The Killdeer School was host to a large number of entrants of cooked and preserved foods, fresh garden vegetables and some very impressive arts and crafts projects.

One of the favorite classes was the Pie Contest.

The Biggest Surprise award was won by Sheila Murphy with a peach apple pie.

Best Crust was awarded to Alice Darwin with a raspberry pie and Denise Sandvick took the Best Flavor ribbon with a Hawaiian pie.

The top two winners were granddaughters of Lynelle Sandvick, the 2012 Best Pie winner.

The girls have been practicing their pastry skills throughout the year. They also enter baked items in the 4H static event. There was a 10-point difference between the two pies.

This year’s Chili- Cookoff was quite successful with eight teams entering chili.

The chilis that were entered varied from mild to spicy and from red to green. The teams that entered were Cenex, Cheryl Boyce, Office Express, Larry Bakken, First International Bank, Western Blessings and the fire department.

After all proceeds were paid out, $200 was donated to the High Plains Cultural Center.

Neil Thomas, of the Thunder Valley Ranch received a $100 check for winning the Chili Cookoff.

June Johnson won the Doll Contest. She made a pink sequin dress with boots on her doll. There were 18 dolls entered in the contest.

Several of the clothes were homemade. There were a couple of extra outfits that were not on any doll that were also auctioned off. The dolls sold from $15 to $90.

The auction raised approximately $1200 for the Cultural Center.

Dunn County Cruisers put on a successful first car show in Killdeer. There were 42 entries, some from as far as Montana, Carson, Bismarck and all of our local surrounding towns. Larry Bakken took home $181 as the winner.

The donation from the 50/50 raffle was $181 going to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Sponsorship for this event was overwhelming!

The American Legion Auxiliary Lunch was a success and brought in good money for the Auxiliary Club and Legion Hall. Almost 100 people were served Sunday morning following the fun run.

The Fun Run was on the paths at the golf course. There were nearly 25 people that were ready to walk/run Sunday morning.

Participants ranged in age from five years old to 80 years old. Times varied from 24 minutes to one hour.
