Kootenai Brown Bake sale a sweet success

Josh Davis

Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village held its third annual bake sale on Sunday December 6, 2015. The largest bake sale in Pincher Creek history serves as a fundraiser for the Pincher Creek Historical Society. Its was the Historical Societies best fundraiser of the year in 2014, and according to Pincher Creek and District Historical Society President Colleen Casey Cyr it was on track to be even better this year.

"It gets a little bigger every year," said Cyr. "We had about 750 dozen cookies and squares this year, five dozen kinds of pies, breads and mini-loaves, and it's awesome. Its been a phenomenal day."

"We have a really reliable group of volunteers. We pick out all the recipes as a group about a month before the event, and then they just go to making cookies," said Cyr. "Its been a really good year, and the gift shop has been busy. We've had an awesome day. We're getting everybody into the Christmas spirit, and it certainly helps a lot to have a bake sale."

"We'll do the fourth annual next year, the first Sunday in December, and we'll be celebrating our 50th anniversary with a new cookbook next year. There's just an awesome group of volunteers that get together, that really care about the museum, and really care that its successful."

"Its a good way to get your Christmas shopping done," said museum KBPV Curator Farley Wuth. "Its a fantastic event. Wuth said the turnout was good. "We opened at 11 o'clock and there was people waiting at the door, and its been steady all day and all that."

"The gift shop is open during the week when the Museum is open. We're open until the 24th for Christmas shopping. So if you want to come down here and buy crafts or souvenirs or nature books you're more than welcome to do so."
