Chili cook-off coming to Apple Shed
On Saturday, July 13, Raintree Arts Council held “Raintree Rocks the Shed” with dancing and singing of ‘50s & ‘60s music. Judith Bruce and Debbie Ingram, both of Bowling Green, were in charge.
Others who performed were Joyce Burris, of Bowling Green; Sabrina Gunn, from Clarksville, and currently a student at Central Missouri State; Brent Hammett, a Clopton graduate and currently a student at Truman State University; Jessica Hardling, from Troy; Karla Sippley, from Louisiana currently a student at Lindenwood University; Joey Sminchank, a Clopton graduate and currently a senior at Truman State University; Alyssa Talkington, from Bowling Green and currently a student at Truman State University; and Tyler Talkington, a senior at Bowling Green High School.
The Howard Street Dance Studio gave dance demonstrations and group performances.
Raintree raffled off Cardinal baseball tickets, generously donated by the Bank of Louisiana. John Crisan, of Louisiana, won the two tickets for a game on July 23.
Nearly 100 people attended the event. Raintree Arts Council appreciates the support.
The next event at the Apple Shed will be the Missouri State Chili Cook-off on Aug. 3. There is a $3 gate fee for this event. Chili samples may be purchased and a cash bar will be available. There will be live music including the band “Everyday People” from St. Louis.
There will be a student chili-themed art contest (these pieces were donated to the arts council which can be purchased) as well as several raffles will be held during the day including one of local art to benefit the Raintree Jamie McIlroy Memorial Scholarship.
