Another Great Valley View Gathering
Annual BAR contest – as in, “cookie” bar.
We have a lot of fun at Valley View Senior Cooperative centered around food and this time it was the annual gathering to sample and judge the “best” bar recipe and the “baker”. Nine of our “trusty” Eden Prairie police and firefighters came ready to “eat, sample and judge the winners. They loved it, but left on a “sugar high”. Incidentally there was a fire call right after they got here and the fire truck had to go, they were sent “take out” for the effort.
There were 3 winners and they received nice gift cards. We obviously have one “super baker”, Sheila, she has won three years in a row! To be honest, many competitors’ bars were neck and neck with the top winner so no one should feel their entry was less than fantastic.
As usual, it was a fun time to meet and thank our wonderful “community servants” and visit with them. We feel so honored to be able to do things like this simple annual bar contest as a token of our deep appreciation for those brave young men and women!
We who live here enjoyed a lot of sugar and smiles and no insulin shots were needed. That’s always a good thing… :-)
