At the annual Christmas luncheon this week hosted by the Old Mission Women’s Club, Janis Haine brought along a box of her gorgeous Christmas cookies. While these particular cookies are not the ones that will be raffled off at the Old Mission Women’s Club cookie sale tomorrow, they are a fine example of what the winner will get. But you have to buy a raffle ticket for $5 or five raffle tickets for $20.
The beloved cookie sale – a treasure trove of every kind of delicious cookie, along with assorted breads, candies and other treats – is happening at the Peninsula Township Hall, 13235 Center Road, tomorrow from 8 a.m. until they sell out (hint: get there early).
Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

The cookies sell for $8/lb., and the club supplies the boxes, as well. They also accept cash, checks and – new this year – major credit cards.
Now, about that raffle. The prize is a holiday gift box filled with five dozen – yes, FIVE DOZEN – beautifully-decorated cookies and truffles made by Janis Haine, a professional caterer and baker whose cookie-baking skills are legendary. Here’s a closer look at the cookies and truffles…
Janis is also one heck of a marketing person, not to mention a creative genius. Oh, and a lovely person to spend time with whose gorgeous cats made our “Cats of Old Mission Peninsula” calendar two years in a row!
If you are the lucky winner of the raffle, you’ll not only get all those cookies and truffles to delight all your friends and family, but you’ll also have the warm feeling of knowing that you’re helping to support the club’s charitable projects right here in our community. (Full disclosure: I’m a member and they do a LOT of good works in the community. The club began in 1931 and is still going strong.)
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Old Mission Women’s Club cookie committee member Lois Manigold, (231) 223-7212.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP.
