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 on Saturday, Dec. 2th, 2023! In the last couple of days, 1000s of cookies have been arriving at St. Thomas More Church in Manhattan, KS. Every year there is a highlighted cookie and I can't wait to see what they have this year!
The event starts at 8:30 am and will last until 11 am or when the cookies run out. As you enter the hall you are provided with a container to fill as you peruse the tables of ALL the cookies that have been donated! Once you have selected the perfect cookies and sweets, you head to the cash register and have your cookies weighed for check-out. The cookies sell for $6.50/pound and it is a perfect way to get your sweets ready for the holiday.
This event is one of the many reasons that I love this town. All the cookies that you see at the Cookie Carousel have been donated by parishioners and the proceeds are donated to various local charities. Not that I NEED a reason to buy cookies, but I can't think of a better reason to buy cookies than charity!!
