The Roselle Park PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) will be sponsoring their First Annual Cooke Swap Party at 7 p.m. on Monday, December 9th, at the Roselle Park High School (RPHS) Cafeteria.
For those unfamiliar with a Cookie Swap Party, it is a gathering where each person makes enough of one kind of cookie to share – kind of like a potluck but multiplied by cookies – then the cookies are traded and packaged so everyone leaves with finished gifts and new recipes.
Those interested in this particular Cookie Swap Party are asked to bring – at least – 36 individually wrapped, home-baked cookies in a disposable container, with 36 copies of an accompanying recipe willing to be shared with others. Party-goers can bring more than one cookie but a recipe should accompany each cookie. Each recipe brought has to have the baker’s name on it, along with any additional information if desired. Cookie recipe are swapped and each person goes home with up to 36 different cookies and recipes. An extra container should be brought to take the cookies home in.
The donation for the event is $15 and is limited to those 18-years of age and older (RPHS students can also take part for $5). The event is sponsored by the RPHS PTSA but $5 will be sent to one or $5 each to two other PTA/PTO groups to those who have children who attend those related schools.
RSVP is asked no later than Friday, December 6th via Facebook (link) or by phone at (908) 875-9222.
