“We’re excited to partner with Dewey’s Bakery to help in achieving our goal of raising money toward the purchase of playground equipment for the Boonville Community Park,” said Debbie Cooper, Secretary and Treasurer of the BBDDA. “Bringing back life into the park and downtown areas have been a goal for the BBDDA.”

Dewey’s Moravian baked goods have been a treasured holiday tradition since the bakery opened in downtown Winston-Salem in 1930. Moravian Cookies were even hand-selected by Oprah Winfrey and featured in O, The Oprah Magazine’s coveted “O List.” Dewey’s remains faithful to the origins of these time-honored classics, continuing to bake in the homemade tradition using original recipes and the finest ingredients.
