Jackie DeLorge, chairperson for the Octoberfest event, said,
"We have some very distinguished judges for our Apple Pie and Salsa contests." DeLorge went on to say, "Speaking of judges, Craig Alston will be one of our judges along with attorney, Scott Schisler, newsman Jay Brandow, Mayor Mike Buda, author Dave Rogers and Bangor trustee Dick Bishop."
DeLorge added, "We are still taking applications for the contests and kids are welcome to enter too!" DeLorge said, "We have everyone from a grandmother and granddaughter entering an apple pie together and a little boy and his mom entering the salsa contest. It is not only the ladies that are entering either.... we have men who have also entered the salsa contest."
The festival is being presented through the Stewardship
Committee and according to DeLorge, it is evident that St. Mary's has many good stewards as many are offering their help without even being asked which is the spirit of St. Mary's!
