Christmas Cookie Sale Benefits Historical Society

The Port Washington Historical Society will sell cookies Dec. 10 to raise money for upkeep of the historic light station museum.

The date is set for the 's biggest fundraiser, a day-long Christmas cookie sale.

The volunteer-run historical society operates a resource center with historical archives and artifacts, and a museum at the historic light station that draws many visitors to the area. The cookie fundraiser will run Dec. 10.

Historical Society Board Member Judie Jacoby said they plan to use some of the money raised to support basic maintenance of the museum, such as heat, water and electricity.

Jacoby said they have done the cookie sales at least two years before with success.

"It was one of our first and only money makers," Jacoby said.

Jacoby said there are about 50 residents who are members of the historical society, with about a dozen active members who will likely bake the cookies.

The event will be 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Historical Society at 311 N. Johnson St.
