The new decade doesn’t have to mean the holiday festivities are over.
The Alpharetta Police Department wants the celebrations to continue after New Year’s Day with some of the city’s youngest residents.
On Jan. 2 from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m., the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety invites parents to bring their children to the department’s free Kid’s Holiday Cookie Decorating party. Hosted at BrewAble Cafe inside the city recreation center, the coffee spot will provide hot chocolate as kids decorate their festive treats. The cafe is also a sponsor of the event and APD will provide cookies and supplies for the activity.
But it’s not just cookie decorating happening on Thursday. Giveaways are also in store.
That BrewAble is sponsoring the kid-friendly event should come as no surprise. The coffee shop, which opened in 2019, is a volunteer-run community effort that Jeanette Dümmer started when she reflected on her own son’s future. Dümmer’s son is autistic and with BrewAble, she envisioned a place where adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities can do meaningful work while integrating with the community.
