The Rotary Pavilion was full Friday night, September 30, for the Coshocton County Fair Baked Goods Auction. The auction items included all classes of baked goods that were judged earlier in the day. All ribbon winners were auctioned off by Greg Rice.
Cakes, muffins, breads, cookies and candies were for sale and competition was fierce for certain items. All proceeds from the auction are shared between the person who prepared the food and the art room to be used for improvements in the building. The next project for the hall is to paint, now that the roof has been replaced.
Terri Lewis and her daughter, Mindi Duncan, have been selling baked goods for about four years. Lewis was at the auction Friday night to see how much each of their ribbon-winning treats sold for. “We’ve each won a best of show before, but never in the same year. This year, we have three best of show between us. Lewis said it was fun competing against his daughter. “We used to cook everything at her house, but we ran out of space.”
Lewis is thrilled with how she and Duncan have placed this year. Lewis had 14 ribbon-winning items in the auction, including his best zucchini bread and his best buns. Duncan won a best of show for his banana bread and had nine items in the auction. “Some of the classes we go into are the same, but not all of them,” Lewis said.
She also said she watched the judging of ready meals on Friday morning. “It’s fun to watch.”
