COOKIE CARNIVAL CHANGE OF PLANS!! Due to the rise in cases of Covid 19, we would like everyone to remain safe on the Island, so our plans for Cookie Carnival are as follows. We will have Cookie Carnival BY ORDER ONLY. Orders can be picked up on December 12 from 11-2. If paying with a check, make it out to “BICC.” Order/price sheets will be placed around the community for you to pick up. Fill out the order with your name and phone # and take it to Kathy Speck. There will be a drop box on Kathy’s back deck ON PINE ST. for the order sheets. Orders can also be placed with Kathy by phone 448-2393. Order sheets will be placed for your convenience at the following businesses: McDonoughs Market, Community Center, Resale Shop, Island Energies Gas Station, Powers Hardware and on BI Christian Church website: bichristianchurch.com. All orders must be received by Kathy no later than Monday December 7th. We are very excited to be able to fill the homes in the community with all sorts of delicious treats for the Christmas season. We hope everyone will understand the reason for our decision. The best part is “We get to make cookies and you get to eat them.
