Wanda English Burnett, Editor
Monday, October 8 is the day to get your tickets!
At 8:00 a.m. ticket sales will begin for the November 8 Simply
Christmas Taste of Home Cooking Show. The tickets are available
at Ripley Publishing Co. located at 115 S. Washington Street in
Versailles. There is no limit on the amount you want to purchase
and they will go fast for only $8.00 each.
The show is generating a lot of excitement as area businesses
have joined with the Osgood Journal and The Versailles Republican
to bring the exciting holiday event to Versailles.
Fourteen booths will be set up for attendees to browse before
the show actually begins. The doors will open at 5:00 p.m. giving
plenty of time for shopping, eating, and getting free samples.
There's no need to cook supper before coming to the show. The
Dabney Baptist Church will be offering chicken salad on croissants,
BBQ sandwiches, along with drinks and homemade pies.
Many of the booths will have merchandise available to purchase
so bring your wallet! You can get some Christmas shopping done,
learn about making holiday food, and get free prizes all at the
same time. Tri Kappa members will be offering their famous cheese
balls and pecans for sale. Other food booths include Pampered
Chef, Tasetfully Simple, Cali Fine Foods, Simplicity Gourmet and
Historic Hoosier Hills promoting locally grown meat.
You can purchase Christmas gifts from booths such as A Touch of
Country Floral, Mary Kay, Gold Canyon Candles, Longaberger and
Curves, a fitness center, will be on hand to remind us that all
that great holiday food has to go somewhere. Exercise can actually
give you more energy, prolonging your shopping experience!
The Friendship State Bank will also have a booth you will want
to stop by.
The entire evening is designed to be fun and festive. Dana Elliott
from Taste of Home will be giving a fantastic demonstration of
holiday cooking. There will be numerous prizes given out including
a variety of door prizes and bags of groceries. Everyone in attendance
will receive a goody bag filled with merchandise and coupons for
even more savings.
The event will be held at the South Ripley Elementary Gymnasium
with the doors opening at 5:00 p.m. The show will start at 7:00
p.m. Seating is first come, first served.
Get there early, secure your seat, and then shop and enjoy dinner
at the Dabney Baptist Church booth.
