WPWC Cookbook– Thank you to Stacy M., Lisa A. and Lynne M. who did a phenomenal job of coordinating our 50th Anniversary Cookbooks. We sold quite a few at the fair. They are full of your wonderful recipes, are only $10 and a great idea for a gift!

West End Fair– What a wonderful celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the West End Fair. There was so much to see and do throughout the week. The 100th Anniversary Cake made from hay bales, huge 4×4 ft. Wooden Quilt Block painted by local artists, and Anniversary Quilt made by Sharon Gower and Shelba Scheffner were just some of the awesome items on display. A special thank you to our club’s fair committee, Fern S., Darlene B., Lisa A. and Shirley C. who spent countless hours before, during and after the fair to make sure everything ran smoothly. Also, thank you to many of our club’s members and members of Effort Methodist Church who helped staff the stand throughout the week. Our own, Judy S., even made TV Channel 13 news to promote our strawberry shortcake. Financially, it was a huge success, thanks to the crowds we had every day except for a rainy Monday. Mary M. will have a detailed report as soon as she receives all the bills. The only leftover for sale is our salad dressing which will be at our Sept. meeting.

Group Display– Congratulations to Bonnie P. and Isabel P. for another Blue Ribbon Display that depicted what our club does for our community. We received a check in the amount of $170 for their winning entry. Thanks, ladies for sharing your time, talent and creativity!!

Decorations Back of Stand– Kudos to Sharon and Jim G. for decorating the back of our food stand with picket fence, hay bales, corn stalks and flowers. Along with the bench, in memory of Margaret Kluk, and the pad, made with pavers by Darryl and Fern S., the area in back of our stand was so inviting and beautiful.

Lost and Found – A gray Carhartt Baseball Cap was left in the stand and can be claimed by calling Pat M.
