Ag Club pie auction raises $22,675
In preparation for the Central Missouri Ag Club Pie Contest Janice Klenke, the pie contest and banquet chair, gets approximately 26 pies ready for judging Saturday morning in the Pork House on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. The contest is sponsored by Bing’s Grocery Strores, both east and west.
It was the first time for Penny Pummill, of Sedalia, to be a judge in the Ag pie contest. “She asked me last year, but I’d just started my Healthy U journey,” Pummill said. The contest had five initial judges followed by four media judges who selected the grand champion pie from the first place winners.
Later that evening, the pies were auctioned off by Col. Glen Larue, of Sweet Springs, at the Ag Banquet. Holding a Snickers Bar pie is 4-H member, Sydney Anderson, of Tipton. Also shown are Janice Larue, seated, and Klenke. The grand champion pie titled, “Orchard Medley,” made by Sharon Bruner, of LaMonte, sold for $2,700 to Rob Toops of Green Ridge, with BASF, an Ag supply company.
