Continuing to put Webster City on the map

There are a multitude of activities and events going on in Webster City these days. One simply has to look at the Daily Freeman-Journal’s Go and Do column to see that. From RVTV to the RAGBRAI pass-through, from fall festivals to pancake dinners, from shopping events to craft fairs, anyone who says there’s nothing going on in town, is obviously not looking.

The Daily Freeman-Journal was pleased to offer one of those opportunities for local residents last week. The Taste of Home Cooking School was a rousing success. Hundreds of novice and experienced home cooks attended and learned some great recipes and baking tips from Culinary Specialist Karin Davis.

Although so many people stepped up to help bring this great event to town, The Daily Freeman-Journal and staff would like to specifically thank the following:

The wonderful staff at the Webster City School for hosting the event, including Mike Sherwood, Brent Jorth, Sandy Ausenhus, Deb Adams, Dave Orton, Mike Tempel and Bruce Caquelin. Webster City is indeed fortunate to have such wonderful people and facilities to host community events.

Tyler Abens for his masterful handling of the emcees duties, he made this a fun event.

JoAnn Robb at the Chamber for her help in lining the many volunteers needed to help Karen Davis, the Culinary Specialist.

A special thanks to Deb Brown at the Chamber along with Kevin Rubash from Interior Spaces for their expertise in helping with the show set up.

Dale Mitchell and his people from Hy-Vee provided a wonderful meal to 120 VIP ticket holders plus provided food at the vendor show. Twenty-six vendors showed at the pre-show event that was a great success as hundreds had the opportunity to visit these vendors

Lastly, we thank the the nearly 375 people who attended the show. We trust that you had an eventful, fun evening.

It was a great pleasure for the Daily Freeman-Journal to bring the Taste of Home Cooking School to Webster City and it’s events like these that continue to put our community on the map.
