“Cookie Walk, Bake Sale & More!

 In Hamilton at the Elks Lodge, Saturday December 8th, 2018

You won’t want to miss this event…this is not your ordinary bake sale! Do yourself a favor this holiday season and skip all the fuss of baking those holiday sweet treats and waiting in long lines to buy gifts by attending this unique “Cookie Walk, Bake Sale & More” on Saturday, December 8th, hosted by the Bitter Root Humane Association.

Talented area bakers have been busy whipping up their favorite holiday cookies in every flavor, shape and size.  Shoppers can tour the cookie tables and choose their favorites in any quantity (sold by the pound) and stock up on all the other individually priced sweet treats of pies, cakes, breads & candies.. and of course there will also be goodies for our four legged furry friends!  To round out the event, some great gift & decorating items, including unusual cookie jars & tins, handmade holiday stockings, holiday jewelry, beautiful decorated “live” swags & potted South African Amaryllis plants along with whimsical pet items will also be on the sale tables to treat yourself or all those lucky folks on your holiday shopping list!

To accommodate our shoppers, more cashiers will be on hand and this year’s event is being held at the larger Elk’s Lodge, located at 203 State Street in Hamilton;  the doors will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 8th.   Plan to come early for the best selection since this event has sold out in the past!

All proceeds from sale will be used by BRHA to assist animals in need throughout the coming year.  For more information or to pre-order premade cookie gift platters contact Mary at 642-3785 or email at
