Cooperative hosts bake-off competition to celebrate 85th anniversary
PEC employees and their families gathered at the cooperative’s Junction office September 6, to put their best baked goods forward in celebration of the co-op’s 85th anniversary. Entries ranged from cakes and cookies to pies and a variety of delicious confections. Candace and Lauren Morrison of Junction’s The Honey Bean Coffee and Tea Company served as the competition’s grand prize judges.
Employees who didn’t compete still had a chance to participate by taste testing entries with a $5 donation to benefit PEC’s Power of Change Program. Throughout its history, PEC has been committed to caring for its communities through programs like Power of Change that help support local nonprofits. Showing this concern for community is part of our cooperative difference.
The following employees and their entries were named winners in their respective categories:
Grand Prize: Selected by Candace and Lauren Morrison based on appearance, taste, and texture.
- Tammy Molina, PEC administrative assistant — Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake
People’s Choice: Selected by employees.
- Kayleigh Childress, PEC member relations support services agent —Ooey Gooey Bars
Lucky Draw: Selected by a random draw of entries, except those selected as the Grand Prize and People’s Choice award winners.
