An unexpected knock at the door is typically not the most welcome thing in the world — but it would be if it were always just your neighbor with a batch of fresh-baked, homemade cinnamon rolls.
That was the case this past weekend, as members of the Hope Village Residents Association went door-to-door delivering fresh, gooey, individually wrapped treats — absolutely free to residents in the garden homes and cottages of the senior living community in south Canby.
I guess you could say that’s just how they roll.
Marketing Coordinator Tina Schimpf told The Canby Current that the treats were a gift from the residents association.
“It’s a tradition for the holiday bazaar,” she explained, referring to an annual fundraiser that was nixed this year due to Covid-19. “One of the residents has made them for years, and they sell them.
“Since we did not have the bazaar this year, they decided to make them anyway and just take them to all of the residents in the community.”
The secret chefs and delivery people included Dale Rushton, Carole Booker, Brenda Moots, Gerry Snavely and Delette Huffman.
All told, the crew whipped up nearly 18 dozen — or more than 210 — of the delicious delicacies and hand-delivered them to every corner of Hope Village.
Each one was helpfully labeled with a simple, friendly message: “Happy Autumn 🍁 from Your Residents Association Board.”
