Church to hold cookie event

The First Congregational Church in New Milford will offer a holiday cookie decorating event Dec. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Attendees are asked to bring a dozen cookies; decorations, music and hot cocoa will be provided.

In addition, residents are asked to bring a donation of toiletry items for a family to "fill the manger" for those in need.

The event will take place on the lower level of the Marsh Parish House behind the 36 Main St. church.
