CEOS to sponsor pie, cupcake event

PHILIPPI — This year’s Pie Contest at the 29th Annual Blue & Gray Reunion gives a nod to contemporary tastes by adding a cupcake division to the traditional pie division, according to Betty Daugherty, Barbour County CEOS president.

The Barbour County Community Educational Outreach Service began partnering with the Blue & Gray Reunion Committee in 2016 to sponsor the Pie Contest as a way of celebrating an event that would have occurred at the time of the Civil War, the basis for the annual reunion.

The Barbour County CEOS agency has continued with the partnership helping to grow the Pie Contest by expanding its participation. This year’s addition of one of today’s trending desserts will give even more opportunities for bakers to join in the fun of the contest.

More information about the Pie and Cupcake Contest is available by contacting the BC CEOS at the County Extension Office at 304-457-3254 or online at the CEOS Facebook page.
