It's BACK!!!! One of my favorite days of the year, the Cookie Carousel at St. Thomas More Church in Manhattan, Ks will be held Saturday, Dec. 4th, 2021! In the last couple of days, 1000s of cookies have been arriving at St. Thomas More Church in Manhattan, KS. This year the highlighted cookie is the Oreo Truffle!
The event starts at 8:30 am and will last until 11 am unless they run out of cookies prior to that time. As you enter the hall you are provided with a container to fill as you peruse the tables and ALL the variety of cookies! Once you have selected the perfect ones, simply head to the cash register and have your cookies weighed to check-out. The cookies sell for $6.50/pound.
Last year the event was still held but as a drive-thru event. This year it is back but they will require gloves and masks provided by the Church. All the cookies are donated by parishioners and the proceeds from the cookie sales are then donated to local charities. This year the charities that will benefit Be Able, Konza Table, Shepherd's Crossing, and Catholic Charities.
Not that I NEED a reason to buy cookies, but I can't think of a better reason to buy cookies than charity!!
