Would you like to have biscuits and gravy the way Grandma made them, or fried pies like Aunt Sa- die cooked them? Well, here is your chance. On Satur- day, Oct. 17, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Country Fast at the Edgewood Presbyterian Church will give you an op- portunity to take a peek at what it was like years ago. You can see apple butter being cooked in a kettle over an open fire and purchase jars of the delicious' concoc- tion all day long. There will be plenty made beforehand so that you do not have to wait until the kettle is ready to come off. Watch Arvie Maynard whittle, or Tammy Dotson make lye soap, just as folks of a century ago did. Good home-style cooking will be available all day. The Country Breakfast features biscuits, gravy, sausage or bacon, eggs, fried apples, hash browns, coffee, milk, and orange juice. It will re- mind you of those breakfasts on the farm years ago when everyone needed plenty of sustenance for the work day ahead. Country Cooking, which will be served after break- fast, will include chicken & dumplings, pinto beans with cornbread, hot dogs with all the trimmings, apple dump- lings, soft drinks, water, and coffee. To further sat- isfy your sweet tooth, try the homemade fried pies, either apple or cherry. Or better yet try one of each. Then visit the Sweets & Treats area where there will be desserts galore. You can find here chocolate, pumpkin, and apple treats, along with breads and sug- ar-free items for those who need to watch their sugar, as well as an assortment of other goodies to whet your appetite. The music will also re- .mind you of days gone by, especially here in Appala- chia. "Psaltrio" is a group that plays mountain instru- ments, specializing in sweet mountain dulcimer and bowed psaltery tunes - folk, traditional, and Scottish/ Irish. Members of the group are Tish and Greg Westman, Jackie Williams, and friends. Tish was the 2007 MidEast- ern Regional Mountain Dul- cimer champion. They will be performing at intervals in the Great Hall. And no event celebrating the good ole days would be complete without some spirited gospel music. The "New Creations LEWIS THEATRE Taste Of i:Heaven & Cheese Shop Sandwiches Served 10:00AM - 2:00PM 304-497-3425 Gospel Singers," from the Summersville area, will give outdoor performances at noon and 3 p.m. if weather permits. If it does not, they will be in the sanctuary of the church. Handcrafted items made by some of the creative folks at Edgewood will be for sale. These include many things you can use for decorat- ing or to give at Christmas, but there will also be plenty for other seasons as well. Trees, wreaths, baskets, or- naments, and assorted gift items will help you get ready for any season of the year. Let's not forget the kids. Kidz Carnival will be held under the Big Top with rea- sonably priced games like bean bag toss, lollipop pull, pick-up ducks, and ring toss. Prizes will be awarded for each game. Scooby Doo .will make appearances at various times during the day. You can take photos of your children with Scooby Doo and with carnival-style cut-outs. Kidz Carnival will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Another visitor to Coun- try Fest will be Barney Fife, AKA Wes Fondale, who will be around and about from 1 to 3 p.m. Watch ole Barney as he tickets some people, deputizes some others, and even arrests a few. You might have to bail out a loved one if the Barney catches him/ her. Or you might want to have your picture taken with Mayberry's famous deputy. It will be the opportunity of a lifetime. Along with all the fun and hilarity you will be helping some worthy causes. The proceeds from Country Fest will benefit the Edgewood Growth and Improvement Fund, the Edgewood Schol- arship Fund, HospiceCare, and the Arpi Tordai Roma- nian Educational Ministry from the Alderson Presbyte- rian Church, which assists Romanian students who cannot afford to go to high school.
