Hotdish Hoedown 2007: Jell-O Contest
Members of Ladies Aid stopped by the hostess' house,
heated up their glue guns and created the 2007 round of trophies for the
Jell-O contest. Competition is expected to be fierce this year as the

to leave after dropping off their creations. Others argued that they had

the glue guns. They could join Ladies Aid or its Auxiliary if they stay
in town after high school. I hope they remember to send me their postal
and electronic addresses
