Phyllis Dempsey happily accepts a small bag of cookies from Anita Harry, a member of The Concourse Club of Palmerton as Connie Carlin, Director of Nursing at the Village at Palmerton looks on. The Concourse Club's traditional, Cookies for the Nursing Home for Valentines Day, was initiated approximately twenty years ago. Club members are asked to bake two dozen cookies without nuts. The cookies are then divided in to smaller, individual bags and hand-delivered to seven assisted living and nursing homes in the Palmerton/Lehighton area. This year 416 bags were made for the Cookies for the Nursing Home project which was organized by club members, Romaine Biege and Marge Porambo.
