TAYLORVILLE — The Christian County Historical Society brought back the Persimmon Festival for 2022 last weekend. The committee said “We had a great turn-out on Saturday, November 5th, and we are grateful for all of you who showed their support for the museum.”
This year they had a Persimmon Bake-Off. The categories were Cookies, Bread & the Most Creative. The winners were Amy Heberling for Cookies, Lori Law for Bread, and Monita Kalka for Most Creative.
Judges for this year were Joan Swearingen, and Evelyn Hildebrand.
The visitors were able to get their persimmon fix from the generously donated baked goods to sell, and from the wonderful efforts of the persimmon pullers: Lorretta Law, Lynda Skinner, Jeni Boaden, Monita Kalka, Kay Frevert, Phil Bliler, Joanna Tucker, Michelle Hyatt, Alex and Alister Ostermeier, and Roman Ratliff. The majority of the Persimmon Seeds were spoons.
The winner of our State Quilt raffle was Teresa Durbin and Quilt Show winner for Best of Show as well as 1st place, was Lynda Skinner.
