CLALLAM BAY — The 11th annual Great Cookie Bake-off, sponsored by the Clallam Bay Post Office, is Thursday.

Entrants should deliver 14 (one dozen plus two) of their favorite holiday cookies — along with the recipe — to Postmaster Linda Dillard, Clallam Bay Post Office, 17203 state Highway 112, Suite 1, in Clallam Bay.

Entries must be received at the post office by 9 a.m. Thursday to be judged.

In addition to cookies from residents in the Clallam Bay-Sekiu area, entries in past contests have come from across the North Olympic Peninsula — Sequim, Port Angeles, Forks and Port Townsend.

Judges will taste the cookies, and the winners in various categories will be announced during the Clallam Bay Post Office's annual Customer Appreciation Day on Thursday.

Gifts as prizes

Winners will be notified and will receive gifts — a cookie jar, Christmas cookbooks and potholders — and their cookie recipes will appear in the Peninsula Daily News.

All the cookies will be served to parents and children as the children get their pictures taken with Santa Claus as part of Customer Appreciation Day.

Photo with Santa

To get a picture with Santa — he'll be at the post office from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday — bring $1 and a can of food or $2 without a can of food.

The money and canned food will go to the local food bank, said Dillard.

On the walls of the post office are holiday photos of local residents from past years.

For more information, phone Dillard at 360-963-2553 or email
