The Jewett Fall Frolic isn’t all about winning, but those that take home a prize or two are always excited! This year the Fall Frolic had all kinds of ways for someone to feel like a winner including the always exciting raffle. By 2:30 p.m. the 3,000 raffle tickets had been sold so those who always wait until the end to purchase their tickets were out of luck. Six prize winners were chosen at the close of the day on Saturday, October 14. The winners are: C.J. Tracko from Elkhart, Bad Boy Zero Turn Mower; C. L. Powell of Normangee, Weatherby Vanguard 30-06; Canon Camera and accessories, Noble Wise from Marquez; Vera Bradley Luggage and the Kate Spade Purse, Tonya Donahoe from Normangee; and $100 Gift Card, Clayton Cox from Buffalo.
Two contests that are always a hit are the photography contest and the baking contest. Winner of Best of Show for the Photography Contest and taking home the $50 cash prize was Tyler Morris. Tyler also won Viewer’s Choice in the Amateur category, while David Clute won Viewer’s Choice in the Professional category and Emily Page won Viewer’s Choice in the Youth category.
The Baking Contest saw Shelly Burns taking home the $50 cash Grand Prize for her pumpkin cupcakes. First place winners in the Adult category were Stacy Schakel, cake; Lula Faye Woodson, pie; and April Nelson, other. Youth first place winners were Breanna Watson, cake; Madi Carlisle, pie; and Landon Martin, other.
The Jewett Public Library hosted local author Becki Willis while the Jewett Historical Museum had a sale and a candy-guessing contest. Winner of the candy-guessing contest was Cylen Brown, who took home a giant jar of candy for her mathematical talents.
Now that the Jewett Fall Frolic is a wrap for 2017, the Jewett Area Chamber of Commerce will begin planning for 2018, working to support local businesses and offer activities and events that the whole community can enjoy. It is because of the many volunteers and the support of the local community that the Fall Frolic was successful and continues to grow each year. Go ahead and mark your calendar now for Saturday, October 13, and plan to be in Jewett for another fun Fall Frolic day!
