Hello Trophy Club! Get ready for an amazing event! We are having a resident COOKIE EXCHANGE!

When: December 13th 11:00am - 2:00pm
Where: Trophy Club Country Club
Why: Why not?

No really….here are some of the reasons you should hold this date for you and your family to attend….

  • It is time to have some fun, get to know your neighbors and partake in some holiday festivities together.
  • Get some really great cookies ( I hear we have some real pro’s here in town!)
  • This is an event that is more than just cookies! This event will benefit Christ Haven’s Children’s Home!

What do you need to do in order to participate? You will need to bake 3 dozen cookies. 1 dozen will be for the cookie exchange for people to take share and take home (we will have a “nut-free” table set up). 1 dozen is for the event to share and eat while you mingle! 1 dozen will be delivered to Christ Haven’s Children’s home. If perhaps you don’t want to bake a 3rd dozen or just don’t have the time in this very festive but busy time of the year, we would ask for a 5 dollar donation at the door. This will all go to Christ Haven’s as well.

We will have an Angel Tree of envelopes set up at the cookie exchange if you feel you would like to donate to Christ Haven’s and their wish list.
We have some wish list items we would like to fulfill! Christ Haven's is in need of many items such as:

  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Diapers
  • Shampoo
  • Body wash and soap and more

A complete list of items you can bring with you for donation will be forthcoming in an up and coming flyer.

Trophy Club Country Club is amazing! They will be helping in EVERY way! They will be setting up an entire refreshment bar which will include Hot Cocoa, Cider, snacks and more! We even hope to have a fun and festive holiday movie showing during the Cookie exchange! There will be a cookie decorating station with lots of fun for the kids! If you have a teenager who is looking for some community volunteer hours, please message me! This is a wonderful and fun opportunity to earn 3 hours of community service!

Also, I would like you to know that while you are at the Cookie Exchange, if you are not a member, please feel free to pick up the information for your complimentary 90 day social membership at the club. Yep you heard me. complimentary! HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL.

If you know for sure you will be coming, PLEASE confirm your participation with the Country Club and leave a message for:

*Don’t forget to mention if you have a teenager who will volunteer at the cookie decorating station!
