The Boone County Extension Homemakers’ Open Show Fresh Baked Foods Auction earned more than $6,000 Wednesday night.
Miss Boone County Maci French auctioned a carrot cake for a record-tying $2,000 to Walter Burtner and the Shively family, owners of Boone County Livestock, who have bought whatever baked good the fair queen has sold for six consecutive years. Lizzie Messenger, pictured above,  first runner-up and Miss Congeniality, auctioned a cherry pie with a lattice top and 4-H clover decoration that she baked. More details in the Lebanon Reporter.
