Taste of Newton!

BBQ chicken, smoked drumsticks . . . there are tantalizing smells coming from the kitchen at the Harvey County Historical Museum and; Archives this morning.  Our Director is busy cooking a delicious meal for our booth this evening during Taste of Newton. We will be trying a new menu this year with BBQ chicken sandwiches, smoked drumsticks, hot links, beef franks and drinks.

We are just one of the 70+ organizations that participates in the annual event that helps to kick off Bethel College's Fall Fest weekend.  This unique event that celebrates the variety of cultures that call Harvey County home through food has been going on since 1985.   In a roughly 3 block area on Main Street in Newton, a person will be able to sample traditional Mexican and Chinese dishes, as well as ethnic Mennonite foods in addition to items that are popular today.  

Our booth will be located at the corner of Main and 5th in front of the Rent-a-Center.

A big thank you to 
Darence Munsell, Master Plumbing Inc., 
for providing the smoker 
and to 
Midland Bank 
for sponsoring the booth.
