Tama County Pork Producers to hold annual banquet Jan. 14

A pie baking contest and auction will be one of the highlights of the Tama County Pork Producers’ annual meeting scheduled for January 14 at the Gladbrook Memorial Building.

Renewing your membership will reserve you a meal at the banquet. If you would like to be a member or would like to attend our banquet, please notify a board member or you may do so at the door.

Registration and Social begin at 5:30 p.m. with the meal at 6 p.m.

Everyone is encouraged to enter the homemade pie baking contest. The pies may be brought to the banquet with you when you come. Each entry will be assigned a number and then the judging will begin.

Pie baking classes are as follows: Women’s (1 crust and 2 crust), Men’s, and Youth with a winner in each division and then an overall winner. The overall winner receives $100 with each individual winner receiving $50.

All pies will be auctioned off during the banquet. The proceeds will be used by the Tama County Pork Producers to sponsor the youth swine program and for sponsoring the swine show at the county fair. We also donate a percentage to the Tama County Sheriff’s canine dog program.

You need not be a pork producer member to enter. So give it a chance. You may be the BEST PIE BAKER IN TAMA COUNTY!!
