Grange hosts annual Baking Contest and Auction; open to all

Jan 31st, 2015 | Category: News

BELLINGHAM – The Grange is hosting their annual Baking Contest and Auction on Tuesday, Feb. 17, and public submissions and bids are welcome. The long-time favorite categories of breads, cakes, cookies and brownies are available, as well as new categories for pies, gluten free items, and decorated items. Entry in the contest is open to everyone in Whatcom County, men and women, young and old. Grange membership not required.  Recipes need not be original (i.e., recipes from cookbooks are welcome).  Entries are due between 10 a.m. and noon on the 17th. That same evening at the Grange, a potluck dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Following dinner, an auction of the day’s entries will begin. You need not attend the dinner in order to attend the auction. The auction will begin at approximately 6:45 p.m. This year’s county-wide event will be held at Ten Mile Grange, 6958 Hannegan Road, just north of the Pole Road.  As the requirements vary for each category, it is important to obtain a copy of the Entry Rules, which are available by logging on to www.wa-grange.org and click on “2015 Program Handbook.”  Winners at the local level are invited to re-submit their entries at the State Grange Convention in June, where cash prizes are awarded. For more information, contact Edith Ward at (360) 398-1296.
