This year, the Martha Cook Cookies gathered to celebrate the 70th annual Messiah Dinner, The Spirit of December Past! This event is a way to welcome both the holiday season, and performers from Handel's Messiah orchestra performance! Kate and Carrie, this year's Messiah Co-Chairs, began planning the event in September! Fellow cookies have said that the event was "a success! Something I will never forget!" Alumnae shared their support over social media, commenting that we did not fail to meet their expectations for another wonderful celebration!
Every year there are different committees that the co-chairs organize in order to break up tasks to make the event successful! We have a favors, music, hors d'oeuvre, decorations, hostess, welcoming, and invitations committee! This year the favors were small globes of hot chocolate, and the invitations were made by one of our own cookies! It's incredible to live in a place where not only are all of the girls extremely talented, but it is fun to be able to capitalize on their talents at events such as this one!
As one of the co-chairs, I can say that I am extremely proud with how the event turned out! It was so much fun to be with all of my friends, and to have so much support. Below you will find more pictures from the evening, and some wonderful videos of a surprise performance and Martha Cook grace! For those of you who came to Messiah Dinner, thank you, and enjoy the pictures! <3
