Mayhaw Festival held May 18-20

By Evelyn White

The 25th Annual Starks Mayhaw Festival was held Thursday through Saturday, May 18-20.

It was hot and the rain held off except for a small shower on Saturday morning.

New booths were added and many of our vendors returned for another year.

Thanks to all the vendors and visitors that continue to support the Starks Mayhaw Festival.

Several of the booths held drawings for prizes. Those winners were:

Karol Martin, jelly basket from Kim Statum’s Jelly;

Evelyn White, gas grill from Stark’s Truck Stop;

Vickie Mitchell, Isle of Capri room/meals, from Starks Business and Civic Association;

Raymond Bussell, Delta Downs room/meals from Starks Business and Civic Association;

Barbara Johnson, quilt from Starks VFW Post #759 & Aux.;

Midge White, wheelbarrow from Starks Garden Club.

The Mayhaw Jelly Judging Contest was held Saturday morning.

Winners were: 1st - Ashley LeCombe; 2nd - Oshelia Fittz; 3rd - Kim Statum

Evelyn White and Pauline Butler churned the butter for the biscuits on Saturday morning. David Griffis, Will Withers, Kim and Larry Statum and Aphelia Fittz provided Mayhaw jelly for the biscuits.

James Eaves, a former vendor, of Merryville, gave a demonstration on making jelly. Johnny Smith of Singer did a grafting demonstration.

Winners of the Scavenger Hunt and other winners will be announced at a later date.
