BLACKFOOT â€“ They werenâ€™t exactly a swarm of locusts, but those who attended the Emanuel Lutheran Cookie Festival on Saturday quickly got what they wanted.
â€śI knew to get here at 11 because theyâ€™re gone in a hurry,â€ť said Jeanne Hoover. â€śI come to get good cookies and to help support the charities.â€ť
The sale of the cookies was scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. but the selection was best for those who came at opening time.
Many people have been coming for many years. The Festival was in its 18th year.
Juell Stewart, however, was a first-time attendee.
