Great food served up by Rowan members at music fest

The Rowan County Chapter held its annual fundraiser at the Old Time Music Festival, which took place at Jaycee Farm in Morehead on July 25 and 26. This was the fifth year the chapter worked the festival, and the fourth it served as the sole food vendor.

Rowan 2014 fundraiserThe chapter set up two food stations, a KFTC informational table with KFTC merchandise, and a spacious eating pavilion.

Ted Withrow oversaw the primary food station, which offered vegetarian and non-vegetarian soup beans and corn bread, hamburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches (with slaw), fried taters and fresh corn.

Doug Doerrfeld managed the secondary station, which provided bean burritos (with home-made salsa), Brazilian black bean soup, and a black bean and chickpea salad.  On Saturday morning, Doug and his crew served delicious breakfast burritos to the hungry crowd.

Erik Lewis staffed the informational table both days, fielding questions and encouraging KFTC membership and support. Thanks to his efforts, KFTC has two more paying members and hopefully more on the way.

A number of chapter members brought food and supplies to the festival and worked the food stations. In addition to supplying the bulk of the tables, and serving as de facto beverage coordinator, Allie Secor yet again coordinated the recycling efforts, making sure that proper disposal was both convenient and efficient for festival attendees.

Rowan 2014 fundraiserJeanette Debellefeuille set up a jewelry table and tent next to her food area, the pulled pork site, and successfully juggled both tables, graciously donating 20 percent of her “Jeannette’s Jems” sales to KFTC.

Two new members, Kathryn Reader and Chris Merritt, brought baked goods, worked Ted’s food station, and even volunteered to staff the festival gate on Saturday.

By providing good food at a fair price, the chapter was able to raise almost $1,400 for KFTC.
