Entrants should deliver 14 (one dozen plus two) of their favorite holiday cookies, along with the recipe, to Postmaster Linda Dillard, Clallam Bay Post Office, 17203 state Highway 112, Suite 1, Clallam Bay, WA 98326.
Entries must be received at the post office by 9 a.m. Thursday to be judged.
Don't forget to include a recipe card with your 14 cookies.
In addition to cookies from Clallam Bay-Sekiu residents, entries in past contests have come from as far away as Sequim and Port Townsend.
Judges will taste the cookies, and the winners in various categories will be announced during the Clallam Bay Post Office's annual Customer Appreciation Day on Thursday.
Winners will be notified and will receive gifts — a cookie jar, Christmas cook books and potholders — and their recipes will appear in the Peninsula Daily News.
All the cookies will be served to parents and children as they get their pictures taken with Santa Claus as part of Customer Appreciation Day.
To get a picture with Santa — he'll be at the post office from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday — bring $1 and a can of food or $2 without a can of food.
The money and canned food will go to the local food bank, said Dillard.
There will also be holiday photos from past years of local residents on the walls of the post office.
For more information, phone Dillard at 360-963-2553 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
