Cookie   Exchange

An extension of International Cooking interest group’s Cookie Exchange,
but with ALL of Coterie invited! We each brought several dozen of our cookies
and left with about the same number but of a varied assortment from all the cookies others bring.
Should be lots of fun, and you’ll leave with party-ready trays of cookies to serve or
put up in the freezer to take out when guests are coming!  Held in December 2017

Pete’s Pumpkin Patch with the Coterie Playgroups

A visit by several playgroup members and their children was held Tuesday October 17, 2017.    As part of our Children’s programs, Coterie sponsored the entry fee for parents and a child.  This had not been tried before, but seemed to be appreciated by all those attending and your Coterie Board was glad to support our members in an enjoyable event!    

Missouri S&T Football Tailgate

Coterie hosted a tailgate gathering for an S&T football game on Saturday October 21, 2017.  We started the tailgate well before dark at 4:30 p.m.; the game began at 7:00 p.m.
We met at in an area near the field right by the Football house in the S&T Allgood-Bailey Stadium parking lot.  Members tasted the 6 or more different chili offerings and a selection of sides and toppings.  All were good and we enjoyed them.  Around 20 adults and 15 children came and visited, enjoyed the pleasant weather and played bean bag or corn hole games.

Celebration of Nations, Celebrate Talent Competition, Sat. Sept. 30 is now past – it was a good show!
