Froebel Park Grill Competition
The Froebel H.S. Park Committee will sponsor a Grill Cook-Off during the annual Froebel Nostalgia weekend. The committee is seeking persons to demonstrate their barbecue skills from Aug. 9 to 11 on the Froebel Park grounds. The Froebel Nostalgia Picnic will take place from noon to 6 p.m. Aug. 10. The Sterling Crown Carnival will be on the site from Aug. 8 to 11 featuring rides, carnival games and other attractions. The cost to enter the grilling competition is $100, which will entitle an entrant to have a booth to sell their barbecue during the entire weekend. Aug. 11, the judging will occur and first-, second- and third-place trophies will be presented. Persons interested in entering the “Grill Cook Off” should contact state Rep. Vernon G. Smith by phone.
