HUDSON, N.Y.–Members of the Columbia and Greene Teen Ambassadors 4-H Club got together last week to bake cookies as a community service project. They chose the local Salvation Army as the recipient because it has a meal program. The teens brought their mixed cookie dough to their meeting, where they baked and packed the cookies. They packed some in larger containers for the meal program and some in small containers to be given to individuals who may not be able to bake for themselves. The teens also created candy cane mice ornaments that were given with the cookies.
