Cookie Walk & Bake Sale

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 11th, 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 will also be on the sale tables to treat yourself or all those lucky folks on your holiday shopping list!

New this year and a special treat, private chef, Patti Ostrander will be offering take-out “Soup & Bread” menu! Your choice of Beef-Barley-Portabella Mushroom Soup or Maple Butternut Squash Bisque will be available to purchase in 16oz and 32oz size heatproof containers and come with slices of her delicious homemade breads in heat sealed bags. 

To accommodate our shoppers, this year’s event is being held at the larger and accessible City of Hamilton Bedford Building, 223 S. 2nd Street in Hamilton with elevator service to the second floor and plenty of parking available.  Doors will be open 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 11th.   Plan to come early for the best selection since this event has sold out early in the past four years! 

All proceeds from the sale will be used by BRHA to assist animals in need throughout the coming year.  For more information contact Mary at 642-3785 or email at dogmommary@aol.com
