Dena VanAntwerp actually made two pies to enter in the annual Apple Pie Contest at the Bite of Beaver Food Fest.
However, while she was getting ready to head to the parish hall with her entries, boyfriend Jude Martin saw the delectable treats cooling on the table and helped himself to a hearty slice of one of them.
Dena brought the other pie to the festival and it was the first place winner! Dena won a beaver beer coozie from Flat Tale Furs, a wicker and ceramic sauce holder from Dalwhinnie’s Kitchen Shop and a bouquet of flowers from Beaver Island Gardens.
Second place went to Laura Green. Judges for this year’s event were from the cast and crew of the Community Players November 9th production: Jon Fiegen, Jeff Powers, Jenna Wilk and Chad Helmer.
