
Each year the Cookie Stroll honors someone who has been an active member of the South Yarmouth Library community. This year’s honorees will be Robert & Carol Ann Morris. Both have been long-time committee members for the Stroll, generous supporters to all the South Yarmouth Library programs and “Bookstore Bob” is the Treasurer for the South Yarmouth Library Association
