American Cookie Co. Turns 30

by Christa Smith

Crowds were all over the Lufkin mall today to join in the celebration of the America Cookie Company's birthday.  Festivities included a giant birthday cake door prizes and a special cookie cake eating contest.

The winner works at Y100 and says it was a no brainer that he would enter.  "They joke around and say I'm the resident eater at the station so they told me about the competition and the fact that it was going to charity and I was like ok, I'll do it," Jerry Mouse said.

The proceeds of today's event were given to the Mosaic Center in Lufkin.  They couldn't been more excited to be a part of today's event.  They even participated in the cookie eating contest.  Though they didn't win, they say it was all worth it.
