Heritage Days Pie Contest winners
The Cowboy Fellowship of Atascosa County celebrated its ninth anniversary with a weekend full of rodeos, exhibits, and fun on May 11-12. A community pie contest was part of the weekend’s event. There were 43 entries in the four categories. Judges had the difficult job of choosing the best pie in each category and a grand prize winner. The winners were awarded a variety of prizes for their hard work.
The grand prize, an upright freezer donated by Lowe’s, was awarded to Myrtle LaGrange.
Other winners in the contest included:
Nut category -- Terri Dumas, first; Shelby Hill, second; and Betty Wier, third.
Fruit category -- Susan Dees, first; Betty Wier, second; and James Kiser, third.
Berry category -- Leah Walker Rickaway, first; Marinan Keeling, second; and James Kiser, third.
Cream pies -- Candace Rodriguez, first; Betty Wier, second; and Elaine Rutherford, third.
After the judging, the pies were cut and sold to the happy crowd at the Heritage Days celebration. Everyone agreed that the contest was a huge success in its first year. The pie contest team, the judges, the bakers, and the prize donors did an outstanding job.
