The Central Missouri Agriculture Club will have their Pie Contest, Auction and Banquet on January 25. It’ll take place at the Pork Place at the Missouri State Fairgrounds.  People, I think we all know what I'm about to talk about: pie.  I contend that the word "pie" is one of the most fun words to say, and that correlates to how much fun it is to eat.  The longstanding debate of pie vs cake is heated, but few things get heated so deliciously as pie.

I love pie.  I love pie ingredients.  I love the people that grow the ingredients to put in pie.  That's why you should also love the Central Missouri Agriculture Club.  They're investing in the future.  They're working to get the kids involved to keep pie ingredients growing so that our pies of tomorrow will be just as delicious.

I got to talk to Billy Ficken from the Central Missouri Agriculture Club about the dinner, the pie auction, and where the proceeds will go.

So don't miss out on any of the fun coming up.  The pie contest will begin at 1:30 p.m. and the social hour will be at 6:00 p.m.  The meal begins at 6:30 p.m. and the auction will follow.  Make your plans to attend for a cost of $15 for adults, and children aged 7-15 are a cost of $13.  All money raised promotes keeping youth in agriculture through 4-H, FFA, and scholarships.

Pie pie pie pie,
