The Baconfest sponsored by the Rotary Club Saturday at the fairgrounds was successful, according to the event’s committee.

Committee member Lynne Unnerstall said it was the sixth year of the Baconfest, and the favorable weather and many volunteers  made the event successful.

She said a special thanks was due to the sponsors: Bank of Franklin County, Bank of Washington, Citizens Bank of New Haven, Clemco Industries, Deppe Farms, Missouri Pork Association, Diana Holdinghausen State Farm Insurance, Straatmann Toyota, Sydenstricker John Deere Tractor, Unnerstall and Unnerstall CPA, Wells Fargo and Zick, Voss, Politte and Richardson, Attorneys.

“The expanded layout was well received by both vendors and attendees alike,” Unnerstall said. “Thanks to all who helped make Baconfest 2018 such a success. And put June 8, 2019, on your calendar for next year’s Baconfest.”
