Virtual ‘Spice It Up’ community gingerbread decorating contest Dec. 18

On Friday, Dec. 18, from 12–3 p.m., the community is invited to “Spice it Up” with the Living Proof Recovery Center and join in on a tasty holiday tradition. The Center, with its new location on Rowan College of South Jersey’s (RCSJ) Gloucester campus, is hosting a virtual gingerbread decorating contest – held via Zoom and open to anyone interested in some safe, seasonal cheer.

The “Spice It Up” gingerbread decorating contest is a free event, although registration is required to participate. Registered participants will be emailed instructions to secure their contest packet with all the supplies needed to craft a gingerbread masterpiece, available for pick up at the Living Proof Recovery Centers in Voorhees or Sewell. On Dec. 18, confectionary competitors can log into Zoom with their supply packet ready and pit their gingerbread decorating skills against one another as they vie for contest prizes and enjoy some socially distanced comradery.

Living Proof Recovery Center – a substance recovery program offered through the Center for Family Services – opened their second location on RCSJ’s Gloucester campus in September 2020. Operating out of the College’s Workforce Development building, along with their main office in Voorhees, the Center offers an array of free peer-led, volunteer-driven support programs for individuals considering, entering or already in recovery. While many of Living Proof’s workshops and support meetings have shifted to a virtual format due to COVID-19, in-person meetings are still being hosted by appointment where appropriate.
