Huge crowd at the Exeter United Methodist Women Cookie Walk

Enjoying some coffee and a cookie after "shopping" at the cookie walk were from the left Jeannine Krejci, Doris Hall, Sue DeJonge (partially hidden) and Karen Chapman.

Cookie Monster couldn't have finished off the 120 dozen homemade cookies faster than the ladies who visited the annual Exeter United Methodist Women cookie walk.

Opening at 9:00, by 9:30 a.m. the ladies who were placing the cookies on trays for the walk had emptied all of their containers. Each year the ladies think they have made too many cookies and each year they sell out of the homemade holiday treats.

During the event they also host a dried fruit and nut sale of very high quality products. The sale draws guests from all over Exeter and many of the surrounding communities and counties. A variety of tins were available for purchase and then each tin purchaser could pick the cookies along several tables to fill their tin.

After making their purchases many of the patrons chose to enjoy the free cookies and refreshments while taking some time to fellowship.
