The cookie dough ready, plans complete for Santa's arrival
space
Mike and Sheila Pavek, Antigo Bakery owners along with all their helpers took time from baking Christmas cookies and holiday goodies to encourage everyone to stop at the Salvation Army tent on the corner of Clermont and Fifth Avenue during the chili cookoff and Christmas parade Wednesday in downtown Antigo.

The Paveks are continuing a 10-year tradition of donating chocolate chip cookie dough to be baked by Salvation Army volunteers in Optimist Club ovens and served to everyone coming downtown for the festivities. The smell of warm cookies baking mixes delightfully with the aroma of spicy peppers and hamburger that will be filling the Avenue throughout the day.

“The cookie dough donated by Antigo Bakery brings smiles to everyone visiting the Salvation Army tent for cookies and is leveraged into generous donations” Bill Kelly, Salvation Army volunteer coordinator, said. “Their generosity continues to be an important ingredient to Salvation Army success in Langlade County.”

Kelly added that the fresh baked cookies along with hot chocolate continue to be one of the highlights during the chili cookoff. Salvation Army volunteers have already been busy ringing bells at kettles around town with more ringers needed between now and Christmas Eve to meet local emergency needs.

Kelly encouraged everyone to stop at the Salvation Army booth anytime after 11 a.m. on Wednesday to enjoy a cookie, hot chocolate, then stop at the Optimist cheese curd trailer being operated by Boys and Girls Club volunteers followed by the gala nighttime parade.

The 21st annual cookoff gets underway at 8 a.m. and soon afterwards the spicy smells of peppers and hamburger will be wafting down the avenue as chefs prepare their secret concoctions.

Sampling begins at 5:30 p.m. in traditional and roughneck varieties.

At 6 p.m. there will be a Community Tree-Lighting at Yesterday's Sign Park, corner of Fifth Avenue and Clermont Street.

At 6:30 p.m. the Community Christmas Parade, with the theme “Music Notes and Holiday Floats,” will travel down Fifth Avenue, through downtown. Santa will arrive at the parade's conclusion, and kick off a fun-filled holiday season. He'll also be in attendance at the fire house, along with the high school band, after the parade. Cookies and hot chocolate will be available.

He'll start regular hours at the Langlade County Historical Society Museum a few days later,on Saturday, Dec. 8.
