For many, when they think of the annual Apple and Pork Festival, gingerbread men come to mind.
Patty Klemm, with the Waynesville Women's Club, indicated while many groups went ahead and sold their food anyway, they were unable to do so due to the nature of the gingerbread cookies.
Klemm notes they bake approximately 8,00 to 9,000 cookies each year. A favorite for many, Klemm is surprised just how famous the cookies have become.
The Waynesville Women's Club uses the funds from the Apple and Pork weekend to fund many activities in Waynesville as well as DeWitt County and the Olympia school district.
Klemm says the Waynesville Women's Club donated to the DeWitt County Museum Association in place of the Apple and Pork Festival.
