CAKE & PIE AUCTIONS--The auctions are sponsored by Ohio Valley Federal Credit Union and Grant’s Farm and Greenhouses.

The Dept. 3 Chair & staff wishes to acknowledge and thank all who participated last year. As always, part of this money went back to the exhibitors who baked the cakes and pies, part to a scholarship (see below), and the remainder was used by the fair board for capital improvements as well as subsidizing the 4-H and FFA Junior Fair activities.


SPECIAL SCHOLARSHIP – From the proceeds of the auctions, a $500.00 scholarship is offered each year to a Jr. Fair Exhibitor who graduated that year and who will be attending college in the fall, majoring in a culinary, nutrition, dietary, or other related field of study. The scholarship is named in honor of Ceil Bee, a long time worker and supporter of not only the Bakery and Pantry Department but of many activities sponsored by the Board. As in past years, the Cake Auction will be Tuesday night at 6:00 p.m. in the Multi Purpose Building and the Pie Auction on Thursday night, same time, same place. Your support of these auctions is appreciated. The 2016 scholarship was awarded to Ariel Johnson.
