If you can bake a pie, or if you just love a great dessert, plan to participate in a pie baking contest and auction scheduled for Saturday, February 9, 6:30 p.m., in Luther Hall - Augustana Lutheran Church in Andover, Illinois. The contest categories are: Mayors, Veterans, News Media, Pastors and Community. The event is to help fund an aisle of flags and sidewalk adjacent to the Veterans' Memorial Garden at the Andover Lake Park. A trio of professional food connoisseurs will be the judges, and the winners will receive prizes donated by area merchants. Persons interested in entering the pie contest should contact Amber Lilly: lil_lilly5@hotmail.com or Denise Lilly: (309) 521-8132. Pies can be delivered to Luther Hall between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

The event is being hosted by the Andover Tourism Council and Andover Village Board. Auction is courtesy of Stenzel Auction Services. The 2010 pie auction for Andover's 175th celebration raised $4,191, so we are looking to top that, but can only do that with YOUR HELP!
