Gingerbread houses needed

MOORE — Gingerbread house bakers are being sought for Aging Services, Inc.'s 4th Annual Gingerbread House Competition and silent auction. The event has been set for Dec. 7 at the Moore Public Library, 225 S. Howard from 5-7 p.m.

Kathleen Wilson, Executive Director of Aging Services, Inc., says there will be a celebrity panel of judges on tap to judge the gingerbread house entries in six categories including, corporate, professional (for those engaged in culinary arts or bakery businesses), kit, team, family and adult. The best-of-show winner will receive an extra special prize, Wilson said, with the winners being announced shortly before 7 p.m.

Entrants, who wish to do so, may donate their gingerbread creations to the silent auction, which is held to raise funds to benefit Aging Services, Inc. The competition is held in conjunction with Christmas in Old Town and the Moore Public Library and Holiday Gala events. To obtain an entry form, call Aging Services at 405-321-3200.

“It's a really fun way to start off the holiday season,” Wilson said. “It's for a good cause, it helps our organization; there will be cookies and hot drinks and other activities in the library and community center. It's a great evening for family to come out together.”

Aging Services, Inc., is a county-wide service agency that helps people maintain their independence by providing congregant meal sites five days a week, a county-wide meal delivery program, case management and housekeeping services among other services. A durable medical equipment lending closet and senior transportation busses in Norman and Moore are also available. Services are provided free of charge on a donation-only basis. To receive services, call the Aging Services, Inc. office at 321-3200. An outreach worker will schedule a visit to assess needs and suggest services either through Aging Services, Inc. or another agency.
