Kent Island Library is Champion of 2016 Cookie Walk
STEVENSVILLE – The Historic Stevensville Arts & Entertainment District’s 4th Annual Cookie Walk that held, December 3, and the Kent Island Library earns bragging rights for 2017.
As part of promoting Historic Stevensville as an Art & Entertainment District, events are held year round to bring locals and visitors to the area.
Participating businesses within Historic Stevensville compete by baking their favorite cookie recipes.
Visitors are invited to follow the cookie trail from business to business sampling cookies as they go. Each customer can vote for their favorite cookie, one dollar equals one vote. Funds raised in the Cookie Walk benefit the A & E District. The purpose is to raise awareness for the A & E district, fundraise and bring people to the district and into the local businesses.
At the end of the cookie walk the business that raised the most money is the winner of the Golden cookie Award. This year the winner was Queen Anne’s County Library, Stevensville Branch.
Following the Cookie Walk there was a festive musical performance by Broadneck High School held at Historic Christ Church. Musical performance included holiday vocal solos, violin and piano selections and trumpet soloist.
Ashley Chenault, the county’s interim tourism development manager, said, “Congratulations to winners. The event was successful in raising money for A&E and the library will reign as the Golden Cookie Awardee through November 2017.”
