A total of 13 cooking teams competed in the 29th annual CountryFest Stew Cook Off Contest. The auction of the winning stews earned $1,950 for the sponsoring Franklin County Chamber of Commerce.
“This is one of our biggest fund raisers each year,” Chamber Manager Diane Newsom said. “It was great watching how all the cooks, sponsors, bidders, judges, volunteers, and stew buyers worked together to support the Chamber.” For more information, see the October 17 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
