Gowensville Fall Festival supports community center

Published 9:15am Thursday, November 8, 2012

The lines will form before 8 a. m. for breakfast at the Nov. 10 Gowensville Fall Festival.

A big favorite are the creamy grits topped with tomato-bacon gravy made by long-time breakfast cook, Penny Dean. Sausage, gravy and butter biscuits are also featured on the menu.  Andy Zuidema’s grilled hot dogs have folks waiting patiently once the switch is made to lunch about 10:30 a.m.

The festival concludes at 2 p.m. with drawings for a king-size quilt made for the eighth year by Jean McRay and a gas grill donated by Freeman Gas. The festival takes place at the Gowensville Community Center, on Highway 11 near the intersection with Highway 14.
