The Cherry Days committee is seeking bakers to showcase their recipe with cherries.
On the 4th of July, from noon to 12:30 p.m., bring your "cherry" item to the Cherry Days booth, located by the playground in Paonia Town Park. Judges will look for presentation, use of cherries and flavor. Item must be in a throwaway container and no refrigeration is provided. The committee will keep and sell your baked item to the general public after the judging. Winners will be announced from the main stage. Cash prizes awarded for first through fourth places.
For information call Esther Kinser, 527-5299.
